MOTHER'S DAY

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY



There are very few pictures of my family together. I believe there is just one picture of all six of us taken after I was married. It is the only photo I know of with all of my siblings and with Mom and Dad. This one must have been taken around Christmas 1955. Cindi looks to be about one and a half. Dad still has a bit of hair. Gosh, do I remember the pretty dresses that we got each Christmas. I can tell you the colors and feel of most of them. The dots were raised on the navy skirt and the top was a crisp white crinkly fabric. There is red piping around the collar and the red sash tied in the back.





I think this must have been taken in 1952 at Easter time. I remember that purse. It had a navy velvet ribbon that went down the middle of the purse. The top of the purse was like a hat or lid with a hole in the middle of it for the ribbon. As I recall the braided straw was woven in circles. Maybe this was not Easter as us girls do not have gloves on. I loved that purse. Mom looks so stylish. She was and still is a lovely lady.

Hi Rebecca.. I stumbled onto your blog over at Suzanne's place... 'At Home With The Farmer's Wife'. Thought I might just follow your blog since I grew up in Iowa and enjoy your photos. I too remember the colors of all my Easter and Christmas dressed from the 50's and 60's.

See you again soon!

Thanks for the kind words. If you got deep enough in my blog you might realize that I have a love affair with Australia. One day I hope to move there someday. It is wonderful that you go and visit your family there. Thanks again, Heidi

It really is great that everyone seemed to do some sort of tribute to their mom on their day!
