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.
