Ma mère

Kathering Korene La Brue
2½ yrs.  1919

I've always loved this picture of my mother when she was only 2½ years old. When I was that age I hardly had any hair at all. She had those beautiful, long, chestnut curls! Life's just not always fair. Her father was in his 60's when she was born and when all the other girls were having their hair bobbed, he wanted her to keep her long curls. Finally, when she started Jr. High, in 1929, he let her get it cut.
This is her mother.
Katherine Willamina DeWalt LaBrue, age 13 - 1888
Happy Mother's Day

I see why you love these pictures of your mom so much. What a gorgeous little girl she was! And her mother too. The 1920's are my favorite time period and your mom is the perfect image of a 1920's beauty. Vanna

Oh how precious are your photos of your Mom. The pictures of her show she was a beautiful girl. Also a lovely photo of her mother. I have similar photos of my MIL on a post I did showing her quilts. I love your post.

Priscilla I think the white matelasse and linen sound wonderful! Especially here in the dark Northwest. So light and fresh! When you finish them I want to see! Pleeeaaasseee??
Have you ever seen a knole sofa here? I looked for YEARS to find mine and one finally turned up at Pacific Gallery. I kept chattering to them about how happy I was to find one...I think they thought I was a complete nutter lol! Which when it comes ot antiques...I am! *winks* Vanna

What precious photos of your mom through the years. I think old photos are such a joy.
Sorry I'm late arriving to these posts. My Blogger notification doesn't seem to be working for yours and several other blogs that I have on my Favorites List as well as the Blog Roll on my sidebar. New posts are not popping up. I'll need to check back often for new posts. Hope they get his fixed soon.
Have a great week. ~ Sarah
