Happy REDnesday everyone!
WOW, I can't believe it is the first of November already! Do you remember the excitement you felt as a child when the Christmas catalogs would arrive about this time of year. I can remember looking at it over and over, carefully marking the pages with the items on my Christmas wish list. Oh it seemed like Christmas would never arrive!
Last week I was skimming Pinterest and found this sweet page from the 1963 Sears Christmas Catalog.
It brought back such a flood of memories because not only do I remember this ad but I remember having a cowgirl outfit almost identical to the red and black one in the ad. What is really amazing, is that a few days after seeing this ad, a small package arrived from my Aunt containing a number of old family pictures including this one!
That's me, front and center along with my two older sisters behind me and my cousins on either side. I couldn't believe the uncanny timing of this package's arrival. The weird thing is, I have no idea where this picture was taken and I don't ever remember seeing this picture before but I am so happy to have it.
