Cinderella, eat your heart out!

In the 1970's Tupperware parties were all the rage. Women of all ages came to a friend's house and drooled over plastic containers for salad, freezing dinners and other inexplicable uses. I was never at one myself but I still remember the excitement in our house when Mammy came home from one with....ice-lolly moulds!
Oh the euphoria over filling them with diluted Miwadi, placing them in the freezer and sitting waiting from them to be ready.
Ah, those were simple times!
Times have moved on and now, us women go to....
Shoe and Handbag parties!!!!
Yipee!
My niece Lauren held one last night. I was a bit late going, as usual, but the minute I went in, I espied my babies. Everyone else had passed them by and said
"Oh wait til Noeleeen gets here. She'll love them."
They know me so well.
 
And yes, those are real spikes! I have no idea where I will actually wear them but they would come in fierce handy at a crush at the bar. Bet I'd get served first!
