    I thought I was the only one who wore “freaky” hats in the 50’s and 60’s. Thanks for the memories Beth, you are the BEST!

  2. Linda Taylor says:

    I love, love, LOVE the tux on you. I don’t know that I could pull it off. But, wow, on you it looks divine and oh so feminine!

    The pineapple casserole sounds intriguing. I would love to have the recipe.

    Dear Beth, I’ve been a fan of yours for so long but never left a comment but I just had to today! The things you’ve said of your own mother have always resonated deeply with me and I had to laugh at your throwback pics. We had the same couch (or as my mom would say, davenport), the same reclaimed brick fireplace, and that exact white coffee carafe. The picture in front of the fireplace could be my sister!! Thanks for the stroll down memory lane and your holiday outfit ideas.

    Beth, you’re truly a gifted writer. Enjoy your keen wit so much, as well! Appreciate tagging along on your trip down memory lane today. Can spot the fashionable lady-in-the-making in one of the pictures! So sweet. Thanks for delighting us day after day! Love and prayers to you and your family~

    Fun memories. I remember your pairing of the flannel buffalo check shirt with the velvet skirt–I love it. That plaid final outfit is cracking me up–but I remember styles just like that back in the day. Here’s to the holidays…I think we all have mom memories of favorite dishes and moments. Gotta’ love ’em.

    I love the way you’ve styled that tie with the tuxedo jacket!
    I was born in Omaha, and moved to California when I was 4, so I don’t remember much about the holiday’s there.I always looked forward to getting something special from Brandeis that my aunt always sent out to California.

    Oh that Christian tree. I have a pic of myself with the same looking tree. Icles and all and the branches turned upward. What memories this brings. Blessed holidays.

    I love this blog.
    I am firm believer that any age and size can be stylist.
    Not sure how I found you but will continue to follow.
