Vintage Tuesday

Well, I am dating myself this morning... Although I would not consider myself vintage, I am going to show you a piece of my clothing that I wore when I was 16.

I host another blog called The Bakers Dozen and every 6 weeks we make a project with a designated theme in mind.  The symbol for this particular time period was Symbol and someone showed a pair of blue jeans they had painted up with lots of designs that symbolized things in their life.

The photo of those jeans brought back memories of when I was a teenager and tye-dying t-shirts and painting the words "Flower Power" and "Fight Fat" on them. WoW!  How long has that been and what fun we had!

So this morning for Vintage Tuesday I give you my blue jean shirt which I painted and embroidered on and wore to school every chance I got!
How many of you remember the movie "Smokey and the Bandit"?  I also remember all of the guys having CB's in their cars and when we would ride around on the weekends talking to our friends on them.  We had so much fun!!
My nickname in high school was Fred so it had to go on my shirt too!
I love the spelling of my name.  My dad was the one who gave it the spelling and I have had many compliments on it all of my life.
