Gloria's 1962 Christmas card photographed at Casa Susanna


  1. "I want to be a girl" I remember longingly staring at the girly Christmas dresses in the Sears Christmas catalog, I'd dream that Christmas morning they'd all be under the tree with a nod of acceptance from my parents.
    Somehow in my dream all would be fixed and I could finally be a girl

    1. When I was a youngster, I did not specifically think about wanting to be a girl. I just wanted to do things that girls did, dress like a girl, act like a girl, etc. So I guess I always was a girl at heart.

    2. yes yes yes oh my yes me to i knew when i was just four years old that i wanted to be a girl i was attendting this nusery school at a church and everday the real little gorls always camne to the school weariing cute pretty girly dresses skirts and lingeie and oh my i was just so very enviopus of them i wanted to gp over annd be with them i wanted them to cange me magically into sweet little girlhood and i still want this even now oh my just too go back in time and become one of the girls!

  2. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

    We are both of the age to understand and appreciate the Christmas outfit worn by Gloria. I love the quality red dress with the matching hat, gloves, purse and pumps all set off with proper pearl necklace and earrings. Nothing not to like in that outfit.

    1. Merry Christmas to your family and to you, Pat, one of my most loyal readers!

      My mother dressed up like Gloria back then... not only for Christmas, but every Sunday for church. No doubt about it... I take after my mother!
