LOOK AT ALL THE PRINT DRESSES IN THE 50's OF MY THREE GREAT AUNTS, MY MOTHER AND BOTH GRANDMOTHERS IN NORTH DENVER! (and see the flowers?)
I was influenced by everything FLORAL plus Art Deco furniture and nicknack's in their north Denver homes, and Uncle Jo's home-made wood craft-works in his shed near 32nd and Spear Blvd. . .
I wanted to run away to Mexico. . .
my Aunt Francis had a tall, red, metal pantry cabinet in her basement of her north Denver home. As a kid, I'd look at this Mexican decal & wished I could run away to Mexico, especially in the winter...
