Je m'en souviens - Part 5

Part 5 in my series comes from a slide.  It's so perfect that my mom is chatting to someone... my dad is infamous (and sometimes annoying) with his candid shots but this time, he captured the moment, I'm sure.  Kodak may no longer make Kodachrome slides but since vintage is a recurring theme here, why not branch out into vintage technology?  

While the dress has no label, when I rolled up one of my sleeves, the above trim was a dead giveaway.  I immediately recognized it from years of having fouillé-ed (dug around) in my mom's sewing kit.  There is a high chance that she made the dress or had it custom-made.  Either way, I may not have memories of her wearing it, but the slide combined with wearing the garment itself means I get keep her with me, present in my daily going-abouts.  

This may be all for these kinds of posts, or not, but the project itself ends here.  I hope you have enjoyed this more detailed glance into who I am - it couldn't have been done without my Tim, photographer (here and above photos) and Pat's beautiful garden.  I can't end this without saying that I did not appreciate my mom's style enough while I could tell her such things but as my dad would say about kids when they're younger, my brain wasn't totally developed.  Sometimes you just don't know what is special around you, until you look from a different view. 

Love you, mom.  And thank you.
