Vintage Photo Friday

It's everyone's favorite day -- Vintage Photo Friday!

(like always, you can click on the photo to see it in better detail)

This is another favorite photo of mine -- a picture of my mother's mother (we called her "Mimi"). I love so many things about this photo -- the cute position she's scrunched up in, the ruffles on her dress (and bloomers?), the adorable shoes (I can't tell exactly, but it looks like they lace up somehow), and her face, mainly because this is one of the pictures where it is most pronounced that she and I look alike, as her facial features are very similar to mine when I was about the same age.

I also love the fact that this picture fits perfectly into the little square frame, almost as if she is perched inside a little box. It makes me smile.

What an adorable little girl! Her haircut is the best of vintage girls' hair and those shoes are so amazing!

Thanks for sharing!

Sweeet photo! I suppose it's sometime in the 1920's? Little Mimi looks so happy!
