The Willow Manor Ball


As you can see I am dining with Wilson at the Willow ball tonight.
He has always wanted to attend a ball, and me being the kind soul that I am, I just could not turn him down.


This is the neclace that he was wanting me to wear, but i refused!


I insisted on something more elogant and quiet.


These are the shoes he wanted me to dance in, but I put my foot down on this one!


So I compromised with these.


Betty Boop is modeling the beautiful dress I will wear...isn't she lovely?


And last but not least...these are the gloves I chose for the ball.  Wilson prefers gloves to rings and things like that. After all he is a little sensitive.


Thank you for inviting me Willow...we are having a ball!

My grandmother used to wear white gloves to everything, even the post office.

Sounds like the start of a blog post. Maybe I'll write one in your honor!

Where do you get all your pictures? My goodness. I love the header on your other blog with the elephants.

Thank you C.M.,Willow,Bee,Bkm,Marilyn, and Cassandra for taking the time to mingle with me at the ball...Wilson can be a little quiet sometimes...:-)
And yes those high heeled tennis shoes do look wild don't they?
Cassandra i ususally get the photos at google images, unless it is a picture i have taken myself. Let me know when you post something about your grandmother and her gloves i would love to read it.
