Blue Dress a la 1981

I love that my parents saved a lot of my old dresses, and my (homemade!) hair accessories as well.  There are few things as sweet as watching Violet rock one of my old frocks - and that's just what she did today for church.  She obliged me a few photos in exchange for a sucker... one that matched her dress, of course.  

My parents made each of these clips for my sister and I when we were kids.  Now Violet is their proud owner, and we keep them on the bar and velvet strips my Dad crafted when I was young.  It's fun just to go through them, enjoying specific memories or just the warm feelings of childhood in general.

love the hanger of bows. it's amazing how many hair accessories we've managed to collect in the short 14 months our daughter has been alive. ours living in a little house we made to hold them so we could see what we had on hand: http://www.patrioticandromantic.com/2011/12/storing-all-those-bows-2/
