Then & Now


That was then...

Cristie with her dolly
her baby buggy
her mother curled her bone straight hair
tennis shoes with stockings cuffed
a sun dress
it's obvious she is well loved
after all someone bothered to take a photo with film


This is now...

sixty years later
Cristie holding her youngest grand baby
Rosie
a real live dolly
that snuggles right in
and is a squishy little darling
it's obvious Rosie is well loved
her little shrug sweater
with a pony and bow crowning her glory

a dream come true

i do believe in dreams

loved this so so much! i love those chunky little legs and arms…can definitely tell you were well fed and well loved by a very young mother doing hard things.
