Excuse these old scans from the 90's: I have 40 of these 40's-50's quilted glove/hosiery boxes with my jewelry collections colorized inside. This floor-to-ceiling shelf is right by my sewing machine and Valentino enjoyed exploring while I was working. I think she is appealing to St. Theresa of the Little Rose nightlight for help in and out of the 8 rows of obstacles. Later I gave the nightlight to my little sister Teresa who doesn't get hokey antiques. I'm going to have to get it back from her.

Val is hiding in a beautiful hand-lasted pair of 1950's butterfly fabric stilletos and a sorta matching clutch. from same time. I'm ashamed to say she ate thru the beautiful linings (she was bored?) so I can never sell these shoes.

For years I thought Val was a he and kept ignoring everyone who said Valentino was really Valentina. She used to sit w/me when I was sewing and pull all the pins out of the tomato pin cushion - walk over to the edge of the table and make sure each pin was tossed over and hit the floor. It made a lot of work for me and I'd look up - there she would be eating the lining out of the bitchin butterfly stilletos.

    Thank you AmberRose & Mustangtony for your loves. Thank you Bellin68 and Manikin for your comments. Yes, that's Valentino doing what she enjoyed most - exploring the goodies.

    Kyra thank you! Now you have some insight on my name. I was given Val in 1997 and had her 10 yrs. She was so much fun and even went on a meeting w/me once quietly hiding inside my jacket while I booked a conference room for my company holiday party. Yes, I was pretty weird back then but she was such a perfect companion and I still miss her. I have 2 darlings now but never another Valentino.

    10 years! That's amazing, I easily understand you still miss her...Did she talked? Yes, budgies can!
