Wear your Pearls Girls.....




Today...I am going to don my pearls to clean my house and pay homage to the woman who raised the bar for the American housewife.....June Cleaver.  Won't you wear your pearls today too?

Barbara Billingsley 1915-2010....  thanks for the memories.

Good Morning,
My hubby gave me a string of pearls on our wedding day. I think I shall wear them today...how do you think they'll look with my yoga pants?!

How is baby Flynn. I certainly hope he returns to normal soon.

Did you say you were celebrating a special day? Take care ~Natalie

Now if I owned pearls, I'd love to. I so enjoyed learning more about this actress who said in an interview that she never considered it typecasting to play the role of June Cleaver; she felt that it was an honor.

Oh, I was so sad to see this in the news. I love that show and who wouldn't want to be her, right?

Born in 1915!!! Can you imagine the changes that woman saw in her lifetime?

Oh, I loved Mrs. Cleaver. My friend's mom actually cleaned the house in a shirtwaist dress, pearls and little heels!! It's true.

I always clean in pearls and pumps.
Joking aside, this was, indeed, sad news, though.
