We were watching a movie, or maybe a TV series, I can't even remember the name of it.
See the White pillowcase at the top? there was one in The scene of a man and woman in bed, you know the sex scenes they do now in every movie.
(Red Hot Button for me on these scenes, but I will spare you.)
You can use your imagination of what we saw.
What I SAW, was the pillowcases with crochet on them, I immediately began talking to Bob and describing what my mother did to pillowcases way back in the day.
You can imagine what HE saw....and also what he heard me saying while he was seeing..
After the movie I bombarded him with memories of my mom. As a small church pastor's wife, she was invited to many wedding showers, requiring gifts. Daddy's salary was 30 per week.. She would buy white pillow cases, and embroider them as you see in the photo above. In fact she used that pattern a lot, with the same lace on the edges.
Added to the gift of pillow cases, would be a box of Kleenex, with crocheted cover and a roll of toilet tissue, with matching crochet cover. Sometimes she added a crochet toilet seat cover.
Easy choice on size because there were only 2 sizes of sheets, twin or double and 1 size pillow case.
Bob did a Happy Dance while I regaled him with details....
think glazed eyes...
JUST LIKE the one YOU are doing now. Wake up, the post is OVER....
I never learned because she gifted me with them to and I was NOT fond of them.
UPDATE: we are fine, the storms that went through our area did not hurt us, limbs down and pool full of trash and Bob's towel has flown off to China...I missed a lot of sleep listening to the winds howl all night
|I found all these photo's by using google search... I was totally shocked that people are still making these.|
