AAH yes, the 60's. What a decade that was, and how it changed many things. I feel like a survived just having lived through it. LOL Tag Tuesday has "The Swinging 60's" theme starting this week, and I decided to play along, even though I am not one of their "players". The tag was fun to make and brought back A LOT of memories. I have always like the "hippie" art work that came from that decade, all the bright colors and simple designs were right up my alley....(do they still say that?)
I also did some surfing on the 'net and came across some things that I had forgotten about.
