A Week of Nana - Day 2

I'm playing along with Cindy from Bug and Pop this week for A Week of Nana...

Today I've decided to show memories from Nana's house and Grandma's house.


This one is my older sister and I on Nana's balcony in Coragulac in about 1976. I must have been two years old and R would have been four.

This one is Nana's balcony again (notice she still has the same outdoor setting and planter). This must have been 1980 (2 extra siblings by this time).
R is wearing a dress up costume for school that my nana made for her.

This one is at Grandma's house...it must have been about 1981 (I'm the one with no front teeth wearing socks and sandals). I do believe that my brother is wearing a Mr Greedy bib...now that's funny!

More nana stuff tomorrow...... I've used up my internet limit for the month so my blogging and reading and commenting is grinding down to an extremely slow speed. I probably won't be leaving many comments over the next few days but I will definitely still be reading!

They are great photos! Love the socks and sandals too!

Watch out Australia, I'm going to be bring socks and sandals back into fashion next year, with a Japanese twist - patterned tabi toe socks (like those worn with a kimono) with Birkenstocks!

Those photos are fantastic. You could do some great collage with some of those.

I know Coragulac! We used to have holidays with friends in Alvie.
Those 1970s photos are great. It seems we all had the same wardrobes back then!
