vintage lady on beach
This is a different type card for me. I love looking at the vintage sites but have never tried one. BUT, blog surfing I came across a blog Clearly Vintage and while looking came upon this image.
THREW ME BACK TO MY CHILDHOOD!
This picture has to be my Grandmother's much younger sister, Aunt Laura !! as a child, Aunt Laura was always impeccably dressed and always had the most perfect manners. It was as though my dear Grandmother was always trying to "please" Aunt Laura. As a very young child, my Grandmother and her sisters would stay at a place on the boardwalk of Ocean City. When I saw this picture, I stopped dead in my tracks! I could actually see her sitting on the beach, with her fashion magazine (I can even remember a dress she wore that was very close to these colors) and she was always completely dressed on the beach. (She was also stick thin and always commented about my weight, even as a young girl I was "chunky"...oops, that's a story for another day) LOL I added the pearls at the top of the card because when Aunt Laura looks up from her magazine.....you know she will be wearing her pearls !!
This image was colored with copics! Anyone else have an "Aunt Laura"....
lots of love,
