Flashback Friday...


This is my Mum at two and a half years of age. I love this photo. Believe it or not my Mum has almost dead straight hair.

I imagine she spent the night before in rags to make those gorgeous curls. I am amazed they managed to get her to smile for the photo as I imagine she would not have slept too well!

I haven't been blogging at all this week as I have been unable to access a computer. I will be back next week. Thanks for all your comments, I'll come and say hi soon I promise. Don't forget to leave a comment if you want to take part in the giveaway on the "This is" post. There is still time.

See you Sunday.
Have a great week-end everyone!

I can see the similarity between that photo and the little cutie on the left hand side. I adore those old portraits.

Very cute. I remember my grandmother putting my hair in rags quite a bit when I was little they weren't too uncomfortable if they were put in starting a little lower down from the scalp and if not wound too tightly! I looked like 'Goldie Locks' I had very blonde hair once upon a time. Unfortunately I don't know where most of the photos from my childhood have gone! It didn't bother me for some time but looking at your lovely pictures makes me feel quite nostalgic and a little sad that I've lost my photos. I'd better print out some of the billions of photos of my children that are sitting on the computer just in case!

how cute she is!!! I know how it feels to have dead straight hair... I used to put it in sponge curlers everyday... now I am too lazy.
