Early Golly Bard

Had a good laugh over these pictures.
This is me in nursery school. I was a 70's girl.
I grew up in Montclair, New Jersey - a hop skip and a jump from 
New York City. Free to Be You and Me and Really Rosie 
were my favorite albums.

This is my Blue Jay from first grade. 
Alas, not much has changed!

Adorable! I was a 70's girl too, and 'free to be you and me' was my favorite, I loved that album. The blue jay drawn by your young self is awesome!

The picture of the Blue Jay is gorgeous. I love the atmosphere in old photos and the picture of you is beautiful.

That is the cutest blue jay ever, he looks like he's on a mission! My favorite 70's song as a child (and I still love it) is On the Radio - Donna Summer.

Hey Holly, it's so wonderful that you have pursued your talent into adult life. So often diversions happen and we lose our path!
A wonderful little snippet of serendipity to share with you from our evening meal tonight.
We have created Grace cards for our table [see my post 13th June 'Serendipity at Mealtimes'] and tonight the card that was drawn had your art on it and the message 'In plenty think of want; In want, do not presume plenty - Chinese proverb'. The kids were quite excited when I told them that I had met the artist on the internet.
Thank you for the many blessings that you share,

Felicity

such talent at an early age:)

holly aka golly said...

Laura, I was listening to all of the songs last night after many years ... Marlo Thomas and Friends - old friends by now ... I can still remember all of the words!

Absolutely perfect and wonderful! What a treasure to have those pictures!

"Free to Be... You and Me" definitely had a formative effect on me! Love it! My kids get a kick out of "Boy Meets Girl"

holly aka golly said...

Ha! Lynn, That's too funny!

caroline said...

holly aka golly said...

Yes, those were the days!

I really like old photos and you were a super cutey. Little ones drawings are so 'mature' and 'innocent'; the trick is to retain this childish spirit, easier said than done me thinks...

I love that picture of you! At a very young age, you showed a special intensity when you were drawing and painting.

How very, very cute!
For some reason I thought you were younger than I am! :-o
Not sure why. Isn't it weird how you can form a picture of a person in your head and be so convinced it's true? (Not that you're OLD - okay, stepping deeper into the mess here, just saying I thought you were around... 22).

holly aka golly said...

Maria -Therese, you are too funny! Closer to forty would be more accurate. ; )
