Saturday Snapshots

Does this little piggy go to market?




Me, ages and ages ago. My dad had this enlarged a few weeks ago and gave me a copy. Too bad its in black and white. You can't see my bright red hair! It's pretty well white now! I love the little patent leather shoes. This was at grandma's house and the chair is covered in one of those horrible clear plastic covers. Like Everybody Loves Raymond's mom's couch!




My favorite show of all time!  Watch full episodes HERE

    1. Aw, thanks! I think everyone can identify with someone in Everybody loves Raymond. It's one of the few shows my husband actually laughs out loud at!

    1. It is, Joy. One of my parents favorites and they always tell the story about me and grandma's pig. Wish I had a pair of those shoes now!

    1. Probably could in photoshop, Esme. I'll have to see if my son could do it.

  6. That's adorable. The black and white adds to its charm.

    I'm laughing about the plastic cover on the chair. Horrible! My mom had those on the chairs and the couch back in the early 60s. She had them custom made! I do remember her finally taking them off and letting us kids sit on the actual furniture.

  11. My family didn't do the plastic covers but both sets of grandparents had the crocheted antimacassar's over the arm and back of every lounge & chair in the house!

  12. My neighbors had plastic on their living room furniture and a plastic rug runner from the front door to the kitchen ... I always thought it odd ...

    1. Oh My, Susan, I had forgotten about the runner of plastic at the doors! We had those too! Mom never did the plastic on the furniture but she had the runners.
