Turning 30, Wearing 40's




Last weekend there was a 30th birthday party for my DDIL. 
I got to make the cake/cupcakes for the party.
Which normally is a piece of cake...
ha ha ha.
But I was beyond challenged!
My recipe came from my  Miette cookbook.
I don't know what I did or didn't do but I was having a terrible time...
but roughly eight hours latter I managed to win and be on time for the party.
It was an 80's theme... which was really fun. 
But then, I realized that I didn't really know what 80's style was.
In my post a week or so ago, I shared that I lived in Yosemite during the 80's.
I never watched T.V. or possibly even read a newspaper. 
So, I took out my old clothes and opened up my hat boxes... because
what I remember wearing was vintage clothes and hats!
I have to tell you that I was transformed when I put them on!





I was waiting to see if any photos would surface on facebook...
but I don't seem to have any to show.
I just loved it (even though I didn't really quite fit the "theme"...
but I am a mother-in-law... so I really can do whatever I want, can't I?

I haven't had so much fun dressing up in a long time!
Oh, and the party was fun... and everyone loved the cake and cupcakes too.
And Jill had a happy birthday too!



Oh, and I couldn't bear to put away my hats, so I have been wearing them everyday this week!
(disclaimer: these photos of hats and dresses were not actual, but only similar to my collection)

I didn't have a television in the 80's either! You think we missed out? Nah....

Hard to think of the 80's as being vintage. Oh My, I must be getting old, it doesn't seem that long ago.

Oh those hats remind me of my childhood. My mother always wore a hat and I thought they were the most beautiful things ever!

What FUN!

Oh my gosh -- I bet this was the most fun!! My grandmother had *quite* the collection of hats. I wonder where they ended up?! I'd like to see some photos of *you* in your pretty hats! :)

Gosh...wish we lived closer. We have a 40's party tomorrow night and I need one of those great hats!!! LOVE the dress too. You go girl!

I LOVE hats! I wear them all the time. If I go in a shop where they know me, without a hat they have no idea who I am. We even have a hat shop in Oregon City now - unbelievable! (It's on 7th at the bottom of the elevator if you remember that.) I'm even getting my daughters and granddaughters to wear hats that I make them. And one grandson - I made him a fishing hat and a train engineer hat. Hats - don't leave home without one.
