Time to reflect as we “Stay Safe – Stay Home” during this Holy time of the year. Growing up in Manchester, New Hampshire, I remember during my grammar school years at Our Lady of Perpetual Help School the need to have the perfect Easter outfit along with the over the top Easter hat. A bonding experience with my mother – we would go downtown to Pariseau’s to select it. One year straw was in, another year it was flowers on a stretchable knit cap. Thinking back several Easter’s before those hat bonding experiences, I can still clearly visualize the details of a dusty pink coat and matching round pocketbook in the shape of a cat’s face – with little ears. The set made by my mother also had hand stitched whiskers, nose, and eyes. That attention to the details has stayed with me. I have no idea what happened to that wonderful Easter coat and cat purse, but I still remember the fine construction and the stitching of the details – so what do you remember?
Wishing you a Happy Spring, Happy Easter, and Happy Passover!
