Vintage Modeling

In honor of  June brides everywhere,  I have these new found photos of my mother in her modeling years.  These photos were taken probably in 1960.  Her hair was naturally black, but she had her hair dyed blonde  in these photos.  I think they are very stunning indeed!  The photographer seemed to be ahead of his time.

These are GORGEOUS, Michele! Love them all! My middle daughter, who wants to be a professional photographer, LOVES them! They really are ahead of their time! My parents were married in 1960, too...

Your package was FINALLY sent off on Thursday--sorry it took so long! Things are so crazy here right now!

Hoping you're having a wonderful weekend, my friend!

Hi Michele. The photos of your mom are wonderful!! I have pictures of my mother when my parents got married in the mid 1960's. I love the quality of the old photos and I love that we can re-create that now with the photo sites that are available. Thanks for sharing them!! : )

What gorgeous photos Michele! A real treasure trove of your beautiful mom to admire for now and pass onto your children. Thanks for sharing them :)
You asked about the cuttlebug cutting fabric. The metal Spellbinder dies cut fabric and I think that any metal one will like the Dienamics and Cherry Lynns would also. I only have a few Spellbinders and they do cut it. Sometimes there are a few little spots that I will have to finish off with the scissors. If you have any questions email me at dustydavi@yahoo.com
