Easter Dresses

I decided to join Eileen and some other bloggers in sharing pics of Easter past. Way past. Mom always went all out on dressing us up at Easter, I don't think I appreciated it a whole lot at the time, but I'd wear any frilly thing for a few hours for a basket of candy. I remember the teachers at school always getting after me to tuck in my blouse and stop rolling up my sleeves (and "sit up straight!"), but I really liked being comfortable, hated being dressed up. I'm the little one in front. Unfortunately my oldest sister, Cathy, died a few years ago of breast cancer & my other sister has had some problems & separated herself from the family. I have a lot of great memories of growing up, though, so for the most part it makes me happy to see the old pictures rather than sad.
I wish the picture was in color, I'd like to know what color Cathy's dress was, it looks really pretty. Don't you love those saddle shoes?

I love old postcards, when I find a box full of them at an antique shop whoever is with me pretty much has to drag me away after a while. The artwork is so great on this one. And the sentiment is sincere, I hope you all have a wonderful Easter!

And the frilly dresses.. and yes.. one thing I did notice was the saddle shoes. So much fun! Thank you for joining in the Easter Parade and sharing with us your memories. Love the old cards too.

You sure had on a very special dress and I'm sure this photo is extra special since your Sis is no long with you. I loved wearing saddle shoes...the 50's were my favorite time.
