Another Hot One

Temperatures are approaching 90 here on the Cape. It’s shaping up to be another beautiful weekend. Our prayers go out to France once again. Will it ever end? Vive La France!

The Weekend

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

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!

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

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.

Agnes – Our First Lingerie Model

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.

Rifle Falls, Colorado

Dave Gill, a great photographer and friend of ours sent along some beautiful photos of Rifle Falls in Colorado. Such an enchanting place! Thank you Dave! Dave reports that Colorado also has a wine industry, which we weren’t aware of. Marty and I are planning a coast to coast road trip in two years, so we’ll definitely want to visit Colorado. Please check out Dave’s work:

Flower Bali

bali-009
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.
