Time Warp Tuesday, 1980 edition

I’ve been tasked with finding a classic 1980’s picture of myself. (Don’t worry, it’s for my next scrapbooking weekend — you didn’t miss an assignment!) While I remember the 80’s, with big earrings, bigger hair, and big geometric print blouses — and I can even remember all 3 on myself at once! — I have yet to find the photographic proof.

In the meantime, here are a few shots from 32+ years ago:

Christmas 1980 -- note the collar and cuffs carefully turned over the sweater.

At the age of 15, I was still receiving stuffed animals for every gift-giving occasion. Apparently my mother thought I would want a mama porpoise with a baby porpoise inside her velcroed (Velcro‘d?) belly. I think it’s obvious that I was much more pleased with the t-shirt from my sister’s university.

If you look carefully in the background, you’ll see some leftovers from the 1970’s as well. The ugly sculpted avocado green carpet is a prime example. It’s hard to tell, but there is also a large  macramé plant hanger in the distant doorway.

There might be a picture of me with lavender-colored leg warmers… somewhere…
I’ll have to keep looking.

  1. Oh my goodness! Were we really that young once?? I remember that macrame plant hanger and I always loved sitting in that green chair that is in the far right side of the photo on the left. It was SO comfy! Eagerly awaiting the lavendar leg warmers shot!!

  3. I can also see your sons in your smile. Those are very nice pictures. I refuse to think about pictures of me from 1980. Maybe they don’t even exist 🙂

  4. I love the picture where you’re opening the dolphin – seriously, I think I have one that looks just like that! Hair, cuffs, green sculpted carpet and everything. I kinda miss those days.
