TB Thursday - Mom

100 Years Ago Today...



photo taken in 1924, when she was seven

We gave her this restored photo for her 80th birthday.
She said, "I feel like you've given me back my youth!"

Kudos to MacCrae Custom Colour Studio and its magicians
who worked many, many hours with PhotoShop's cloning device
to eliminate the rips caused by a straight pin.

Also, my grandmother had scrawled the date and my mother's age in blue pen on the FRONT of the photo!

The linen dress and matching hat were the height of fashion which my grandfather had brought back from Paris. 


  1. That's a beautiful photo, Barb. (A straight pin? Blue ink on the front of the photo? Eek!)

    Happy Birthday to your beloved and very stylish mother.

    1. The photo's a treasure, for sure!

      She retained her youthful attitude and interest in fashion all of her 94 years. :-)

  2. That age of graceful all-white linen and lace for females... I dream of it, still. This restored image does feel dreamy.

    1. She's posing with flowers from the garden and she was always flower-obsessed. I think if she hadn't been an artist she might have been a florist.


Give a hoot.
