Ed and Odessa Craig 1925
I always loved old movies of the Roaring Twenties. It looked like such a fun time to live. I loved the dances, the clothes, the hair.
This picture is of my grandparents, Ed and Odessa Craig. I love this picture, but it is not how I remember either one of them. Granddad was a cowboy his whole life. Grandma was a housewife. She had a beautiful flower garden, loved crocheting, and always wore dresses. I never saw her in a dress like this though! She makes a pretty cute “flapper” doesn’t she?
Granddad loved to dance. I was told he won a dance contest doing the Charleston. I wish I could have been there! I wonder if they were going to a dance when this picture was taken.
It is so fun seeing a glimpse of a “fun and sassy” side of people who always seemed so proper and dignified to me.

I have since been told that this photo of my grandparents was thought to have been taken on their wedding day. That makes this even more special! Love it!
