Bench Monday: Circa 1973 Edition

My husband found this picture of me in his desk this morning. When he brought it in to the kitchen he said.. "Look.. You've been a fan of Bench Monday since you were a kid."

Me, on a bench, 1973.

Love the shoes.. I still remember them. Only because I stepped on a carpet tack strip without them on and those shoes hurt to high heaven to wear them after that.

I think we may just still have that bench...

Are the shoes "saddle shoes"? I'm thinking I may have had a pair! So cute...

How charming, me thinks we are the same age going by the fashions! Thank you for your lovely comments on my blog about Stourhead, it is one of our favourite places to go for a walk.

Love the shoes and the bench. I'm thinking we must be about the same age too (born in 1970). I'm pretty sure I had a similar pair as well.

How fun! That was a great find.

Hee, hee, it seems many of us are close in age. I think it's cool that your husband has "old" pictures of you in his desk drawer - that warms my heart.

Happy Bench Monday (two days late since I'm commenting on Wednesday).

I was one in 1973.

But I didn't have fine pants like that.

Love your pre-bench Monday, bench Monday.

Here's to old photos!
