These photos were recently shared by my cousins. They were found in an old suitcase and are now a great treasure. My parents were NOT big picture takers and most of the photos we have are of cars, tractors and visiting guest. I have very few snapshots of our daily life or even holidays. Yes, I credit that with my photo obsession. The first thing I purchased of any real value as a young adult was a Vivitar 35mm film camera. It was $89 and it was my pride and joy. It took great pictures, too.
Back to today's layout...it tells the story of the Cinderella watch with figurine that I wanted the way Ralphie wanted his Red Ryder Shot Gun. My watch was not under the tree. I didn't know Santa had a helper in my Aunt Mary Ann. This is the one gift I remember from childhood. I can't believe it was in these found photos. I am feeling very blessed. :)
