Wednesdays With My Mom And New Stuff in the Shop.

This photo was taken just before baby no. 3... June, was born. Mom and Dad are sitting in front of their duplex in CA.

I love that my dad enjoyed experimenting with the nice camera my parents bought just before their marriage. Because of that purchase, we have this legacy of photos. And thanks to our wonderful SIL, we have them beautifully organized. Cindy, we could never thank you enough!
I just had to scan this close up of Andy in the stroller, and adorable little Diana following behind on her tricycle. : )
Well........we tried to make it to the theatre last week, but once we arrived, my mom was not feeling well enough to stay. So we went to my place for awhile, and then ended up coming back to her place to watch Bonanza.
Have I told you yet that my mom has a crush on the "Dad" of Bonanza? What was his name...was it Loren Green? Anyway, she has a crush on him and John Wayne. Too cute!!

Your Mom looked beautiful walking her children, isn't so nice that back then just to go for a walk you got all dressed up??? I remember my Mom always wearing a dress if she went somewhere, and a slip!!!!

tell Mom hi for me, I always loved Little Joe!!!!
There is a Museum out in Az like near Maricopa, Az , that was a home of John Wayne it is now a museum of sorts, he at one time owned 1, 000's of acres out here, if ever out here be sure to bring Mom to the John Wayne Museum, also in lake Tahoe are is the bonanza house, I have forgotten the name of their house!!! darn it!!

Hey girl,

I just always love seeing the pictures of your Mom. It is so cute with Andy in the stroller and Diana on her tricycle. A perfect little outing.

Too bad your Mom didn't feel well enough for the theater. Hope she is doing better.

I LOVE your new items. Too CUTE!

Just thought you'd like to know that your blog has inspired me to scan and post some of my own old family photos! Thanks!

I love that your mother has a crush on Loren Green. Does her cuteness never end! Your shop pieces are just lovely. Such elegant taste you have. Again, your Wednesday photos are a treasure to so many. Thank you for sharing them. Elizabeth

Your photos are such a blessing to you and your family I am sure...

Ben Now, I thought Little Joe(Michael Landon) was dreamy!

Still love Bonanza!!

Hi ML.
So glad to hear from you and glad you loved the angel. She is the prettiest thing I've seen in a long time. She was all alone on the shelf and I was thrilled. Radiant I say. I will take a pic of where I put her and let everyone see. She's a beauty, and yes I love Ross. Great store. My kind of store. The pics of your family are beautiful. Your Moma would be so happy to see them I am sure. How is she doing in her new home? How are you doing having her there? Remember one day at a time. Take care sweetie. Country Hugs, Sherry

Small House said...

Just catching up on all the blogging I missed. Enjoyed your past posts so much! Love what you have added to your store.

And always so touched by how tender and cute you are to your mom.
Have a great day.

Lot of cute stuff. Your Mom is so blessed to have you, and thanks for the bookmark tutorial. What great gifts. Jackie

Angie said...

That first picture is just wonderful. Black and white photos are so darn charming! Your mom's hairdo reminds me of my Gram's, too. They look alot alike! Thank you for sharing such great memories!

Hugs ~ Angie

Thanks for sharing these wonderful old photos. Our family only has a few photos from the early years of my parents lives together.
Hope your Mom is feeling better. I kinda had a crush on Michael Landon rather than Loren Greene!!!

I could lose myself in your last photo. I think of your home and it's vignettes as ML's Wonderland..I bet it would give Alice's a run for its money! Glad your back.

And forgot to mention the vintage Mom shots! Always nostalgic for me!

Michelle@Fromhousetohome said...

I just love old photos! Are you going to frame them for your house? I am loving those nest letters and all your "goofy" projects. They are so fun, love it!

I love those pictures. My dad was a photography buff, and actually had a darkroom setup in their bathroom. I have some of those photos, but they aren't organized. Your SIL is a blessing to do that.

I also wanted to let you know that the next "Cloche Party" is scheduled for the 11th of Sept. for the Fall season. Grab the button on my sidebar to remind you and to let all your friends know. See you there. Hugs, Marty
