Red Velvet

A special little red velvet manicure set was another of those "grown-up" Christmas gifts received from my grandparents when I was around 9 or 10 years old. The implements are gold tone and the "cut-glass" bottles have their special spot inside the case. As a young girl, this sat on my dressing table and is now home in a drawer with other mementos. I never put any kind of liquids into the bottles, so they are like brand new. I never felt like I was a "girly-girl" having always been the one out with my Dad driving the tractor and working at other outdoor farm chores. Consequently, this kind of thing didn't get a whole lot of use by me. Of course, that doesn't mean that I didn't spend my fair share of time in front of a mirror as a teenager, primping for the day at school or a big date !!

You, a tomboy? I've never really seen that, since you have always been the prettiest girl in the room to me!

Thank you for that, my dear little girl !! I wasn't what I would call a real a tomboy, although I liked doing all the boy stuff with my brother. I was just my Dad's little farm hand !! Love, Mom
