This week at http://www.iheartfaces.com/ the theme is "Nostaligia." Ironically we have a male guest photographer named Jose Villa. I wonder how he feels about barbies, dolls and tea parties! I am a girl so I mean that is what I think about! LOL! I guess we will find out!
This week was especially challenging for me because when I think of my childhood we grew up on a farm running around in corn fields, chasing fireflies, playing in the old barns, playing in an old abandoned cemetary near my grandma's house, stealing Swan's ice-cream push pops out of my grandmas freezer in the basement (shhhh! don't tell her) and watching the lightning storms on my grandmas porch. We lived with my grandma in a small town called Highland Illinois and we now live in Boise Idaho which is the complete opposite of my childhood. If I could have had it my way I would have been chasing fireflies in this picture or pouring salt on slugs (Me do that... never!) but we don't have those here in Idaho.... at least none that I could find!
So anyways here is the next best thing for me. Good Ol Fashioned Lollipops from Goody's Ice Cream Parlor! And look even her outfit matches and has swirlies! I remember these and those giant jaw breakers my parents used to get me... and what about the candy cigarettes... I know they are terrible but I used to love to get them as a child!
