Happy Mother's Day

3 moms

A photo from a long time ago. This is my grandma Elizabeth in one of her perfect sweater sets, my mom with her ponytail and bobby-pinned curl and me looking a bit overwhelmed with the attention. Somebody let me out of here :)

And I couldn't resist including another picture, of my mom and me on my second birthday. I can't figure out why I'm focused so intently on that birthday gift. Just look at that gorgeous barkcloth pillow above my head and I'm sure it was the genuine article, too! The curtains aren't bad either. Silly me :)

mom and me

Happy Mother's Day!

Love the pictures of your grandma, your mom and you. My mom used to put her whole head up in pin curls. I thought her 'do' once she combed it out was so glamorous. I remember bark cloth curtains with a similar floral pattern also. It always says 'fifties' to me. Thank you for the photos. What a treat. Jill

Oh, and that barkcloth...love it.
The curtains are that garden scene print. I have it in black.

And I'm having a great time in the feedsack pool. So many patterns I've never seen before! Pure eye-candy.
