|Here's a dress that reminds me |
of my mom, as a teenager.
That's my mom, in the white gloves.
|I'm pretty sure she made the pink and lace dress.|
|My grandma was the lady, beside her, wearing brown.|
|My mom sewed most of her own, teenage clothes.|
|My mom won Queen |
of the Sweetheart Ball
or whatever it was called.
Now for some more things,
inspired by my mom's vintage dress:
|Vintage Velvet Lace Dress|
|Cinderella's Silver Slippers|
|Pink Paisley Brocade Dress|
|1960's Gold Bow Heels|
|Vintage Bohemian Shawl|
|Vintage Custom Made Pumps|

|This was a drawing I did of myself, when I looked into a mirror, in May. It's a blind contour drawing|
that means you can't look down at the paper as you draw.
|This is the final drawing. I left the pencil marks beneath it. |
I sat on the couch with crayons.
I shaded completely from my memory.
When I was finished with the drawing, I looked at it.
I told my husband this is supposed to be a self portrait.
Don't you think it looks like my mom, when she was a teenager?

Then yesterday, I was editing old photos from 2004.
I came across this photo of me,
with my natural hair color.
|I'm at my aunt and uncle's house, holding one of their relatives' little ones.|
Yes, I know, I kind of look like my mom. :)
