Alas, I must now leave it incomplete and do the necessary prepping for the NYE quilt.
Consequently I have just one item to show for VTT, this Wedgwood Lady's compact.
It was given to me by my college friend MA when I was an attendant in her wedding party in 1969 - or was it 1970? I confess I am not certain as my DH would say "I have slept a few nights since then" LOL !
Isn't it beautiful and elegant?
I have pics somewhere of that event and if I were not so far behind I would go find them but I will try to do that for next week, just for fun!
The compact is in fine condition even though the finish is a little worn, because I have always kept it in it's original bag that is a bit more worn!
The original label is till intact..........
and you can tell it is used, has face powder in it.
I love this compact and treasure it so if MA ever reads my blog I would want her to know that after four decades this gift is still in use!
Now if you are blogging this last day of 2009, head on over to visit our VTT hostess , Colorado Lady's blog and see who else has time for blogging on NY Eve!
PS Keetha's and JoJo's aprons are on their way!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
