Simple Pleasures

Good Morning All,
I am joining in over at Dayle's place at A Collection of This and That and her Thursday meme of Simple Pleasures. I can't think of a more simpler time than this. Me and my childhood friend in her front yard with her doll, Janie. My parent's house sits on the adjacent lot behind the white house you see in the background. Summer meant playing in the yard, going barefoot, sundresses. Life was good and simple. The sidewalk we are on, still remains in my hometown. I still reside here today. Have a great Thursday! By the way, I am on the left :)


  1. Susan looks so proud! Don't you wish you had those cool red chairs!? I wish I had a picture like that of Connie and me. I do have one of myself with your kids uncle, we are riding our stick horses and have our cowboy hats on. It was such a great place to grow up!

  2. I love old pictures that remind of too of a simpler time. I have to laugh a bit because I remember thinking that I could hardly wait to grow up and not have anyone tell me what to do. Ha! How little I knew. lol
    Have a great day,

  3. Oh, how lovely. I LOVE old photos like that. And how neat that you still live in your hometown.

    My daughter recently went to visit friends who live about 20 minutes from my old hometown. She took photos of my old house, old church, etc. They actually look much the same as they did when I lived there in the 70's.

    Thank you for sharing your lovely simple pleasure.

  4. how sweet is this photo!!! i remember those huge dolls. some of them *walked* too. yes, summer days of childhood can have wonderfully, simple good memories.


  5. Robin~ How cute is that?? My best childhood friend is Kathy (she lives in Atlanta now). Kathy's sister Judy had a doll like that. We used to play with it all of the time. I had such a fabulous childhood. I love going down memory lane. I'm guessing that your childhood was very special too. Wish I knew you back then!!

  6. Hello Robin! I love old photo's and this one is so sweet. Look at you in your little sundress and bare feet...reminds me of me back in the 50's and 60's! Oh how things have changed from that quiet simple life we once knew. I bet seeing that brought back a lot of wonderful memories for you...those are the good things in life aren't they! Have a wonderful day...Maura :)

  7. HI Robin! Oh, you cute little thing. I had a doll just like that and you've brought back some sweet memories to me today. I don't think kids play outside as much as we did.
    Thanks for popping in to see my Roosters.
    Be a sweetie,

  12. Cute Blog! I've been snooping around and love all your things! :) I need to get back into blogging....been away for a few's so fun and entertaining. Happy Summer from Houston, TX!

  13. Ah, it was a much simpler time then, wasn't it? No kids running around with cell phones when they barely know how to drive. No Facebook or Twitter. Just a simpler time.

  14. What an adorable photo. You brought back a lot of great memories. laurie

  15. Thanks for all the sweet comments. I forgot to mention the year was probably around 1961.

  16. I love your picture. Old photos are great. You reminded me about the big doll that I used to have. I'd dress it up in my old clothes, some of which my mom had made me.
