Best wishes for a very mid-century Christmas

Wishing you and yours
all things biomorphic and beautiful
this Christmas.

My dad, mom, brother and me in saddle oxfords, c. 1955,
with my first "walking doll"...a Saucy Walker.
The baton came with a pair of white leather majorette
boots that must be somewhere under the tree.


  1. Have a very Merry Christmas! I have so enjoyed your 12 Days of Christmas. Every time I read your blog I think "this is MY life". I'm wondering if we are related. :) Do you remember "angel hair"?

  2. @Krazy4Mod: Yes, angel hair! Remember being told not to touch it? We always had one of those plastic gumdrop trees with angel hair all around the base of it. I even remember how happy the adults were when the non-irritating kind came out...which makes you wonder why they kept using the old kind if it made their hands itch...LOL

    I'm glad you're enjoying my posts! I hope you have a great Christmas and keep reading in the New Year. :)

  3. What a beautiful family portrait. Merry Christmas!
