Is what came to my mind when I came upon these treasures while thrifting this last week. I am always on the lookout for vintage clothing for my little man and little lady and especially keep my eye out for handmade items. I just swoon when I come across a hand smocked dress, or hand sewn suit………….
A few months ago I had come across some handmade crocheted booties with tiny little flowers on the toes. I love them and Eleanor wears them almost daily, but they have almost fallen apart. They are just so delicate. Imagine my joy when I came across these beauties! They had never even been worn! There was a little piece of yarn tying them together so they didn’t get separated. It almost makes me sad, no one ever got to wear them. I imagine a cute Grandma lovingly making these for her new grand baby 🙂 They are just a tad big on Ellie, which is perfect, they will fit this winter for sure!
The stitch is such an airy and delicate one, I will have to make sure to be very careful with them.
During the same thrift store outing I found Ellie this darling vintage pinafore. She was not too cooperative for photos, so I didn’t get any of the back, but it really is the best part! It has a simple tie in the back leaving most of it open with a ruffle lining the entire thing. Very girly and breezy. I was really happy to find something vintage that fits her right now. She has a few dresses, but no shirts and most of the things I find are for older babies.
My older children started school today and it is also my 10 year wedding anniversary! There is lots of excitement in the air! Have a happy Wednesday.
