Sweet things ~

I had to share something with you that I love to collect. It may be because I have five sons. Or maybe, I love beautiful old, sweet baby dresses but anyway....I love these neutral, cream colored baby clothes. It doesn't matter if there are little moth holes, stains or rips. They have a history. Who have they clothed in their little life? I love them all.
I have a sweet friend, Sharon, who gives me a baby dress for Christmas because she knows...and understands these little things I love....Here's one I found at The Plum Tree that was Cindy's.....I'll show you one that Sharon gave me this Christmas soon, it's precious...xxoo, Dawn

I want to take it up and let it run through my fingers.

I collect lace, mostly from Italy, and some days I just sit down to look at my collection and dream :-)

Very sweet dress... I love old things, b/c they have "memories" attached to them - memories we maybe don't even have a clue about.

One time at an estate sale I came across a huge lot of old lace...the pieces I enjoyed the most were the cotton ones that had been patched, sewn, re-patched again and again. All with careful, beautiful stitching.

Made me wonder about the person that wore that old lace collar, and rather than buy or make a new one, it continued to be repaired.

Things like this bring me back to when my children were babies- sweet, soft skin, pouty little lips, pudgy cheeks. Ah, babies. They are the most wonderful beings.
I will be on the lookout for you. :)
