I know the picture says September of l963, but it was taken at Easter that year. No way would I be dolled up from head-to-toe at any other time of year. I was 7. An Easter outfit always included a hat or hair doodad and let’s not forget the corsage. My Mom always got a gardenia corsage as that was her favorite flower. Today, whenever I smell gardenia anything, it makes me think of my Mom and those corsages. A short trip down memory lane. And now for an Easter lily, which is what they were always called back then.
May your Easter Sunday be a beautiful one filled to the brim with happiness and memory making moments. XO, Margie

  3. OMG!! You were soooo adorable!! When I saw your Easter pic, it brought back such memories of my own, especially the prickly crinoline slips on those hot southern Sundays! This post was a real treat!!

  4. Your photo has made my day. So sweet. Your hair was divine! I was 9 that Easter and I’m sure I was sporting an Easter hat my mom had made and a very similar outfit.

Thank you for letting me know you've been here!
