GARAGE salen party #14 meet and greet Buffalo Bill
Hi everyone, Hope all is well and you are looking forward to the weekend. I am as Mike is off this weekend and I always look forward to spending quality family time together. I may have mentioned recently Mike celebrated his 45th Birthday. Mike is a nostalgic type of guy. He loves things that are kitchy and conversation pieces, and that have meaning. He is so not generic and really likes things that are UNIQUE.....
( Hence, that is why he married me). My Mom sure knows him well, in fact she does better at the gift buying than I do. They have very similar tastes when it comes to food and antiques, and just in general. My Mom loves her son-in-law there is no doubt about it, and he loves her too! Well she found the coolest little bank for him at an antique store and I thought I would share it for my party today. If you do not know already We are original from Buffalo...Better known as Buffalonians, or known here in the South as HALF backs!....and YES we still route for the Buffalo Bills! A recent find by my MoM for Mike's birthday was this cool little Buffalo Billy Bank.
FIRST a brief HISTORY on the Bank
The Buffalo Savings Bank building is a majestic focal point in Buffalo and its banking history. Its design and sensibility toward the city around it easily outstrip those of its modern neighbors on Main Street.
The bank was chartered in 1846 as the first savings bank in the city. Among the founding trustees were Millard Fillmore, who became the 13th president on the United States and Nathan Kesley Hall, who became Postmaster General.
I remember this bank well as a child...the big clock would fascinate me....
K...now onto the cool find.
Now that I have mentioned we are still fans of the Buffalo Bills....it goes along with my theme for Miss Jenny'sRainbow Alphabet party. COLOR BLUE!~ My son Jack pretty much lives in his Jersey and the colors are Blue and red.
Here is a picture of Jack in his Jersey along with my cutie pie sister.
