Nothing is finer then Memories

If you've been checking in on my last couple
of Blog Posts then you know I'm on a mission
of some sort to find clothes for my Vintage Tammy Dolls

This hand-made Summer Outfit is my latest find.
Isn't this darling?
A bathing Suit and Matching Cover-up
And to top it off it's handmade!

When I was a young girl our Mom made us girls
a cover up just like this one
except ours had matching shorts~

So this doll outfit sure brought back 
some very fond memories

Now I'm gonna have to find a photo
of us girls wearing ours!

Hubs and I were very busy last weekend..
It was a Valentine Theme Sleepover

And 5 of our 8 Grands
had a Grand time at Grandma & Grandpas

We Played Games... a first for all of them

They stayed busy working on
Valentine Crafts!
While nibbling on Valentine Sweets!

And then we laid out all the
sleeping bags and pillows
on the living room floor..

Turned on a Movie...

And around midnight the last grand-peep
 fell sound asleep...

In the morning hubby made
them all a yummy pancake breakfast..
with home-made maple syrup...

We made "Memories"

What a wonderful way to spend a night! Seeing them all in their sleeping bags makes me think of my kids staying with their cousins at my parents... all lined up on the living room floor! What a great way to be grandparents!

Your vintage doll clothing is adorable, Diane! And what a fun party for you and your sweet grandchildren! I can't wait until ours are old enough to all stay at our house at one time. Those are the best memories to make. :)

Margaret said...

That looks so fun I wish I was young enough to be one of your grands! How fun! They will remember special times like that forever! Love the bathing suit and cover up. I think those were always so nice. Perhaps we need a little more "cover ups" these days on the beach for our young people! ;)

Jane said...

What wonderful memories your grandchildren will have - such fun!!! Love the doll clothes too!
