Flashback Friday

So I'm fairly certain that if my sweet mother were still alive I would NOT be posting today's picture because she would kill strangle murder me for doing so
 but it's one I absolutely love!

This past summer I went through several boxes of old pictures my sister 
had brought me and this was a pic in one of those boxes. 
It's taken in our living room and judging by the furnishings and my mothers hair
 {it took a weekly trip to the hair dresser to have that cool do} 
it appears it was around 1974 or 1975 which means my
 mom and dad were still honeymooners.  

I can honestly say prior to this picture I had never seen my mother wearing 
anything resembling lingerie before so this picture surprised me!
Her face says what mine often does in pictures.....
Why are you taking my picture?
{or perhaps Please stop taking my picture!}.

It's hard to tell but the blob in the bottom right corner
 is a pile of laundry which makes me laugh.

Oh how I wish I knew the story behind this picture!
Maybe I'll ask my dad?
Or maybe I don't want to know? ;)

  2. There are legs at the table? Are you sure that is lingerie? Her hair is done really nice, could she have been getting ready to go out? Just curious?

  3. It looks like there is a person wearing a pink shirt in the bottom left corner.... I agree with Becca.....

  4. I spy the fancy silver coffee pot thing on the table, so I'm going to guess that she was dressed up for something. I don't remember any, but maybe there was a party at our house?

  5. Reading pictures is so fun. Is that an ankle in the lower left corner of the photo?
