My dears, I don't know how to explain why your beloved narrator has managed to accumulate a large collection of bow ties. They just seem to find me! As this is a random post day....or at least it was an hour ago, I'm a bit late posting today...I thought, 'Hmmm. What's more random than a girly with a bunch of men's clip on ties?'
So here they are. The ages range anywhere from the late 1940's to the early 1960's, they're all clip-ons, and they're all loverly! Several of these belonged to my grandfather. The extra tiny bow ties and the itty bitty clip-on tie were my dad's when he was a little boy in the very early 1950's. I've been searching for more of the kiddle ties, but they seem a bit harder to come by.
Update on getting my real size back...Two weeks ago, I couldn't get any of my trousers buttoned. Today I can get them buttoned without too much effort, so I'm probably back down to a 0 at the mo. They're still a bit too tight to wear though. I'm determined to wear them two weeks from today!!
