Baby Dress

I haven't posted in a couple of days and thought I'd do a quick simple post today.

I thought of this little dress that a friend of my Mom's made for me when I was born. It's the only thing I have from infancy except for pictures that my Mom still has.
Being born in the early 50's in the hills of WV there wasn't a lot of financial resources but a lot of love and kindness that helped make up for that.

I was born just after midnight, with Dr. Puckett assisting. (Glad he was available)

The dress isn't much in it's simplicity but shows they used what they had to make it a little "fancy". I'm so glad my mother kept it.
The little gold bracelet hanging on the wood hanger came later in life and has my name engraved on it.

The pink trim is embroidery thread.

The little dress is precious. I'm glad you still have it. It's amazing how much little things like this mean to us the older we get.
Blessings & Hugs
