This is Christmas Day in the mid-70's outside my family home in Glen Iris, Melbourne. I particularly remember this Christmas as it was the first time I felt really grown up. I felt so pretty in my floral dress and I had such lovely strappy sandals as well.
These are two of my Aunts on the left and my wonderful Grandma on the right. Looking closely at this photo I have realised that my family all had pretty good pins! I love the fact that my Dads idea of dressing up for Christmas meant a very tiny pair of belted denim shorts. Go Dad!
This post has reminded me of something I have been wanting to ask all you wonderful Bloggers. I am looking for a Christmas photo to enlarge for my Christmas window display at CHALK. I am after a family photo set in the 60's or 70's (even 80's) showing a typical Christmas scene. If you have one in your albums, and are willing, I would love to see them in the hope of choosing 2 for our window display.
Please email them to email@example.com
Have a great weekend - maybe drop in and visit me at the shop on Saturday and brunch in Yarraville...
