Meticulous Coloring Of The Eggs

My grandfather took this photo of my mother in 1945.  She was at 2 years and 8 months old, dyeing Easter eggs at their kitchen table in the Bronx. 

Look at that concentration.  To this day she has that look on her face when she's creating something.  I love her little chenille bathrobe and the rag curlers in her hair.

Happy Easter!

Appears to me that she had rags tied in her hair to make curls....If so, I remember that move vividly than dying the eggs. Must admit though, the rags did the trick to make curls.

Ooops...didn't notice that you had commented on the rags.

Dianne: The rags do are great for setting hair. They make good waves. My grandmother used to set my hair in "pin curls" to give me curls. I really love all the old pictures I have of my grandparents, my mother, and my aunts. My grandfather used to take a lot of photos and develop them himself in his basement. I like seeing what he captured. :)
