Mom in her 20's

It has been seven years since my mother died. April 2001. It seems like yesterday but also seems like forever. She was born at home before WWI in Northern California and lived into her 80's. I never knew her as a young woman. She divorced her first husband after my half sisters and brothers were teenagers. Shortly after, she married my dad. I was born a couple of years later when she was nearing 40. (Thanks girasoli for the idea)

Mom - I miss you.

Mom - Wedding
Just married - She smoked until into her 70's

Wonderful post Marta! I love the photos. hugs...


Marta, what beautiful photos. I know what you mean about the rickrack on your dress -- my Mom sewed a lot of my clothes and I loved little touches like that! I can even remember the cedar smell of the drawers on her old wooden Singer sewing machine table. Mom always kept the long, flat spools of rickrack and narrow bands of edging for seams in the deep drawers.....

Wonderful post!

My mom made a dress with rickrack for me too. I need to dig out some old photos sometime...


Oh Marta, what a lovely celebration of your Mom!

Marta, these are wonderful photos. I had a talented sewing mom too and she always made these dresses for me and my sister and people kept thinking we were twins which we weren't! Memories and old photos are beautiful to have. Thanks so much for sharing.
