Happy Birthday to Me!

The Pixie haircut was popular in 1961...when I was 5.

How many does that make me today? hmmm? There might be a prize involved...

When I found this picture in the photo album I had thoughts of my Grama, who departed this world 9 years ago and who I miss every day. She made the fabulous book this picture has been in all these years. All of the pictures are labeled with cute captions and the dates they were taken. A lot of the tape is yellow and brittle and the front cover has separated itself from the rest of the book but it is still one of my prized possessions.

My Grama taught me how to do so many things. She was a great role-model and a good person. Thanks to her I can sew, knit, crochet and cook a pretty good meal.

This forum gives me the outlet I lost when she passed. I can do "show and tell" to all of you and it makes my effort more rewarding knowing someone besides me sees the results.

Thank you very much.

Now let's have some cake!

Happy birthday, and...you're only as old as you feel. In my case, I'm about 22. :)

Happy 51st birthday for today, Ally B! Thanks for the kind comment on my blog, and yes, we are indeed both Virgos, though I am one whole year older than you!

I had a lovely grandma as well, who was a crocheter, and she crocheted me a comfort blanket which I kept until I was in my teens - it had by then become a mass of tangled fibres!

Hope you have a lovely day!

Happy Birthday to You! You're only one year behind me!

Your post brought back memories of my grammie, too. She taught me how to knit, crochet, and even make fudge turn out just right every time with NO recipe! Got that "soft ball stage" down pat!!

Happy Birthday Momma, funny the pixie hair cut hum sort of resembles your hair cut now don't you think?!?? I think that you look only about 20 years older today than you look in that picture so I guess that makes you 29!!! You are great happy birthday I hope it was better than you thought it would be. Happy shopping.
Love You,
Rena
