On Monday, Ethel and I picked up my mother and we went shopping. Now that's a real treat to do on a Monday! We visited the make-up counter, stopped in Coldwater Creek, and had fun looking at some purses in a local boutique. I wore my cropped jeans' jacket with a gold flower pin that, of course, had been purchased from a thrift shop. Mom really liked the pin on the jacket. She isn't a "pin girl" herself, BUT she did remember that she had these adorable blue butterfly pins that belonged to her mother, Lena. After we finished our wonderful and leisurely lunch, we went back to Mom's house and she gave me the pins. I WISH you could see them in person ~ the color is so intense and just a beautiful shade of blue. I KNEW as soon as I saw them, that I had to share them with you. A little Monday surprise for me ~ Lena's pretty blue butterflies! Aren't I lucky? I can't wait to wear them! Thanks Mom!
