3M Challenge.. Vintage Bathing Beauties..

I thought 1949 was pretty vintage now so I thought I'd show you this. Taken on the North Norfolk coast. Do you remember those old ruched bathing suits?
Yes, it's little old me!

This is how you really think of vintage I guess.
I got this song in my head and have been singing it ever since.
Can't get rid of the darn thing.........
Vintage photo I coloured in Photoshop. Background and gull Googled.

Thanks for visiting. Hope you enjoy.

My young friend Wayne came out from the garage yesterday morning, started my car, removed the wheel from the scooter and took it away to order a new tyre.
I took the car out for a ride to charge the battery up. All AOK now!

Love and Hugs

Love both your models June, particularly the top one where you are obviously enjoying your time at the sea-side. Great collages and love the words on the second one - I can't sing it in my head I don't know it.
Enjoy your day.

Yes, I remember the ruched suits. I had one in 1951! I enjoyed both your bathing pieces, June. Beautifully done, as always.

Wouaouh June! What a bathing beauty, little old you!! What a superb-looking pin up girl!
I love both of your collages!

Fantastic to use an original photo. You brought back so many memories by reminding me of the bathing suits. I had a red one in the early 60's and can remember the feel and even the smell of it.
