Deanna's (Timeless Things) Birthday Bash Baby Photos

My friend Deanna from 'Timeless Things' is having a 2-day birthday bash celebrating her 46th birthday. She invited us to come join in the fun! The first day we are suppose to post 3 or 4 pictures of ourselves when we were babies and tell something about them. This first picture was taken in front of my granny's house when I was around a year old. Mama had put one of Granny's quilts down on the ground for me to play on and gave me a big plastic rose to play with. I wonder what I was thinking as I was looking at it so intensely! Was I thinking that one day I would be a real 'Southern Rose'?
The song that I have playing is called 'Delta Dawn'. I remeber singing it all of the time when I was little. My mom bought me a little record player and I would play this song over and over. I only remember 2 records (45's) that I had back then. The other one was called "Cotten Fields Back Home"

This picture showed my little tomboy side. I look so much like my little boy Garrett here. I was sitting on mama and daddy's car under the shade tree. Look at the bottom of my feet! So dirty! I loved to play outside.

Who said that you can't be a tomboy and get your hair all curled up too? Mama always loved to put sponge rollers in my hair. Sometimes she would do pinwheels and just put bobby pins in them. I remember how she would criss-cross the pins to make them stay. My hair was as straight as a board. Not when she got finished with it! I sure wasn't too modest, walking around with my shirt off! I looked like I was about ready to fight somebody!

This has to be my favorite one of all. If my hair would have been black, I would have looked like a china doll.
Thanks for inviting us, Deanna.
I loved seeing your baby pictures and also Mr. Timeless Things'. You were such a little doll. He was adorable too.
I hope that you have a very 'Happy Birthday' and we will see you tomorrow at the Movie Star Party!
Get ready to party!!!

Your baby pics are just too cute!! What a precious baby you were! I, too, had the dreaded sponge rollers & pin curls with bobby pins at times! I just had to giggle at that sweet pic of you "shirtless"!! Too adorable for words!

Hi HONEY!!! Oh you were an adorable little Southern Baby Girl!! I think you were looking at that rose knowing that someday you would be a true Southern Rose...!!!

Looking at your pics brought a song to my mind.....you got the cutest little baby face....you were beautiful then and even more beautiful now!!
I have always seen a lot of you in Garrett. He also has your tender, caring and loving heart. Well, he is a lot like you.

You sure were a cute and spunky looking little girl! My Mom used to roll my hair in sponge rollers at night for special occasions, like school pictures. I had really long hair so it would only curl the ends. I liked to do tomboy stuff too. We lived near the woods when I was young and would climb trees and hang out there for hours.

I can't wait to see you all dolled up with squeaky clean feet tomorrow!

Hi Sweet Friend,
Your baby pics are darling. You were so cute and now so pretty!! I love the shirtless pic. I have one like that at about 2 also. I have to laugh as I too had the sponge rollers and bobbie pins doubled to stay in. My hair was so thick that I had curls for days from those bobbie pins. Your pic sitting on the quilt with the rose is beautiful. It looks like a victorian style pic. That one would be gorgeous painted with roses in an art piece.

I so enjoyed your post before this one using Lucy and Rickie to tell your story getting ready for the party. They are my favorites and you did such a creative job using the pics. I loved it.

Thank you for having me to celebrate with Deanna's birthday bash. It was fun.

Have a great 4th of July weekend, with health, happiness and love.
Hugs, Celestina Marie
