And an Old Fashioned Pastime
I have started a jigsaw puzzle, which is something more families probably did in the 1950's, than today. I'm also studying the formal gowns, designed by Charles James in the 1950's. Decades may pass by the time I finish this puzzle, (with my short attention span) so these gowns may be back in style when I'm done! At the very least, my slow progress should give me lots of time to absorb and appreciate the glamorous hair and gown styles of the 1950's!
57 Celebrations of the Fifties!
April 9, 2014...My BYB!
I don't remember the 1950's, since they ended when I was 2. But since I turned 57 today and this is my BYB (Birth Year Birthday) I'm going to just appreciate the flavor of 1957! My goal is to celebrate in at least 57 simple ways throughout the year! I will dabble in the fashion, the foods, the music and the culture of those times...just for the fun of it!
