|~ Three Vintage baby dresses ~|
My new friend Lanie surprised me with these just the other day.
All three are made of different fabrics.
This is my first time to join
Vintage Inspiration Friday with Debra at http://commonground-debrasvintagedesigns.blogspot.com/
Go to her blogspot for great inspiration. It's really something to chirp about!
These little dresses are adorable and they make me ponder what little
baby girls wore them...maybe to Church or a birthday party.
I need help...any ideas how best to display them? Ummm...on old dolls...?
My Chatty Cathy doll might need to be rediscovered.

|My friend Mary P. sent me a wonderful surprise and|
the first word I saw was the word believe. I am so happy to share with all my blogger friends. It always a blessing to hear from my friend Mary.
She and I are swap partner sisters friends 4-ever!
|Can you see how Mary has a certain beautiful way of making her gifts so special.|
|Look at the sweet cloth pin cushion. Isn't it pretty?|
My husband said the cross stitching 'looks like the crown of Christ'.
She decorated box (with ribbon and lace) and set inside it the sweetest surprise.
Mary is so talented and so giving to others. If you get a chance and want inspiration visit her wonderful blogspot http://jmppastimes.blogspot.com/
How blessed I am and the heart will always remind me of love.
I read on a billboard this week - LOVE is spelled T - I - M - E
It takes time to show love and Mary inspires me in how she spends her time.

|I found the little Vintage 'Fancy Hat' brooch at an antique mall in Olathe, KS and purchased for Elizabeth.|
|My new friend and swap partner Elizabeth shared that her favorite flowers were tulips and irises...|
tucked in a few blank cards and a sweet little hankie with blue tulips.
Because it is Mother's Day...I added a Holy card with the Madonna and Christ child.
Elizabeth shared she really likes the book marker...as she likes to read.
The Most Important Person on Earth
The most important person on earth is a mother. She cannot claim the honor of having built Notre Dame Cathedral. She need not. She has built something more magnificent than any cathedral - dwelling for an immortal soul, the tiny perfection of her baby's body. The angels have not been blessed with such a grace. They cannot share in God's creative miracle to bring new saints to heaven. Only a human mother can. Mothers are closer to God the Creator than any other creatures. God joins forces with mothers in performing this act of creation.
"What on God's good earth is more glorious than this: to be a mother?'
~ Joseph Cardinal Mindszenty
The above is a writing I just love to share for Mother's day. I want to add that in my opinion, having a mother is as glorious as being one. Our Moms chose life. Also, this weekend is a wonderful time to thank those who have been like a mother in our lives. A phone call or note can be VERY meaningful. Remember too, Our Heavenly Mother Mary loves you...go to her in prayer and ask for her intercession. She will not let you down I promise.
Happy Mother's Day!
