1970.....Christmas

I stumbled across this photo and it just made me smile. And the word retro went through my head. There's some classic stuff in that picture - other than me. I decided not to do the classic Christmas stuff because the photo was just too precious not to point out that there's a small black and white portable TV in our living room. I guess you can tell it really didn't dominate our lives, then there's the hi-fi stereo system that has an album playing on it. And that lame fake Christmas tree. It really looks bad. Then there's me in my new pantsuit. Back in the day, girls were not allowed to wear pants to school until then. BUT it had to be pant suits - matching pant suits. Same way for working in an office too. Boy have things changed. There are some feet in the photo that I really can't identify. It's gonna drive me nuts for awhile.

Cosmo Cricket - which is a really old line - but seriously classic. The reindeer stamp is inkadinkado and  prima stars. I got carried away and used some Martha Stewart glitter on my basic grey chipboard alphas.
