I picked up these two vintage bobby pin cards yesterday. Aren't they cute? Sure brings back memories of the 1950s when my mom pin curled my hair. I wore saddle shoes and bobby socks, and tried to dress like the older girls by wearing the circle cut skirts and the button sweater worn backwards with the scarf tied around my neck. And of course we watched and danced to American Bandstand.

My Godmother, Aunt Britt, passed away on Easter Sunday morning. She was 90 and was in ill health for a long while. She was my favorite aunt, Godmother, and my mother's dearest sister.
I love this photo of her that was taken when she was a young woman and nurse. After nursing school, she served in both the Navy and then the Army as a nurse throughout World War II.
I have used this photo of her a couple of times in my fabric wall hangings. The picture belonged to my mother, and has been without a frame since we moved to California, arriving by bus - that is another story. After my cousin, my aunt's youngest daughter, returns home from her funeral, I plan to send this lovely photograph to her.
