    That last photograph is fab and I love the redhead!

    So cute! And it’s easy to see where the love of clothes comes from!

    hahahah — oh dear, this brought back memories for me, too. I have an older sister and my mom used to make us matching things for the longest time..until she was 10 and grew about 5 inches in one summer. After that, no more matching outfits.

    I love these photos…they bring back my childhood with all it’s attendant joys and traumas…my mom had that weirdly coercive loving focus on our appearance that showed itself in carefully coordinated outfits for us regardless of whether we wanted them or not.We looked great!
    (A note to you, Ms. Pseu— when I was abt. 2, my father was sent to oversee the incursion of a major American oil company into France–he was Canadian , however, and he and my mother were not entitled to the perks that the American employees had, of grocery shopping at the American military base for food, cigarettes, etc.So my Mom was “forced” to go to the outdoor market in Versailles where we lived, and shopped for clothes in French stores, with me in tow (my sibs were attending school by then). She still remembers how exquisitely made and elegant the clothes for children were. All the school children had uniforms,and even they were beautifully tailored…the little blazer my 5 year old brother and sister wore look superbe in the old photos we have, and our play clothing (we were there two and a half years)was sturdy but beautifully finished. Evidently he French developed their love of well made clothing at an early age.)

    Now I understand why you don’t wwear hats, Pseu….so sad. No, you guys are adorable! Thanks for sharing…and I wish I had a sister to torment!

    Katriona, more sober-looking garments though. My mum hated anything like “mother-daughter look-alikes” and I didn’t have a sister. Less said about brother the better.

    Katriona, someone dear to me lives in a small German city with a US and NATO military base nearby. The military based there have all their own shops and buy stuff shipped in from the US, even wine, beer and bread. (This is an a famous Riesling-growing district, and beer + bread go without saying in Germany). I can think of worse hardships than having to “go native” in such places.

    OMG, those giraffe dresses are so cute! My mom used to dress me and my sisters alike too.

    I think I had a cowgirl outfit just like that! Alas, no boots though. Great pictures – thanks.

    Is it wrong that I want you to return to your hair “roots” when I see these adorable photos? You both were TOO cute.

  12. July 15, 2010 / 2:16 pm

    Thanks everyone for your very sweet comments. I should probably point out that I’m the older one. My younger sister came by her lovely red hair naturally; mine was a result of “better living through chemistry.” 😉

  13. July 15, 2010 / 8:47 pm

    So that’s why you wear red hair so gracefully! What did the little sidekick grow up to be?

  14. July 15, 2010 / 8:52 pm

    Duchesse – my little sidekick grew up to be an engineer! She was always super smart.

    Really cute pictures!

    Hey, I knew you were the gorgeous REDDISHBROWNhead. It looks good on wee you — though you carry off your sister’s shade pretty darn well.

    [Hey, isn’t that the reverse of the little one stealing the older one’s stuff, ha?]

    Hey Pseu, I prefer to think that I grew up to be a bad example, thank you very much. Or was that a horrible warning, perhaps a cautionary tale?

    Love the pics. Brings back fond memories. I am proud to say there isn’t a single dress in my closet these days. Not even a giraffe inspired one. Ha!

    pseu, you aren’t as “ginger” as little sister, but your hair is definitely naturally reddish.

    I think by our age, a lot of our hair colours depend on “better living through chemistry”! Though I’m test – growing out the silvers this summer, when I don’t have much “public” work.
