Yeh! So! So What Lynn! You have posted a photo of an open window. What's with that? "What's with that you ask?" Well if you look down at the post below, about the snow storm we had, and then 6 days later it's all gone and the temperatures were in the 80's and I had all my windows opened enjoying the warm fresh gentle breezes, it was just amazing. It really seemed surreal. We enjoyed the weekend so much, Bobby G. fishing and me puttering in the gardens and we even had dinner on the deck. We planted some spinach and mesclun and cleaned up fallen tree branches and limbs. Yeppers, Spring is coming, by the calendar, just 10 days away, and then Easter.
Spring into spring with these darling vintage pillowcase dresses. I have been busy as a bee working in my studio on "new" old dresses for the little ones. Once slept upon, now these gorgeous old pieces are sweet dresses. I search far and wide for old pillowcases that are in perfect or near perfect condition and feature beautiful hand embroidery and crochet laces. Each one I find I think "that is my favorite". My most recent find is the adorable "Grandma" pillowcase. I have made these sweet dresses as flower girl dresses, Christening dresses, birthday dresses and for special photos. The fun thing about these cuties is that they are sometimes called "grow with me" dresses, as once they become too short, they can be worn over pantaloons or jeans as a topper. Mine have adjustable tie ribbons at the shoulders and always feature a special crochet flower or vintage button and bow at the neckline. As each one is a one-of-a-kind they are sure to become heirloom pieces. Going green a pretty way. :)
See you for Pink Saturday!
