Show And Tell Friday


Kelli hosts a show and tell Friday. Do you have a 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! Feel free to share pictures and if there's a story behind your special something, that's even better!

My Dad let me borrow 3 boxes of old family pictures. I am going to be scanning them and putting them on CD's for everyone. I have really enjoyed going through them. I found several of me in an outfit that my Mom saved and gave to me. So, that is what I am going to share today. I am 48 years old, so these pictures are REALLY OLD!!! =)

The first picture is of the little jacket and bonnet as they look today. My Mom took great care of everything. If you click on the picture you can see the details of the outfit. I left it large for that purpose. The next two pictures are of me wearing it.

Marci,
The fabric is beautiful. When I enlarged the photo, I could see the shimmer of threads running through it. She even lined it! It still looks new. Thanks for sharing!
