I thought I’d start a “Monday Memories” series to put down some sort of random memories that pop up in my brain here and there. I’d love to hear some of yours, too!
I heard the name “Heidi” yesterday and it reminded me of a girl who took care of my sister and me during the summer one year when our mom had gone back to work to sell real estate. (This was around 1980 or 1981, when the real estate market had unfortunately bottomed out.)
Heidi was 17 years old and she was a wonderful babysitter. She was very pretty and had an old pickup to drive us places, which we thought was extremely cool.
The clearest memory I have of Heidi is that she had a purse that looked like a rolled up magazine. It was a plastic clutch style to hold under your arm, and you couldn’t tell it was a purse. I had never seen one before and she had gotten it on a trip somewhere, so I couldn’t get one. But, I just found some beautiful models and more info about them online at StyleWithAnna! This site just gave one away, but I missed it. :’-( You can buy them at Clutch For Cures, and I also found a vintage model on eBay. I’ll have to start saving immediately to get one!
