Vintage Pictures...when life was simple?!?

Hi everyone. Oh my.....I guess we are getting some more snow tomorrow...I want so much to start doing things outside....but I guess we have to wait. My seeds that I ordered from Etsy should be arriving any day now...so I will have my fingers in some dirt by this weekend.

I was playing on Pinterest tonight, saw some neat vintage pictures and thought I would post them here for something different. Hope you enjoy. Being I used to be a hairdresser years ago....my eyes always look first to the hair-dos. As you scroll down you'll see some light romance and dancers.
Thought this was a very pretty lady........love the blues and the softness of the picture. I can only imagine what her thoughts were while this picture was being taken. Do you think life was a little bit simpler back then...I wonder.
This lady sure has some long flowing hair on her head.....looks real curly too. I think it could use a little trim.....maybe a big trim...lol!!
I looked real close at this picture of the young girl....it looks like she had a really tight perm...the hair almost looks "frizzy" on the ends....poor little girl. My mom used to give me tight perms when I was younger...uge...almost frizzy, I would put a bow in the middle of my hairdo and called myself a poodle....ha!! Her lips sure are cute though, aren't they?
Look at the head of hair on this flapper from the 20's...I was reading that the flappers were a rebelious bunch of kids...smoking, drinking, dancing, wild parties. Kind of like now...guess nothing has changed in that department.
Here's a couple of flappers doing the "charlston" together. They look like they were having some real fun. He sure has a head of hair on his head, looks like an "Elvis" hairdo...pretty wild, huh!?!
This last picture is just a little bit of romance for you. Sweet picture, just over the moon. I have been enjoying the moon the last couple of nights...it has been so pretty and bright.

Well, there you have it a few pictures from the past. I've been playing with Ancestry.com the last couple of days, so I guess that is why these old pictures attracted me. For some reason, my grandfather and grandmother have been hard people to find. They died in '59 and '63. I found my grandfater in the 1940 census...but after that I hit the brick wall, not sure where he was from 1940 to 1959 and my mother never talked about him. Well I have until the 28th to try and find some new info. I did find out my father only had a 6th grade education, at 21 he was still living with his mother. He was working for a Dept Store in shipping...that was some new info that I never knew before. Well, I will keep on searching and see what comes up.

In the mean time you all have a great day and keep looking up. Cheers ~ Louise

I hope you can find more information about your grandfather, Louise.

Those old pictures are amazing, aren't they? I suppose the one with long tresses was very proud of that long curly hair. Can you imagine taking care of that? lol xo Diana

I think life was way simpler before computers. The world picked up speed then. My neighbor girl's mom used to give her home perms and they were super curly. Blessings, xoxo,Susie
