My good friend Laurie at Bargain Hunting and Chatting with Laurie has a new party and I am joining for the first time. I honestly thought I had posted about this little dress before, but can’t seem to find it. If you’ve seen, bear with me while I stroll down memory lane.
Lately, I’ve been feeling a little nostalgic. Having lost both my parents, keepsakes have become very important to me. This is a picture I had put together for my father before he died. Three little girls….on front porches….in the same dress. I don’t have any idea how this tradition got started, but I am grateful for it.
That’s my mother around 1932 about age 3 in North Carolina—I’m not sure whose front porch.
There I am at about the same age on the front porch where I grew up---same dress.
There’s Sunshine. I took this in color and had it made into black and white to frame along side the other two. Three chubby-legged blondes on front porches :)
Here is the dress. You’d think the object of such documentation would be fancy…a christening gown…French hand sewing perhaps. Just a simple hand made everyday play dress. Still, it couldn’t be any more precious to me if it were made of fine imported lace. It’s tucked away in tissue and cedar…waiting on a fourth picture…maybe…one day.
Please join Laurie here for A Few of Her Favorite Things. I look forward to seeing yours!
