Time Warp Tuesday: Summer of '64

Thank you, Juggling Jenn, for Time Warp Tuesday!

Here is the beautiful little book "I" (meaning my mother) made for my grandma.



My hat was easy to make.  (Just follow the first 4 steps of the Curious George Boat instructions.)


I remember the train ride was very hot.  What's in that giant box?  I think it might have been a girl-sized doll!


I still have the dolls and their dresses.  I loved all the hair off the dolls' heads so they have to wear wigs now!  The dolls will make a visit to next week's Time Warp.


The tall flowers in my aunt's backyard made me feel like Alice in Wonderland.

So. Darn. Cute.

And now it's obvious to me which of your boys looks just like you. :-)
