A Model Child

I've been feeling a bit nostalgic lately as I've been exchanging some old photos with a girl I used to go to primary school with.

Yvonne and I met when I first moved to the area and started at my new school and we remained friends right through to Grade 6... We were still friends at High School, but drifted apart a little because we were placed in different forms, as they were known back then.

During our time at Primary school though, a few of the girls were selected to model in the Enid Gilchrist Pattern Catalogues. I tagged along one day and got recruited to wear this little sailor dress number.I recollect that the dress was a pale pumpkin colour, but I could be wrong. I still remember those sneakers though. They were blue and green tartan/plaid. Loved them and am still a fan of blue and green together, without a colour in between.

My Mum still has some of the Enid Gilchrist books and it's been fun scanning the photos of Yvonne and sending them off to her...she got quite a shock, to say the least.

...and yes, I always stand like that with one foot extended, as I'm about to raise binoculars to my eyes and look into the distance.


  1. It's just amazing what we learn about our fellow bloggers!

  2. Wow! YOU are a celebrity. I am impressed. And want to say how adorable you are in the photo. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Well, sadly this was the beginning and end of my modelling career. It was fun though, even though it lasted just 1 afternoon.


I love to hear your thoughts.
