My Sister - My Friend

Not too long ago I was at my sister's house when I noticed this lil' Sister Book that I had made her a few years 6 years ago. I picked it up and begin to browse through it - remembering each page as I had so lovingly created it for my dear sister, Sherri.
Then I noticed something I hadn't noticed before...our hairstyles had pretty much stayed the same for all those year! Oh, my heavens...can you believe it?
The photo above is one of my favorite of Sherri and me. We were up in the mountains for a "sister weekend" in January. Now notice our enduring hairstyles ---

Here we are at approximately 3 and 4 years old - me with my lil' pixie and bangs (with a Tony perm) and her with her pretty blonde hair.

And once again..we are in the mountains with our parents here. We are about 6 and 7 years old - me with that lil' pixie and Sherri with her beautiful blonde hair. of us is missing an eye! It's all fun and games until someone gets an eye poked out!
(Then it's hilarious! :D)

This photo was actually taken the morning of my wedding in 1974. We had both just woke up and our dear mother took our picture before the big day. Pixie - without the bangs! - and blonde hair.

This photo was taken at my father's 80th birthday party. You guessed it...blonde hair and a pixie with bangs.

Isn't it funny how in spite of all the many things that change in our lives some things always stay the same? Like the love of family? Or the friendship of a sister?..and the beautiful blonde hair and pixie haircut!
May your memories of the things that have changed and those that have endured time always be pleasant and bring a smile to your face.
denise :D

  1. What a great book! It must've felt good paging through it after all those years. I love the variety of colors/pages and I'm amazed by your jewelry-part dolls!
