HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAMA

22 July 2012

My beautiful mummy turns 70 today... SEVENTY!  I love looking at black and white photos of her from the 40s/ 50s/ 60s and here are some of my favourites.

aged 16 in a top she made in Domestic Science class (gingham was very popular), 1958

in a peach flared dress, 1959

who wears short shorts?!  Mummy in her modelling days (the retro catwalk kind; showing how to take off a swing coat and display the lining, how to walk with an umbrella etc), 1959

wearing capri pants and ballet flats on a hiking holiday with friends in Yorkshire, 1960

in a (daring at the time) bikini, 1960

wearing a hair ribbon and checked pencil skirt, 1962

on her (first...) wedding day, wearing a dress my Grandma made without a sewing machine, 1963

Don't they make you want to develop films and actually print photos?
