Hot and humid here on the Cape this weekend. Have a safe and fun weekend! Use plenty of sun block and perhaps wear a big hat!
It looks like it’s going to be a beautiful Father’s Day weekend. We’re looking forward to the annual downtown Hyannis Vintage Auto Show tomorrow. Here’s a picture of me from a couple of shows ago with Wayne from “Chasing Classic Cars.”
Poppies are so dramatic when they bloom, shown here from a few days ago. They are one of our favorite perennials. It’s supposed to be a beautiful weekend here on Cape Cod. I hope your weather is the same as here!
I picked about two pints of strawberries today from our front yard. That’s just the start. There’s probably a dozen more pints to pick once they’re all ripe. Tomorrow I’ll be making a strawberry rhubarb pie.
This is Agnes, our very first lingerie model. When we began, we had mostly friends and family modeling our vintage clothing. As we added lingerie, well, as you can imagine, modeling underwear is a whole different story. So along came Agnes – Agnes is the mannequin shown here – not me. We still use Agnes from time to time, usually when we need something modeled in a hurry and a model isn’t available, and when it’s not something I’m keen on modeling. BTW, the only reason I’m nude here is because I was between changes when we decided to get these Mary Green undies taken. Of the dozens of vendors we’ve had over the years, Mary Green products were my favorites. I love silk! It’s a shame that they went out of business. They made such beautiful and soft lingerie. We still have this type of brief in stock. These particular ones are actually cotton, not silk. But we still have some silk undies remaining. We’ll likely bundle them together and put them on Ebay at some point.
Bali routinely introduces new bra styles and at the same time discontinues styles after relatively short runs. However, there are a few styles that have endured for years, even decades. One of them is shown here – the Flower Bali. Two other long-running Bali bras are the Lace ‘n Smooth and the Double Support. By the way, Bali is a part of Hanesbrands. Also falling under Hanesbrands is Playtex, Maidenform, Flexees, Hanes Hosiery, DKNY, Lilyette, Leggs, and JMS. Just thought you’d like to know. You can order your Bali products here on Little Pink Dress, or on our sister site, Brabarella Lingerie.
Such a beautiful day today! Sunny and temps in the low 70’s. The long weekend is almost here!
We got a lot of work done in our garden yesterday – mostly planted seeds – Morning Glory, Lupines, herbs, pumpkins, beets, sweet peas, pole beans, etc. Also went to Sprout Farms in Cotuit and bought a half-dozen tomato and a couple of pepper plants. Marty got them in before the rain. Still have much more to buy. Also fit in a quick wine tasting in Cotuit. It rained last night and is raining on and off today. We did manage to get Bob out for a walk though.
Well today WOULD qualify as swimsuit weather (near 70), although I’m sure the water is still a little cool. Rain and wind are predicted to move in tomorrow evening and throughout Sunday, so we’ll need to get the yard work done quickly. Memorial Day weekend is just a week away! Have a great weekend!
