Finish It Up Friday- Five Favorites (plus a couple)

Any of you old enough to remember
The Three Faces of Eve
with JoAnn Woodward?

Well, today's post is all about
The Looks Of Lulu

I couldn't resist posting these.
Her baby sitter made her up and
took pictures of her for a school project.
She is supposed to look like a
1950's young movie star.
I think they hit the nail on the head,
don't you?
One more of her in the 50's mood
Look at the bow in her hair and the curls.
Here she is unmade up...
as we usually see her as she goes off to school.
 If you remember for Easter Sunday 
she set her hair in pin curls.
She is usually NOT THE CLOWN in the family
so it fun to get her when she is 
mugging for the camera.
C'mon Lulu!
Give us a nice smile for the camera!
Okay-
How about one of your 
"SWEET" SELF?
I love that one, Lulu,
but could we get 
JUST ONE MORE?
Do a nice picture with Papa now!
Okay?
(Papa thinks she is smiling nicely at the camera)

Lulu!
Now look what you've done!
He feels so bad now- 
Papa is sitting in the car and texting his only friend
cuz his feelings are hurt.
Poor Papa!

I felt so sorry for MyHero that I decided
I should take him away for the weekend.
(Hey-Any excuse for a road trip, right?)

I am leaving this morning and will
be gone until Monday morning.
Hope MyHero wants to go with me
otherwise it is Hasta la vista, baby!

  16. Lulu is just so gorgeous, made up, or not.

    And I love it, that she has mastered gentle make up, herself. Yes, she looks super, done up by her sister, for the 50's look. But I see a lovely and soft makeup, in the Easter photos. Purrrrrrrrrfect!

    Oh and that #6 photo down... That hair, which was pincurled and looks so beautiful!!! SHE looks so beautiful! I love it. :-)

    My grand girls are now 23, 21, and nearly 17. Grown! Up! Enjoy these girls. Soon they will be all-grown-up too. Yes, even Baby Bright Eyes. Over night it happens. How? Don't know. But it does. :-)

    Hey, have a great holiday!!!!!!!! Yes, yes, yes!!!!!

    Safe travels!

    Glad you got away- long winter and your being sick, you both need this. Enjoy! See ya when you get back!

  64. Gorgeous pictures of your silly granddaughter. I hope you are enjoying your time away this weekend! Perhaps you are actually getting some long overdue sunshine! Of course as our spring break is coming to an end, we are finally getting decent weather.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I was just thinking recently on one of your last posts that Lulu is looking so much older. She looks so pretty in these pictures dressing up in the 50's. I LOVE THAT FIRST PICTURE! When I saw it on my side bar, I thought it was old vintage picture. Way to go, Lulu.

    Have a lovely week ahead, Diana.

  68. What a beautiful girl she is and I have to say the babysitter should be thinking of a new career in photography! I am glad you weren't going away the "bunny" or I would be a little worried about you! Hope you had a great weekend!

  69. The sitter did an outstanding job capturing the 50s look.
