a 1958 princess
In this fabulous family archive I had to post is my great grandma (QT), my mother in the middle, my grandma (Big) is to the right. Little girls love princess dresses--my Ruby, when she was just barely 1, loved toddling around in a little fairy dress. And when Gera and I sell items at a local, gigantic flea market, there is not one single time that we don't see little girls dressed as fairies or princesses. And almost all of them love to have the princess theme in their rooms.
I love this picture because my mother is an example that princesses were around during the 50s, although this is supposed to be her birthday dress for turning 12 years old.
Of our six maternal generations, the one missing is my great great grandma who was not fond of photos at this time or any time. Of course, Jenn (my daughter) and I weren't even in the stars----yet. I am so grateful that I knew all my grandmas very very very well. I was fortunate to live all of my young life and a great deal of my adult life with them---as written in one of my on-going book chapters, I could be found, most of the time, around their knees or in the depths of their armpits.
