It is no secret that Doris Day is one of my favorites of all time! Pillow Talk with Rock Hudson?! My favorite movie. Ever.
It is also no secret that I am a lover of all things vintage. I shop for vintage clothing, wear vintage jewelry, choose vintage over new--whatever, whenever--and I ride Grammie's bike every chance I get!!
So it should come as no surprise that when the family mini-van died a month ago, I didn't shed a tear. And I didn't look for another mini-van. I took my time. And I found her. Doris.
I have a trunk for my picnic basket and quilt! The interior is brown leather to match the outside of the car and it has the original brown/green shag carpet on the floors!! Immaculate condition!! Ahhhhh -- it's love! One of her most charming features?! We have to unlock our doors the old fashioned way! I have heard myself say with a giggle, "Slide over the seat and unlock the back door!" But she is also fancy for her time--electric windows and an electric moon roof! Like most things, her beauty is in her simplicity.
I think we were made for each other!
I can't wait to tie a scarf over my hair and drive over to visit!!
