I love this picture! One of my latest "treasures" from Goodwill..... I will display it in my bath/dressing area...... I thought at first I would hang a seashell necklace from it, but then I thought these "faux~pearls" which were my mom's would be better..... What a delightful picture though, don't you think? It reminds me of simpler times in life... it reminds me of special times with my daughter when she was small.......Some days I wish we could go back to when she was this age..... As I think back, life seemed easier then... She would giggle at just about everything... she loved to go exploring, everything fascinated her..... she loved frilly girly things....... perfume, jewelry, and dresses.... oh how she loved her dresses........... most were handmade by me, and always included flowers and ruffles and lace...... they are tucked away now, in hopes that one day another lovely little lady will wear them...... And of course back then the only boys we had to worry about around our little girl were her brothers.... and she could certainly keep them in line.... no worries there whatsoever..... I so wish it had stayed that way..... I like to remember the days when she looked like this:





But she has grown into quite a young woman... and the most I can hope for her is that one day she will know these same feelings about her own little girl.......

I am so proud of this beautiful girl...........
Love You *Miss Mary* !

You have a beautiful daughter, Joyce!

Being the mother of 3 daughters, I know how you feel! I made my girls' little outfits too! None packed away...they were handed down and down, though.

Did you wear mother/daughter dresses. The dresses were wonderful until kindergarten when she discovered what the other girls were wearing.

Joyce, I feel the same way about my daughter. Those early years were so special. Sometimes it almost hurts to look at precious baby pictures. It all went so fast.

I enjoy your blog very much.

Joyce, both you and your daughter are simply beautiful. You both have wonderfully open and kind faces. I think we all hanker after simpler times in our lives, certainly when things are hard. I think that those wonderful times will visit you once again, in fact I'm sure they will.

All my love to you
