Thank goodness it popped in my head before it was to late!
I was sitting here sewing the first outfit for my granddaughter, the princess. It is a pants set and I just finished sewing on the word "Love" across the front of the top. While doing this, it dawned on me that I haven't taken a picture of the princess in the dress I was christened in yet! I panicked as I thought of when I took the picture of my daughter in that dress. I believe she was about 6-8 months old. The princess is almost nine months old!
I jumped up and ran to get the dress. I knew right where it was! Wow, I haven't looked at this in a long long time! It is actually a slip, and then a dress and then a coat! Three pieces. I didn't remember that. Nowhere on any of these garments do I see a size, but it looks like it will fit the princess still!
I unfortunately don't ever remember seeing a photo of myself in this dress, but I do have the photo of my daughter in it. My goal this week will be to take a picture of the princess in it and see if I can find a picture of myself in it. (Good luck to me!) If and when all is said and done, I will post pictures. In fact, I do think that when all is said and done I will have to post those pictures for Treasure Chest Thursday! I believe this dress just may be the "oldest" thing I own!
Sewing quietly as I was, several things have popped in my mind. I think I need to do this more often! Can you imagine when the princess owns this christening dress and the pictures she will have? Oh to be a fly on the wall then...
Do you have any pictures you have forgotten you wanted to take? Spend some quiet time doing something and see if there is one that pops in your head!
Thanks for stopping by!
Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!
