A Blast From My Past

by verdemama on April 18, 2011

Not many of my childhood keepsakes survived our many moves and purges of the past 30-odd years, but I’m grateful my mother kept a stash of my baby clothes in an old cedar chest in her basement, waiting for the day to pass them off to me. She brought a big bag of vintage goodies to me the last time she came to visit, and happily everything is still in pretty great shape, even after (ahem, cough, choke) 35 years.

Just wanted to share a few of those treasures here. I think it’s pretty amazing to be able to pass along a piece of my past to little Baby J.

Two pretty dresses. The green one on the left I wore at my first birthday party.


Yellow dress by Polly Flinders


A little blue number by Nannette.


Handmade apron-style dresses, by whom I’m not sure.


Baby sweater, hand-knit by my grandmother, I believe . This is teeny-tiny, like, newborn size, so I’m not sure Baby J will ever get to wear it. (I make big babies, plus the weather will likely be warm when she arrives.)


Another hand-knit number (also by my grandmother?)— the sunniest little yellow cardigan, ever.  I’m sure she’ll sport this one often in the cooler months.


Hand-knit white hooded cardigan (again, grandma). This one will come in handy during the cool winter and spring months.


These are the most tiniest and most adorable little Mary Janes. Unfortunately they are super rigid from age so it’s unlikely she’ll ever actually wear them. But they sure are cute to look at.
