When it was time to get the kids dressed yesterday morning I asked Smudge what she wanted to wear that day.
"A beautiful dress" was her answer.
I went to the closet and started to hunt around for just that, and found this dress tucked away at the back of her closet. It is a dress that Smudge's Great Grandmother, Mary, made for her youngest Granddaughter - Smudge's Auntie Ally. Oh the memories that came flooding back when I put the dress on Smudge yesterday.
Smudge loved it, and danced around looking like a princess all day in Auntie Ally's dress.
I loved watching her, and enjoyed the memories of watching another little girl dance and twirl in the same dress many years ago.
