A Gift I Will Cherish Forever

Yesterday I went to visit my good friend, Sachi (Sue is her given name but all her friends call her by her nickname Sachi...meaning "child of joy" in Japanese). Sachi is my friend who is going through chemo and I have to say she has never looked better! We think this round of chemo is doing a better job! Thank you all for your prayers!! Anyway, she blessed me with a gift I will cherish forever. She gave me her two vintage hats from the 1940's. I was beside myself! You all know how much I love the 40's and that era. I even tried them on. *sigh* The green one has a tag inside of it that says Macy's, New York (even MORE beside myself)!

I will be thinking of the perfect place to display them aside from the times when I'm alone and playing dress-up and pretending I lived in the 40's. Lol!






Thank you SO VERY MUCH, Sachi! I will cherish them forever and ever and ever!!! What a special gift from a very special friend. xo

I am kinda depressed...I thought I would be able to see you glowing while wearing one.

Oh my gosh...that's so touching. First of all, my prayers go out to your friend Sachi. I cannot even imagine what that is like to go through. What a lucky girl she is to have you for a friend. I used to collect vintage hats and have only about 3 or 4 left...along with my old powder compact collection I sold "sigh" and my vintage purse collection (which is still have). I love those 2 hats she gave you! That was such a kind and loving thing to do. I suspect she did that because you are such a kind and generous friend to her. You are so positive and I always appreciate your comments when you come by.

Seems since I went on vacation you blooged every day! I am trying to catch up. These hats are too divine. I wish hats were still The Fashion, I'd be wearing one, I'll tell ya! Hope Mocha continues to improve...Mr Ming sends get well wishes. (Me too) I love the new look of your blog. It's good to be back!
