I combined two challenges this week, Take A Word with their fun theme of Childhood and Linda's Compendium of Curiosities Challenge 24
Great combination, doncha think?
Can you see the rock candy?
Here, look closer...
This is a picture frame, in case you can't tell, and it HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH CHRISTMAS!!
What a rebel I am!!!
My plan was to put a photo of either me as a little girl or my own girl as a little girl, but alas, I didn't get to that. Besides this little girl from Lisa's Altered Art is much sweeter than either of us.
Not cuter, just sweeter.
Notice the ruler? I found that at a garage sale and it's even carved with the name of a little kid (boy, not girl, but nonetheless, childhood is gender-neutral). Isn't it perfect?
And while I'm at it, I was remembering some of the things my mother used to do to torutre me when I was at her mercy, things like perming my hair, from the age of 6 on, forcing me to watch the Sound of Music, (OK, that was much later, but it still made me mad) and dressing me up like her own little Shirley Temple.
THIS is what I say to her!
Rest her soul.
