Just an old Myrtle at heart


Many people who know me will compare my tastes and demeanor to that of an old lady, and I'm okay with that! I am not ashamed to say I admire the finer things in life such as: over the top floral upholstered chairs, librarian-esque clothing, rice pudding, musicals, cat mania and anything decorated with pearls! ... speaking of which Pearl is the perfect name for my next cat (or poodle!) It's not exactly out the norm for my Grandmother to give me her old clothing... she's a stylish old lady and we're practically the same size!

Here we have a few selections with a modern twist that my inner Myrtle simply can not live with out!






From top to bottom:

Thank you so much for featuring our poodle lamp in your post. I think there's a little Myrtle in all of us!

You're not alone! I definitely have an old soul as well, she's called Edna. And three of my best friends are Gert, Bea, and Millie! xo
