The next photo is from 1952. I was almost 5 years old and look, I am wearing the same coat, minus the white color and cuffs. My mother certainly got her money's worth from that little coat. I think it still looks cute...especially with the new bonnet and tiny corsage! Of course the shoulder bag really makes the outfit!! My brother is 5 years older then me....gotta love the fedora....he looks like a mini Humphrey Bogart!!
My last photo is of me, my Mom and my brother. I was almost 8 years old for this Easter. I remember this Spring coat very well. It was an unusual color....something like a fuchia/orange. The material was extremely nubby and the collar scratched my neck when it was buttoned up. I loved that purse. It was a clear plastic with pretty flowers painted on. My Easter bonnet was just a little something on the back of my head. I don't remember it. Let's not forget those white gloves...always had these each year...probably the same pair for many years in a row.
I just realized that these Easters were mostly about coats....wish I knew what little dresses were underneath. Of course I wouldn't be able to tell the color anyway. That is weather in NE Ohio!
There you have it....Sandy at Easter when I was little. Wow...heavy memories!
