It's her wedding corsage...from 1958! It looks pretty good when you consider it's been around for 58 years.
It's a bit yellowed, but overall it's in good shape.
She said she found it laying in the bottom of her closet. It must have gotten squashed out of a box when things were being moved around on the top shelf.
She wore a dark blue suit to get married in, so you can picture how crisp the white corsage looked on her shoulder.
Donna and Fred...my Mom and Dad.
I wish I had thought to try and take a picture of their wedding picture to add here. They didn't have a lot of photos taken that day, but I think I remember one that had been enlarged and colorized.
I'll have to find out more about that!
