It’s day 22 of the KIOS blogathon, and today’s prompt is: Share with us a picture of you when you were wee!
I have only a handful of photos of me as a kid. My family wasn’t very interested in photography to begin with, and as the youngest of three kids I think by the time I showed up a lot of the shine of capturing those endearing life moments had worn a bit thin.
But here’s one of my fave photos from when I was five. It’s clearly a studio shot, and I can’t for the life of me imagine why it was taken as that certainly wasn’t something our family did. But I do remember my grandmother having a frame copy of it, so perhaps she spearheaded the effort.
What delights me most of all is I remember that dress. It was silvery gray and the twirly full skirt was an overlay – those tiny patterns were cut out on the top skirt layer so an underlayer showed through. I’m sure I was wearing patent leather mary janes as well, because it’s just what the outfit calls for, don’t you think?
And because we’re revealing ourselves, here’s my pick of this week’s selfies. Every week I do a little playing card collaged-summary of my week ala Stargardener Teresa Robinson and include my the favorite of my daily selfies on the back of the card.
Isn’t my vintage poinsettia pin wonderful – that was a real treasure find!
What about you? Are you a fashionista, or like me is it a stretch to dress to the fours? Have a favorite pair of shoes? Been part of the masses that helped create 2013’s designation as The Year of the Selfie? Do tell – you know I love to hear.
