We had to really take care of our clothes. I can remember darning my socks over and over again so I wouldn’t have to wear a sock with a hole in the back. It was easy to darn but never very comfortable to wear. I was really lucky when I was in junior high & high school. I got a lot of hand-me-downs. One time I had 20 pair of hand-me-down shoes. I thought I was rich! I always had plenty of clothes from my older sisters. What I didn’t have and needed, I made. The popular cologne of the time was “Evening in Paris.” It came in a dark blue bottle. I wish I could find some today like that. It was not expensive and it smelled wonderful. When I first started wearing makeup, I didn’t have an eyebrow pencil, so I blackened my eyebrows with a burnt matchstick. This actually worked pretty good. I overdid it one time, and Lolly and Cleo complained to mom that I had too much matchstick on my brows so I think she made me take some of it off. Maybe I was trying to get that Joan Crawford look. I had hand me down lipsticks, and things like that, but I brought my eyelash makeup. It was in a little plastic box with a tiny brush that looked like a jewelry cleaning brush. I was always fascinated with trying to look pretty. Most girls my age were not interested in makeup that much.
