Oh dear, this trip down memory lane is really good for a laugh!

Here I am, little model at 3 years old


When I went dark auburn (no make-up here)


Closer to natural color


Halloween; this was at work, I wore a leopard catsuit to a party right after work

Beautiful! You hair in the auburn picture is *exactly* how I would love to style my hair every now and then :)

That was when I used to put my hair in a pony tail on top of my head, then set it on the biggest rollers I could find - the size of juice cans. I'd take the pony tail holder off after I had the rollers firmly in place. I had gotten a terrible 'body perm' and, unless straightened out like that, my hair was up above my shoulders. :cool:

My Mom made the red satin quilted skirt for me. It was for a Christmas party in 1969. I loved that skirt! Mom made most of my clothes when I was younger because the tall shops were few and far between, and very expensive.

Jackie - I keep going back to this thread and thinking the same thing. The first childhood picture most closely resembles you as you are now. I think that's a very GOOD thing! You've maintained (or returned to) your natural, youthful appearance. You dog!

I'm beginning to look more and more like my great, great grandfather who was mostly Cherokee and those high cheekbones are killing my youthful appearance. HAH!

Thank you, Nance. :) I would gladly give you some padding for those cheekbones, to fill them out just a bit. I have more than enough to spare! But remember, you will always have a regal, classic appearance, while I will continue to develop my paternal grandmother's bulldog jowls. <sigh>

Well then kudos to your mom! I would have given anything for a skirt like that (in those years)!! I had a short skirt and matching vest made from fabric very similar to that. I got to wear it in our church Christmas pageant.
