Those who get the SW newsletter would have seen that next week's theme is all about being inspired by childhood photos of ourselves. I thought I'd start a thread where we can post these photos (not just the ones that we're going to use for the challenge). I'll get started.
And yes, my daughter, Penelope, looks just like me. :)
Okay, this is embarrassing, but here goes. All of these are dresses that my mother made me.
I vividly remember designing this dress myself, and telling my mother exactly how I wanted it to look. It was a pink on white rose pattern fabric with cotton lace trim. The red turtleneck is a nice touch, isn't it? (Canada is cold).
I loved this dress - a sun dress with a little matching bolero jacket made out of a Smurf print fabric. Again, worn with a turtleneck. (I confess, i do this to my kids now. Canada is cold).
Those are pebbles flintstone sandles on my feet in the next one! and what appears to be a doily on my head.
Mum made the two strawberry dresses. I remember vividly wearing the last one to my first day of kindy, and some kid threw mud at me. I told my mum I was never going back there... and so she never took me back. awwww! some things you never forget! (and now I realise why my own daughter really hates getting dirty! - what a couple of little princesses!)
Mena.. cute,cute,cute.. and yes Penelope looks just like you.. [everyone says my daughter looks
just like me too]
