Once upon a time...POTD



This is another peek into the history of my mom. This is her when she was a young girl. The pictures was taken at her birthday and she's showing off some fancy new dolls she had been given. Her mother obviously dressed her very nicely. She has told me and my girls stories about funny thing she often did to ruin these fancy dresses. Among the more funny stories are the 2 that involve climbing a fence and a kind woman (who would become her mother-in-law many years later) helping repair the dress so she wouldn't get in trouble and her attempt at making her own correction fluid (using bleach!)

What a great photo and story to go with it! How amazing that it was her future mo-in-law that helped her out! What year do you think this was taken in? Were her dresses all hand-made? I'm thinking the doll dresses must have been to match hers like that. This photo should be on the cover of a blurb book!
