Riveting

It's like I see my own grandmother, 65 years ago. She was 20 years old and she repaired airplanes that were shot to pieces. Somewhere deep down in Germany...

Factory Chic

I adore that outfit. I would so copy this look.

I didn't know babes in blue built big bombers. Nice!

Mom!

My mom, Rosie (real name), worked at a food dehydrator in WWII (not as a riveter). She passed away 6 years ago today (12/7/2001). Here's to all the hard working gals of WWII.

Thanks Mom!
