"Show and Tell Friday"
Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!" Do you have something special to share with us? It could be a trinket from grade school, a piece of jewelry, an antique find. Your show and tell can be old or new. Use your imagination and dig through those old boxes in your closet if you have to! Share photos and if there's a story behind your special something, that's even better!
I have two childhood outfits to share with you today.
Back in 1978 when I was 2 years old, my Uncle Harry and Aunt Betty went to visit Scotland and they brought back this outfit for me.
A small kilt and white satin blouse.
A kilt pin.
Lace on the end of the sleeve.
Lace ruffles on the front of the blouse. Does anyone know the exact name of this?
Here I am in September of 1978. The baby is my sister, Jenny.
This next outfit is a dress, made for me by my Great Grandmother back in 1980. She must have been quite old, but still able to sew well.
A sweet starry sky fabric.
A few hand sewn stitches.
Delicate lace on the front of the dress.
Three tiny buttons on the back.
This photo was taken in 1981, when I was 5. In addition to a sister, I now had a baby brother!
Thank you for looking at my show and tell!
