i willingly confess that i am the world's biggest pack rat. after the 4 big kids were grown, i saved a multitude of things in the attic, even though i was fairly sure that i would never need them again. i saved things from the obvious of clothes and toys, to games and books, as well as a myriad of other miscellaneous things.
so imagine my delight when i went on to have 2 more children, and am able to bring down all the "attic delights" for 2 more little ones to enjoy.
when M was a baby, i made her this purple gingham dress, which she wore for her first birthday picture.
now it's time for the little purple gingham dress to go back up to the attic, lovingly packed away, anticipating the next sweet little girl to wear the birthday dress.
