A very late thank-you

Connie sent us that adorable bonnet, which suits our Pearl so well. :-) Thank you, Connie! You do such beautiful smocking! I can't fully explain how grateful we are that you - who have never met us and only know us through blogging - took time out of your busy life to make a hand-made bonnet for our baby. Someday we hope to reciprocate, although neither of us are nearly so talented as you are!

(The dress she is wearing in the picture was my grandfather's. He was born in 1916 - when boys and girls both wore dresses as babies - so that makes it 93 years old. I need to learn how to properly store century-old clothing, and soon.)

(The picture was taken by me, which explains why it is blurry.)

    Connie, what a charming bonnet you made for my niece. :-) I'm also very touched that you sent it.

    And, Harmony, the photographic styling is lovely, even if the pic is a bit blurry!

    I just love the bonnet! I don't know why I enjoyed seeing my girls dressed up in such fancy hats & now my grand-daughters, & yet I would not be caught dead in one!
