Fall is time for the Maroon and Gold !

The inexpensive Mums from Home Depot!
 The bronze colored Spider Mums that seem to bloom forever….
and last a long time in arrangements in the house!
 And a few plants with tinges of bronze and maroon
But that is not the only reason I love Maroon and Gold!
 I am an unabashed University of Minnesota Sports Fan!!!
Maroon and Gold….
Goldie Gopher….

and Rah Rah Rah for Ski-U-Mah!

I have the prerequisite Gopher Sweatshirts….3 of them in fact!
My casual parka is dark maroon….so I look right in style when we go to games!

wait ’til you see what the Sweetwater son-in-law found for me on his vintage thrifting trips!

He is my hero!!!…He thrifts better than anyone I know
Better yet….he shares!!!

This vintage all wool sweater looks like it dates from the 1950’s!
It is in perfect shape….it is probably meant to be worn by a man with the bottom bloused…
I plan to wear it with leggings….pulled down long!

I found this 100% Silk U of M scarf at Goodwill for $1.99…
Since it came from the University of Minnesota Foundation…it probably cost a fortune!
It looks great with my camel blazer!
and now maybe tucked into my new sweater!!!

The Sweetwater Son-In-Law also scored this vintage wool blanket with the requisite M!
We have it in Mr. S’s den along with this great pillow that was a gift last Christmas!

It will be great to curl up with when I watch all those games on TV…
And….for the few times we go to the games….it is big enough for 2 people to stay warm!

I guess I am all ready to cheer on the team…win or lose!

Go Gophers!!!


Once a cheerleader always a cheerleader!!
