In this photo I think she was like, 14! Don't you always find that woman back in the 1950's always looked so mature for their age? I remember her telling me that she had it taken for her boyfriend at the time. It's hard to see but she was wearing a white furry collar and she added a mole to her cheek with her eyeliner pencil...she wanted to look "older" she said.
This picture is of my mom and dad a few years later. I think she is about 16 or 17 here and my dad about 19. I love this picture!
This picture is one of my favorites! It was taken to be used on the placecards for my parents wedding. She said she had the flu...you would never know it! I think she looks beautiful!
I had a few gifts to give out tomorrow and wanted something special to put them in. I had some matchboxes left over from a swap a while back and thought I would use them. I have to tell you, these are the first things that I have made in months. Is it weird that when I was going through my wallpaper stash that I missed that smell...that old musty wallpaper smell? So I decided to make more and put them in my shop tonight. I loved the way the came out! Also squeezed in one little journal...
So, tomorrow I will be spending the day with my boys. We are taking a ride out east on the north fork and have lunch with my best friend whose husband is also working. Hopefully I will make it to one of my favorite antique shops and some farm stands. Hope you all have a great day!
