Pink Saturday: Precious Pink Sweater

Pink Saturday is a special day in blogland. You can see what all the fun is about and join in if you want to. Check it out right here on this blog:
You'll be glad you did!

This picture takes me back to 1954, when Olin Mills photographed at least half the children in America. (I really don't know if that is a fact or not, but it might be.) My mother saw fit to go there for a portrait of her darling daughter, Faith (me). It is not really a color picture, it's just been tinted to look like a color picture. Nonetheless, I do have on a precious PINK sweater, and I'm sure my cheeks really were a rosy PINK.


I am so happy when I look at this picture of myself. It does my heart good to see that my grandchildren favor me a little. They like to see Grandma when she was a little girl, too.


It seems the older I get, the more I feel like that little girl again, happy and carefree. It's a feeling I like to call, "In The PINK." Life is always full of promise, no matter how many years you have already lived, four or fifty-seven.

Have A Happy Pink Saturday!

Happy Pink Saturday, Faith.

My mother has pictures of me like that, too. It is so nice to have them as treasures.

You made me have to stop and think about my age. Is that a sign?

How cute are you! :-) I love that tinted look. Now in today's world, people purposely use photoshop to get that great soft look. Here's to living "in the pink!"

Have a great weekend!

I think that wins for my favorite PINK Saturday post. I have a picture like that of my hubby when he was little. And I just love it. I wish you could take new pictures and make them old like that now. Happy PINK Saturday!!!! Wendy

What a lovely picture of you! You look so cute and so happy and i'm glad it makes you smile...so it should!

Good for you for feeling younger and happier as the years pass. You know, we're ONLY as old as we feel. I like to feel that way too. Sometimes we just age "gracefully" on the outside, the inside doesn't have to right?

Have a love weekend. Enjoy.

I am one of the few who was NOT photographed by Olin Mills, so I don't have something like this. (sigh)

Happy Pink Saturday! Come visit.

Happy Pink Saturday!

Such a sweet PINK POST ! I loved it.
Sorry to be late but...so many PINKS and not nearly enuf time!!
Oh, I remember Olan Mills so well. I have lots of photos of my kids taken by them.
My grandkids love to see MEMAW as a little or young girl, too. They always say, "that looks just like mommy" so that means BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER and I look alike. I know for a fact, tho, that I was NEVER as pretty as SHE is!!!!!!!
