Style Goes on Forever.

Like gorgeous spring days, it feels like you can never appreciate good neighbors enough. We had wonderful neighbors during the first two years in our first home. A friendly older couple and with around 170 years of living between them, it’s no surprise that both Mr. and Mrs. M led extraordinary lives. Mr. M was a WWII Prisoner of War and was one of thousands in the Bataan Death March. Mrs. M was a photographer and artist who added color to black and white pictures before cameras had that ability.

In the past 12 months, both Mr. and Mrs. M passed away. We’ve missed having them next door – I learned something new every time we talked. Their daughter came by yesterday to tend to estate matters and asked if I’d like anything to remember them by.  Even with Mrs. M gone, I’m still learning more about her – she had great style.

{adore this clutch. I added my own necklace, Kate Spade’s Think Pink Enamel Dot. I like mixing metal tones and thought the hot pink gave this clutch a little punk rock vibe}

Mr. and Mrs. M will be missed by so many. I’ll certainly think of them fondly whenever I turn on that radio or use one of these fabulous handbags.

  1. Couldn’t help but think of this quote when reading about Mrs. M…
    “Fashion changes, but style endures.” ― Coco Chanel
    Through your memories and the wearing and using of her things…
    Mrs. M’s style endures…
    a very precious post~

    • I love that quote. Thanks so much for such kind words. I think a huge part of the reason I love antiques and vintage items is the notion that you get to carry on the spirit of someone who loved that item just as much as you will.
