Those Grandma-made Dresses
. . .
Sophia's grandmother, my mom, is a wonderful dressmaker. She had sewn our clothes since we were kids. She is very detailed up to the smallest hand-stitch. In fact, she even made intricate Barbie gowns for my cousins, younger sister and me...  How I wish I would have saved at least one of those clothes.

Now, I keep those she made for my daughter.  Those outgrown sizes, we use to dress up some of her dolls and bears. The only problem is how to keep them clean.

Day 8: Where have all the dandelions gone? by lancelonie, on Faceboo
The white-ruffled dress on these photos has two versions (or three, including mine, on left photo).  The texture on the fabric and the details sewn are fabulous.  I love them! Thank you, mommy dearest!

. . .

By the way, Sophia's photos were taken on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, right after Rozene Ann's christening in St. Brendan's Church. Reception followed in a buffet restaurant in Glendale. The (sea)food is great. We're going back to the place one of these days...

Thoughts To Ponder

Have you kept any sentiment like this?  It doesn't have to be home-made like mine.  Someone may have probably bought it for you as a gift.  Do you still have it with you?

You know, it's not just for your own keepsake but it's a lovely gesture to show the giver your appreciation.

What's that???  Second-hand or "unwanted" gifts?  LOL.  That's another story...
