“Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer, do!”Posted: September 16, 2014
“I’m half-crazy all for the love of you!
It won’t be a stylish marriage,
for I can’t afford a carriage.
But you’ll look sweet upon the seat
of a bicycle built for two!”
Do you know that old song? It was new over a century ago! Our parents used to sing it together. Dad would play his guitar and sing the first verse, and Mom would reply with the second verse.
“Michael, Michael, here is my answer true:
I’ll not cycle over the world with you!
There won’t even be a marriage
if you can’t afford a carriage.
For I’ll get switched
if I get hitched
on a bicycle built for two!”
Wonder if Michael ever scraped up enough funds to marry Daisy properly.
Meanwhile, here are some daisy items I found while getting my Vintage Bazaar goodies together.
First, a sweet set of eight aluminum daisy coasters in a little caddy:
No maker’s mark, but they are really nice quality. I’m tempted to keep them!
And Vera cotton daisy napkins that look like they were never used:
And an adorable enameled steel child’s ironing board:
So cute that no ironing board pad is needed!
Alas, I don’t have the toy iron to match. When Janeray and I were small, we had one that actually heated up. Anybody else have one like that?
All of my daisy things are headed to this weekend’s Vintage Bazaar!
