Dressing Up

I've posted before about my obsession (one of many, thank you very much!) with dress-up clothes. I plan ahead for lots of things, but this one is rather specific. You see, I would adore a granddaughter someday. I'm such a girly girl when it comes to my home and my lifestyle. I could make Marmie's house into a super fun girl retreat. If nothing but boys come my way, I'll make do in other ways, but for now, collecting dress-up clothes is too fun to consider stopping for the obvious reasons that 1) my daughter is a mere 18 and not close to marrying age much less motherhood, and 2) if no grandchildren or only boys come into my life, I've got big ol' tubs of vintage negliegees, boas and high-heels cluttering up my attic space.

I started collecting dress-up clothes when I was pregnant with Harleigh, and they were one of her most favorite things to play with! Hours and hours of imaginary play. Loads of great picture opportunities. And all of that collection has been saved, and that is what I'm adding to. Here are four new dresses I found on the $1 rack at a thrift store this weekend. They're all smaller junior sizes.



This is the back, with all the lace and the two ribbon roses.

Too cute! but the dress up clothes will have to wait at our house since we are having a boy. Have a great week! Jackie
