    1. Thanks Sally - we were all pretty cute back then! My big sis and I are only 15 months apart. Here we're wearing plaid skirts our Mom made for us.

    1. Mom sewed most of our clothes, often from hand-me-downs from friends. And we dressed alike often since it was easier to make two the same (often similar sizes, too), into our early teens.
      Oh, and did you notice the rag curlers? I had very curly hair and these made big fat ringlets. Thanks for stopping by, Loretta.
