They say "Darling, what did you do for those pearls?"
My darlings, gifts are never expected! But, if the spirit moves you, here are a few ideas! --- Please do not bring me bouquets of flowers. As lovely as they are, they draw too much attention. If you must bring me a flower, conceal it within a bag or similar
Teas and Coffees: I enjoy a good sit down with a cuppa, a heart-racing book, and my imagination to run wild. Tea and coffee are welcome pick me ups and a great way for me to linger over our shared encounter every morning! (I also collect tea pots and tea sets... don't laugh!)
Art: I am currently collecting vintage and vintage-reproduction pin up poster art. If it looks like our WWII GIs might have had it on their plane's nose cones, I probably will love it! Posters, framed pictures, old calendars, all are welcome.
Lingerie: I am obsessed with lingerie. I am quite proud of my vintage collection, and am always happy to show it off! Some of my favorite lingerie sites are What Katie Did, Kiss Me Deadly, and Secrets in Lace. I am a true 34DD-30-38, which makes me a medium in most things. My shoe size is 6.5-7.
**A note on UK sizing. The UK has their very own strange measuring system, and it does NOT match the US system of dress sizes. When in doubt, ask me my size! Or, better yet, a gift card says "I care, but I also trust you to pick something fabulous!**
For my pin up girl fetish, I turn to sites such as Pin Up Girl Clothing, Stop Staring!, and Bettie Page Clothing.
I also have a wish list on Amazon.com, set up with a direct mailing address to my personal PO Box. There, you will find things all eclectic and sundry. If you aren't comfortable picking out something for me, but still wish to gift, amazon.com gift cards are always a safe bet.
Want to be memorable AND penny-wise? I adore those silly and sappy Hallmark cards! No really, I do! I keep all of them in my very special hidey-hole.
