Sparkles

This wonderful lady came in to my work today. Helping her was the highlight of not just my day but the whole week! She is 90 years old, sparkly, spunky, and sweet! She is the DIY Queen. Her bag is covered in sequins, her cane in rhinestones, her wallet has a great big antique sparkling flower on it, and the glasses in her hand are covered in stones. Her grand-daughter helped her with the rockin' hairstyle, but she said the rest was all her. "Why buy when you can DIY?" I think today was her first time at the store, so hopefully I'll get to see more of her. She was so nice and sweet and I just wanted to pick her up and bring her home. When asked what her name was she said "just call me Sparkles".

Sparkles is amazing. I want to be as crazy as she is when I'm that old. Cool thing is that when you get that old, everyone accepts what you wear because of your age.
