I love all the work that TN Chick puts into making the Saturday Photo Hunt such a great event. Photo Hunters were in search of something old-fashioned this week. I found this one to be tough and so I've been really impressed with the entries I've visited already.
I thought for a while about what to choose and settled on this photo of a photo from long long ago.
Photo Hunt -Old-Fashioned
What's old-fashioned about this photo, you ask? Well look at that poofy hair and the collar on that dress. And how about that skinny skinny tie? Honestly though, the reason I picked this photo is because these are my parents and this picture was taken nearly 40 years ago. My parents were about as old-fashioned as they come. (My dad still is; unfortunately my mom died in 2003.) When I got engaged, my mom didn't even think it was proper for Pastormac and me to sit on the same bed together. My dad still let's "ladies go first" and wears a coat and tie to work weekdays and a blazer to work on Saturday. Things like these and too many others to list make them my perfect choice for our "old-fashioned" theme this week.
If you're not rushing off to check out other Photo Hunters, PLEASE! PLEASE! leave a few of your "favorites" in a comment on my son Shorty's birthday post. He would really appreciate it. (So would I!) He just turned six on Thursday and he's pretty amazed that folks are leaving him comments. Also, we have really good news here.
