As the Twig is Bent, So Grows the Tree

Here is your humble narrator, age 2. She is dressed (by her mother) for Halloween. Note the skirt. My mother was very fond, in later years, of showing it to anyone who would hold still long enough. It was all of 12 inches long, and my mother never ceased to marvel at how it came to my ankles. I was such a tiny, tiny child.

Anyway, except for the scuffed mary janes, my wardrobe is today, some 50 (very) odd years later, almost identical. I still wear too much jewelry, hangy-downy earrings and maxi skirts. Also, not so much with the do-rags. But basically, this is still me.

Happy Halloween.

Um, yeah. That’s about right. But on you, it looks good.

Usually, that sentiment is a lie, but not this time! Seriously. The only thing that photo is missing is glasses.

I cannot help but wonder about how much those strands of beads would bring today on the vintage costume jewelry market!

Great photo ... thanks for sharing!

But, but you looked so adorable! I think you’ll be fine as long as you didn’t keep the 12-inch skirts. :)
