I picked up two expertly crafted vintage aprons at my thrift store last week (what is that diamond-shaped stitching…a kind of smocking?). The best part is the label sewn on the inside…”HAND MADE BY Margie”. You gotta love a name like Margie…a classic 1940’s name…but still so cute.
I recently was getting ready to meet some friends from college and my daughter asked my friends’ names. “Well, there’s Linda, Kathy, Karen…” I said. Ellen thought about it for a second and said “Those are weird names”. I thought this was so funny. I guess when you are 6 and go to school with kids named Hannah, Ava, Fiona…and even Parker and Carter, those classic 1960s names must sound pretty funky. Lisa? Kim? Julie?…classic 1960’s names…now seen as “weird”.
