I had a girl at school whose mom set her hair in rags. I never knew what a 'twas till my mother in law set my daughters hair that way. She used strips of fabric, rolled thhe hair around it and then tied the ends of the fabric to keep in place. A lot softer than sleeping in pins.

Going to the beauty salon for a "Cinderella" hair permanent. Recently, I came across the class portrait with the "do". I looked like a blonde ball of frizz. Of course mom had several copies made and sent them to everybody. emoticon

Those pin curls made with bobby pins made so many women all have almost the same hair style, tight curls, sometimes the person didn't comb the curls out, back in the 1930's, they left the tight curl in and had a head full of those! I remember seeing pictures of earlier high school classes in the library, when I was in high school in the 1960's. Good memories though, now! emoticon

pin curls (before the silver clips) were made with bobby pins and you had a crinkled curl from the bobby pin :-) I actually have pictures of myself with those frizzy curls! ugh!

Dick & Jane books for reading in first grade.

Something to know about this gal "Ima" - I follow the Savior of the world!

I stand in awe of the salvation, through Christ Jesus, that Creator God has granted me. May you enjoy the same!

I am so very thankful that the door of access is permanently open to The Creator & His beloved Son, Christ Jesus!

Good point about thrift stores-- AND who would have thought that the modern "style" of battered furniture would be all the rage! Haha
(The more nicks and dents---and chipped paint, the better) LOL

But then, I can say the same about Blue Jeans---The ones with tears and holes, and ragged looking, are the "style"-- (My mom would not believe this!) Ha.
(and the ragged ones are expensive in stores) Try the thrift shops for these!

God grant me the strength to reach my goal.
