Green must have been her favorite color as several of the dress she made was the color.
This photo is from 1971 and I am 10 years old. My sister and I have matching mint green dotted swiss dresses. My mom is in the middle with the blue and white checked coat that she made. The only time she ever wore this coat was to church. Never anywhere else.
Check out that console TV in the background along with the gold drapes! I remember when we got that tv it was around 1967-1968. It was our first color TV and it came on Saturday morning when the cartoons were on. I was totally mesmerized! I had never seen a color TV before. I also see a seashell vase that my uncle brought us back from the exotic and ever so far away state of Florida!
I love to look at the objects in the background of photos. My scrapbooking buddies are always trying to get me to "crop out" objects in the background of my photos, but I usually won't. I want Yngwie to look at the photos when he is middle aged and laugh about our decor!
