You're evoking memories again!
As a little girl had a favourite blue cotton summer dress.
(My 'Mommie dearest' gave it away to an underprivileged child in the neighbourhood)
I was bereft!
I would probably still have it today - I loved it so.
Thanks for the memories anyway - glad your mother is on the mend have a lovely weekend x

I love little girl dresses...actually had my own couture line for children...so I'm the wrong person to be objective about these beauties!! Glad your Mom is still with you, going strong and able to celebrate another Mother's Day with you!

It's one of those times I wish my Mom was still here....

Is that first photo your daughter Lenore? She's adorable. Wishing you and your mom a very Happy Mother's day. I love your dresses post. How lovely it was to get a new dress as a little girl! I remember my most favorite one in the whole world had little bells sewn in between the dress and the petticoats (do they still call them that?) I loved hearing myself jingle like Tinkerbell... xo

Adorable!! I was a real tomboy as a child, my sister was the girlie one. Perhaps that's why now I love all these sweet little dresses? Luckily I can buy them for my niece and indulge myself that way... Happy weekend to you!! ♥

What a sweet tribute! And I love those dresses, Dahling! My mommy used to dress me in the most divine clothes as a little girl (let's not talk about what she put me in as a tweenie). I still remember this gorgeous red, white and blue frilly number with white dots and bows. I adored it! I was her little doll.
What fun to remember.

Thanks, Lala! (That's my new nickname for you. Do you like it? Please say yes, for my fingers are cramped when I type out the full thing.) *kidding*

God bless you and your mother especially on this day. Happpy Mother's day to you and your mother!
And thank you for asking of these icing cookies. Lenorenevermore, I've found some icing cookies at Dean$Delluca here but they are something similar but are made at a Japanese pastory in Tokyo. Yet, they are pretty enough to buy. In fact, I've sent some to my mother. She'll love them. Thanks to your post, I've learned something new.

Jen said...

Dearest,

Thanks for stopping by. And for evoking sweet sensations of the days of yore... the best part of being a girl - those incredible dresses.

Moms are lovely. Enjoy your time with yours.

I totally get the fascination with children's clothes. Some of them are just so damn cute! I swear, I was mostly excited when I found out my best friend was having a girl because of all the outfits I'd get to buy her!

chelsea jade said...

i once purchased a child's dress from a thrift store and attempted to fashion an adult sized dress from it.

my plan far outshone my skills!



mothers are wonderful.

Winnie said...

Oh I used to wear so many adorable dresses when I was little! Kids nowadays don't get dressed up as dolls so much do they?

I was born on my mom's birthday, she likes to grudgingly remind me every so often lol. I think I was the best present ever, don't you think? Haha.

Pop Champagne said...
