Ain't She Sweet--Friday Photo Falshback

Okay, I am being brave here. This is me when I was in the 5th grade. Not sure what year but you can figure it out. I graduated from high school in 1977 and I am 50 now. It is too late to figure this out. Don't you just love the cat-eye glasses. Those were hot back then. This was my first pair of glasses. They met their untimely demise later on when they fell in an outhouse toilet in Shaver Lake. Sad day. Do you like the dress? I did. My mom made it for me.
Remember to be nice when you comment.

I think we all look the same when we look back at pictures. The kids today will also laugh at themselves someday when they look back. Thanks for sharing.

Sue said...

I had a pair of those glasses myself...in pink!

PS. Thanks for the gift card! It arrived today, and I am going to have a good time picking something out!!

Audrey said...

You are brave :) I wouldn't even know where to look for a photo of me at that age, though I'm sure my parent have piles of them!
Great post!!

I had a pair of glasses like those -- mine were pink, my favorite color then and now. And I think the picture is very sweet -- that is a fabulous, warm, happy smile!

New glasses in grade five can be devestating. You are smiling so proudly in your photo, I can see they didn't cramp you style one bit. I bet your Mum had alot to do with that. I bet you are alot like your Mum too, and that Daniel loves you as much as you love your Mum. Nice blog. FOund you thru Friday Follow. I'll enjoy coming by often. Rosemary

I love those glasses, I wish that they had that style when I first got mine instead of those thick chunky plastic frames!

I love this picture, and those classes are very cool!! This had to be 1969, because you are 10 years older than me!!

I LOVE the cat-eyed glasses!

Kerri said...

Yup, I'd say 1969-1970. And I DO love the glasses...and the dress. I always wanted to sew...I just don't think I have the patience for it! Have a wonderful day Karen!

Weezer said...

Found you through the over 40s sites. I'm 'a tad' older than you but I sure do remember those days of the glasses and home-made dresses. I had glasses like that but mine were lavender.....and I'm a redhead. Imagine!
Following your blog. Come visit me sometime.

Karen, I totally COVET those glasses. Seriously I think this photo is beyond adorable. I'd really love a pair of specs like that to alternate with. How fun would that be???

LambAround said...

What a cutie pie you were! Personally, I think the glasses are cool :)

Pop some dark shades into those cat-eye frames and I would totally wear them as sunglasses!

Great picture... I love the glasses, I wanted some, but I had good vision so my mom said no!

Personalized Sketches and Sentiments said...

I really thought I commented on your post last week! Oh well...sometimes I can't remember if I am coming or going!

I love your cat glasses...sorry to hear that they got lost in the Loo! I started wearing glasses when I was in 3rd grade, but don't remember getting that style.

Blessings & Aloha!
