All little girls that I have ever known, at some point around eight to ten years old love to play "dress up".
Back in the day when my daughter, Jennifer, was in drill team at League City High School in Texas, she gave her drill team arm cuffs and outfits to the little girls across the street when her time in the group was over. Oh my, I could see those girls out on their bikes riding with sequined cuffs on their arms. It used to make me smile. It still does. They were thrilled.
Fast forward to Matilda, my granddaughter who had her eleventh birthday yesterday. WHERE does the time go?
Recently a search of drawers and storage boxes turned up quite a lovely group of things that I thought she would enjoy having. Many of the things were previous treasures for me and had been kept for over forty years. Time to let go........
Out came the fuscia caftan that I wore at Club Med in 1978. Also a red boa that I wore as I strolled the aisles of a performance of Ray Charles in Galveston, Texas, eons ago, with my friend Amanda.
Then there were a few other things, a cute, colorful red shoulder purse, some silk high heels and a red flower to wear in her hair.
Was she thrilled, I would say so. At one point she had EVERYTHING on all at once. Here are a few
photos of our afternoon of her modeling and me photographing.
Here is a photo of her probably eight years ago. My how time flies........
They never leave that I don't chuckle over some comment made by one or the other.........children have great insight into things and dust off the fluff and say the truth. Have you ever noticed that?
What a treasure!
