i adopted it this weekend


it was the stains that convinced me

    I’m a sucker for baby clothes from the Gap. But I miss dresses like this, or hand-smocked masterpieces. I think you did a good thing bringing this dress home.

      thank you, sugar. once i spied those stains, i simply could not leave it there, stuck away in the corner.

    I can taste the frozen confection that melted down the front..
    You rescue the best things~

    • whollyjeanne

      i’m definitely in rescue mode. at least this dress and the other things (i still have one to show you) don’t eat or require litter . . .

    What a perfect reason…

      thank you for understanding.

    Oh, my. What that dress has seen. Love this. And, of course, its new owner.

    • whollyjeanne

      it is a storied dress, isn’t it? not much life in terms of chronological time, but still a lot of life was lived in this dress, me thinks.

    I love the infinite possibilities of this post and this picture.

Pull up a chair why don't you, and let's talk . . .
