Retro Camera App

On my phone, I have an application called Retro Camera. It has about 5 different  old cameras on it including The Bรคrbl (1951), Little Orange Box (1976), Xolaroid (1972), Pinhole Camera (very vintage), and FudgeCan (1961). Its really a fun App. Here are some sample pictures I took of some roses (and my dog Benny) in my yard. Quite beautiful if I do say so myself...

MY FAVORITE! It looks like a heart in the middle!

I so soooo excited when my grandmother told be she had a big bin full of all her toys when she was a kid. So for the first "Grandma's Toys" post, here are her Barbies. When Barbie was truly a modest young lady.

Vintage Bubblecut Barbie: 1961-1967

Looks almost exactly like my Easter dress!!
Titan hair in ponytail- can't find another doll like this one yet....

Clothes assortment. Some my grandmother made.

Fur coat with cute buckle

Note the Tennis Rules in the coat pocket

Most of them had real zippers!
