Bargain! Shop Panties



I was going to provide a brief history of lingerie but, in searching online, I found many sites with that information. So I decided to provide links to the most interesting places that I found. While each article is different, some have duplicate pictures, mostly from the June 2004 exhibit of Lingerie Through The Ages at the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology (MFIT).

The links are listed in alphabetical order by source and will open in a new tab/window.

Hope you enjoy browsing!

I close my eyes and picture
The emerald of the sea
From the fishing boats at Dingle
To the shores of Dunardee.

I miss the river Shannon
And the folks at Skibbereen
The moorlands and the meadows
With their forty shades of green.

But most of all I miss a girl
In Tipperary town
And most of all I miss her lips
As soft as eiderdown.

Again I want to see and do
The things we’ve done and seen
Where the breeze is sweet as Shalimar
And there’s forty shades of green.

I wish that I could spend an hour
At Dublin’s churning surf
I’d love to watch the farmers
Drain the bogs and spade the turf.

To see again the thatching
Of the straw the women glean
I’d walk from Cork to Larne to see
The forty shades of green.

But most of all I miss a girl
In Tipperary town
And most of all I miss her lips
As soft as eiderdown

Again I want to see and do
The things we’ve done and seen
Where the breeze is sweet as Shalimar
And there’s forty shades of green.

Where the breeze is sweet as Shalimar
And there’s forty shades of green…

‘”Forty Shades of Green” is a song about Ireland, written and first performed by American country singer Johnny Cash. Cash wrote the song in 1959 while on a trip to Ireland . . . Cash once recalled performing the song in Ireland and being told by an old man afterwards that it must have been an old Irish folk tune.’ (© Wikipedia)

My family and I recently had an interesting visit to the Butterfly Pavilion in Westminster CO.
The tropical rainforest exhibit was just that (hot & muggy!) but FULL of butterflies.

Near the gift shop was a small display about silk and silkworms. I took some pics for you.
(Lots of people moving around so some pics are a little crooked.)

A silkworm cocoon dropped into Leizu’s teacup. She watched the cocoon unravel and the rest is history!

Adding a few other pics I took that I hope you enjoy!
