posted some childhood photos of her mother wearing very big bows. That made me think of this photo of my mother as a flower girl at her aunts wedding.

Although this is a pretty big bow, I think Nancy's mother is the winner of the big bow contest.

Here's the whole wedding party. As usual, in photos from those days, nobody looks happy. And my mother looks like her head is being put off kilter by the weight of her big bow.

They sure went all-out on the decorations. 
How about those bells!

Wow, was she ever cute!

That's a really neat photo, almost looks like a photo-realist painting rather than an actual photo. The bows are unbelievable! I'm going to post a pic of my grandma with her enormous bow, as well. Big bows were apparently de rigeur!

Wonderful photographs. And, as you say, those bells!. If the decoration came unstuck I suspect it could have done serious damage. Thanks so much for joining in with Sepia Saturday.

Is that Satori happening?

This is a wonderful photograph. You have two little girls with big bows! Your mother is very cute. She looks a little surprised or uncertain, maybe. I just wish I knew how they kept those bows in the girls' hair! I'm glad you posted this so we could compare bows. I think it's a tie.
