Funky Foto Flashback - Premier!

Guess what I got a wild hair to do? My own meme. You can thank the Un-Mom and Sprite's Keeper bc they showed me how much fun meme's can be.

So here's the lo down on Funky Foto Flashback: Every Thursday post any vintage photo that's in your possession and that's it! If you want to write a caption, that's better. If you want to write the story behind the photo, that's EVEN better!

Here's my retro photo - my mom, circa 1954? I love this photo - its so mysterious. I know that's my mom - but if I didn't know that, I would be drawn to this photo. Who is that little girl? Where is that mask from? What does it represent? Why is she in the middle of that field? Where did she get those shoes?

To me, it looks like the cover of a coming of age novel.

Let's see your retro photos...

Snag this button from the sidebar (thank you keely for breaking it down like i were an eight year old - ok as if i were a five year old, "your mom and dad gave you $10 to run a lemonade stand...)

Copy and paste the code in the post.
Show me some love and comment.

Yes, that's me! Probably around 1953 (3 or 4 years old) standing in the field between my parents and and my grandparents houses. I loved that mask. It was grocery store bag printed with a witch doctor face. All you youngsters log onto the oldies song websites and noodle around for a while. I bet you'll find what song was popular and why I'm wearing that bag on my head.

Peace, love and happiness,

Why, oh why, is your Mom hiding such a gorgeous face behind a mask!

Oooh, cool meme! I'm going to dig up a good one for next week!

That picture is great, you should frame that one! You're right, it is mysterious... I love it!

Cid said...

This is a very cool idea. I need a scanner because I have a lot of old photos.

That is a great photo. I hope you have one of her where we can see her face.
