Digging in the archives...

"Grandma, I found a princess dress!!" 

"You found a princess dress?"

"YES, can I wear it?"

"I really like this princess dress"...

pretty shoes and toenails for a pretty little princess 

even pretty fingernails... 

"Look what else I found!! "

{there are many treasures to be find at gmas house!! } 

"this is so pretty Grandma"... 

"I can do it myself"... 

YAY...success...with just a little help. :) 

" Can I wear some of these too?"

"No , sweetie "


"because you don't have holes in your ears" 

"okay, I will wear this pretty necklace"... 

Thus went the conversation a few years ago when a younger Annika was visiting me for awhile. I remember it like it was yesterday, but I had no clue what she was talking about...a princess dress???
When I went upstairs with her and saw the dress , I said ,

"YES, and we MUST take some pictures!"

You see this was MY DRESS when I was a wee lass 50 + years ago. I was probably about Annika's age when I wore it.  My sweet Annika is now six years old so she no longer fits in the dress, but I must try it on her little sister Ainsley and get photos also.

How fun to travel back to years ago all because of a dress and my sweet little granddaughter.

{These photos were taken a few years ago also and as such aren't the best quality, but I still wanted to share them with you}

Happy Monday!!

That is indeed a princess dress. It is also magical, it can turn a beautiful little girl into your own princess. Thank you for sharing these lovely pictures
