Thursday Thirteen #48 I know you want a pair of Daisy pants

I was scanning in some pictures and the scanner quit working:( so I tried taking

pictures of pictures and they did not do so well...does any one have some

pointers?.... I do stand directly over them, I tried Indoor light, outdoor, flash ,no flash...

3.A freshman in HS -- my mom loved my hair that way:(



4.My brother and I--- my junior year---- in the musical Oklahoma--- he was the star*

--I was a dancer and in the chorus

5 My senior picture... I know just a little too Cute


6.Fresh in college as a freshman don't you wish you had that cowl neck sweater?

8.Skiing in Utah--- I look so skilled --I left out the one on my backside:(

9.I Cut out the old boyfriend he was so funny but kind of the could be a bad boy type:)

10.Right around the time I fell in love w/ my Hubby-- Life was as rosy as my sweater

That's a nice walk through the years ! I like your new haircut !
I always do pictures of pictures then sharpen and correct the colors with Picasa. It comes out better than with a scan. Just download Picasa, it's free.

One gorgeous smile!! I love your very first one, blurry childhood or not!! And the ski trip...and then the last one.

Happy birthday!!

My 13 movie stills is shared for T-13 this week. Come by if you can.

Always a beautiful smile! Aside from photographing the photos, I don't know what to suggest. If you have a lot of negatives, you could use scancafe dot com. They do an excellent job of converting to digital and are affordable. Good luck.

Happy Birthday, I just love those 70's and 80's styles. Any special plans for the week?

Brenda ND said...

They came out pretty good. Isn't it funny how we remember past events by the clothes we were wearing. Hot good we thought we looked when it doesn't always seem that way now? I do love the daisy pants. They bring back memories.

Kat said...

Hey--another birthday! Thanks for coming by my blog and wishing my daughter a great birthday.

I love the photos. Sometimes I wonder what we were thinking with some of our hair and clothing choices!

And I am *not* saying that your pictures look like these...but you have to check out this blog with the list of "fab" Olan Mills pictures: http://listoftheday.blogspot.com/2007/09/great-olan-mills-photos.html

Don't worry... we're not gonna forget your birthday this year. These are some nice pictures :) You can definitely tell it's you through them all.

Harris Channing said...

Fun pics! I had a cowl neck sweater and the circus shirt...but dang where did you get those daisy pants? I did have plaid Brady Bunch pants though!

Love the new cut. Very cute.

Have a great day.

Lisa said...

I love the old pictures. I am am wishing I had some daisy pants right now!

Thanks for stopping by...Happy TT!

Lori said...

Happy Birthday!

The photo memories was a great idea for a TT. And isn't it funny how we can identify the century by the clothing? ;-)

Thanks for stopping by!

Sue said...

These are great! Love your new do' and I'd still wear the daisy pants lol!

Happy TT

Darla said...

Happy birthday! I didn't have daisy pants, though I'd probably have loved them. I did, however, have that hairstyle in #10. :)

Alice Audrey said...

I had one of the sweaters too. OK, maybe a couple of them.

pjazzypar said...

I love your hairdo in the final snapshot. What a wonderful transformation. Happy TT and thanks for visiting me.

Denise Patrick said...

Nice pictures. You really look very different in the last one compared to all the rest.

We must be close in age. I never had a pair of daisy pants, but I had a daisy dress when I was about the same age as you in the daisy pants picture.

Thanks for visiting my TT!

WillThink4Wine said...

Love your new do! I didn't have the Daisy pants, but I do recall quite a few mad plaids! Happy Birthday!

Denise Patrick said...

I'm at my day job right now, so I'll have to check for the daisy dress when I get home, but I remember it was my Easter dress that particular year, so I'm sure there's a picture somewhere. Whether or not I can find it is a whole different story.

Oh, and I'm 51. Happy birthday tomorrow! You are exactly 6 days older than my sister.

nikko said...

Your new do is so cute! Great old pictures!

Natalie said...

Your hair looks great! :)

I did not have any of those clothes...but I have my own set of clothes where I look back and think, "what the heck was I thinking???" LOL!

txmommy said...

cute hair!! I love it!

Happy Birthday!

It's All Good! said...

Happy Birthday! Great list. I especially like #8...looks like your standing at the edge of a cliff with the shadow effect.
Thanks for stopping by.
Brenda :)

FRIGGA said...

Very cute haircut! And all those pictures were great! I love the idea for the post, seeing you grow up in pictures, very neat idea!

Danica said...

I love this list because not only is it fun to see how people grew up, but you are so positive about everything. At least I think it's positive! I mean, all your comments about yourself and most of the things you say in general are nice :) I love the clown shirt! I would wear that! Also, I love your blog title. My new year's resolution last year was to bring more joy into my life. I should blog about that!

e-Mom said...

I enjoyed all of these! You're new haircut is awesome. :~D

Regina said...

What a great walk down memory lane! Thanks for sharing! Those daisy pants are soooo cute!!
And I also have a smile joyful picture with an arm around my shoulder (cut out the boyfriend, he was just no good!!).
But I love your last picture, love the hair!
Blessings!

Lovely photographic memories. My daughter has some daisy pants similar to your old ones. :)

Celticlibrarian said...

I had a green cowl neck sweater. It made my hair look really red. Happy Birthday and Happy TT!

Klin said...

I like the hair do for today. Sleek and sassy. That was a fun review. You are so photogenic.

Robin said...

Have a Happy Birthday even though your hubby is away. I know yesterdya was super busy day. Thanks for all you do. I'm greatful to have you as my friend.

When I was 30 I had an article ready to go live that included snaps of myself from my christening shot through to 30. Unfortunately, I lost my hard drive and most of the scanned pics :: grumble ::

I must do that for myself when I am 40...or maybe 42. 42 seems a bit more exciting than being 40. ;)

I love these shots. It's like traveling through time. :)

Thanks for visiting my taxing TT. I have another one at Raven's Roads (http://www.ravensroads.com) if you've time.

The Gal Herself said...

Your new haircut is terrific! And they made all of us pose "cute" for the senior yearbook photo. It's not your fault! (Thanks for visiting my TT)

forgetfulone said...

I love the title of your blog! I enjoyed all your pictures. Brought back memories for me, too. Love your new 'do!

cajunvegan said...

That's a rockstar 'do! Thanks for stopping by my Hollaback Girl TT. I hope you'll be back.

I have a good life said...

I love the memories. It is so fun! I LOVE the hair...it looks AWESOME! :) You should've dropped by to show me. I hope your day is awesome tomorrow.
