(I love this chiffon dress!)
A short walk down memory lane...
I was born in a little town near a lake in western Montana. I was the only one in the hospital nursery that day, and my mom always says that we carved our initials in the wall.
One of my most memorable gifts was a rubiks cube key chain. (5th grade.)
I loved my "buckle back" jeans. I was jealous of all of my friends who had braces and retainers, so I used to mold tin foil to my front teeth and gum to the roof of my mouth so that I could sound cool. I took piano lessons and hated to practice. I lived for art class. The only present I usually asked for each year was pencils and sketch books. I loved lasagna and chocolate cake.
I had a blue sparkle banana seat bike. Oh, I wish I still had it. The seat looked just like the top of those shoes in the photo above. I would roller skate for hours in my driveway while I listened to my boom box. I was really good at figure eights. I dressed as Princess Leia from Star Wars for Halloween in second grade.
I was obsessed with creating miniatures for my doll house. I never "played" with the dollhouse, but I wallpapered the rooms, made "bead" ornaments for a miniature Christmas tree, and wrapped tiny presents to go under it. I also cut up old wash cloths to make a bath mat and towels for the bathroom. I used a real toilet paper roll to make a tiny one and then cut half inch strips of real toilet paper to wrap around the little cardboard roll.
I wore gauchos and feather clips in my hair.
A true...70's girl!
