Ruby Tuesday - Christmas in East Hartford
Ruby Tuesday, hosted graciously by Mary, arrives for the week. The only rule a lot, a little red. Given that it is the Christmas/holiday season, my theme is Christmas at home in earlier times on in East Hartford Connecticut.
At left is the sort of thing we do not see these day on siblings - matching nightwear for Christmas Eve pictures. My mother purchased five matching ruby nightgowns and sort of matching ruby sleepwear for the two boys. I am hazy on the year, but believe is 1967. A while ago...
The other picture is from 1976, and I took it with the then revolutionary Polaroid SX-70 instant picture camera - those of a certain age do remember these. I was in college by then, so no matching sleep clothing. Plenty of things to open. though.And lots of ruby wrapping paper and old style (non-LED) lights. Nice memories of families together...Follow the rubies at Mary's fun meme.
