Vintage Flashback :: Sassy Mamas

Nothing makes me smile like vintage photos. The colors and composition are always so other worldly. I also love trying to figure out the backstory, you know….like, what was happening when the image was taken. Occasionally you luck out and someone knows the people in the photo. Check out these fab photos that people have posted of their mamas!

How gorgeous is this lady?? I love her hair. I love her dress. But more importantly I love the fact that she is on her way to the 1967 GRAMMY AWARDS!!!!!! Aw yeah. I believe her husband was a composer. She’s is incredible.

But she wasn’t the only stylish one in the family. Look at her with her sisters on easter. These ladies are the bomb:

Mmmm, german chocolate cake. As an aside, German Chocolate cake isn’t German at all. German was a brand of chocolate (like Hershey’s) and they invented the cake!

I also love this lady’s look. She is so quirky and cool. Rockin’ in 1970. Dig that frenzy of patterns!

Ahhh, the ol “nap and smoke,” as her son called it.  Heh.

  1. That group photo looks like the King Sisters family members! And if I recall correctly, the beautiful young blonde (aren’t almost all of them?!) But on the third from the left in the yellow dress and the flowered hat is Tina Cole. She is a cousin of the King Sisters family I believe. And if that’s her, then she played Katie Douglas, Robbie’s wife on My Three Sons!
