Christmas Shopping - Fifties Style!

This week's challenge at CD Sundays is "The 1950s" so naturally I went straight for my Joanna Sheen "Viva la Divas" CD. I love this CD for the selection of 50s style images brought bang into the 21st century with their witty captions.

There's lots of attention to detail - if you look carefully through the back window of the car you can see an authentic 1950s street scene, complete with a classic Morris Minor in the background. But what I love most about this image is that having been a little girl in the 1950s myself, I can remember having a coat exactly like the one the little girl is wearing.
