Tuesday’s Treasure

This is my treasure for this week … I just love this little dress. It still has it’s shine but the seams and the fabrics are looking very fragile – and no wonder – this little darling is 74 years old!!!July 2010 011

I can see definite signs of age around the neckline and the ruffle, but the pink looks to be as pink as it was all those years ago …July 2010 012 look at these cute little ruffles!!!!July 2010 013 So who was the little princess who wore this adorable dress???? It was my gawjus Mum!!! July 2010 008 That’s her on the bottom right hand side of the pic … sorry about the flare from the flash :o/. The bride and groom were my Great Uncle Fred and my Great Aunty Phyllis. Did you notice the other little flower girl is holding two baskets of flowers … perhaps the pout on my Mum’s 3 year old face has something to do with that he he he…… July 2010 009 Looks to me like they took that pic just in time LOL.

These are my treasures for this Tuesday, hope you like them too :o).

Hi Joy
When i was decorating my daughter's room, many years ago, I hung up my christening dress on a hanger that I painted myself. It's (gasp) nearly 50 years old and looks so beautiful on the wall instead of tucked in a box. It's fragile, too, but we've enjoyed it for years now.
