vintage hat from an estate sale. i considered removing the flowers.. but don't have and ideas on what to do with them.. so i'll leave it alone.

i found the cabbage the other day.. well i found this sweet original cabbage patch kid outfit and had to get it for her.. anyone who collects cpk knows it is hard to find these flower overalls!

vintage nightgown. i love the old lace on these. they date from te 1930's- 1940's usually. sometimes the 20's. found at the antique mall.

france storybook type doll. from the same este as the hat. they had a bunch.. but i just chose one. i love her red striped skirt and little purse. all the dolls were in plain cardboard boxes with their country stamped on them.

and last a 1920's -1930's child's hat.. so sweet! love the feedsack type fabric. and a bargain at just $2.00! from the antique mall.

have you ever had a dream....

that was so real.. like you could feel it.. and you were so happy.. and when you woke up it took you a few minutes to realize it wasn't true.. and you felt like you had lost something wonderful? this is what happened to me this morning.

mikey at the carnival

they has a "special persons day" at a local festival. so any kids or adults with special needs could ride the rides for free and without the regular crowd and waiting. so we took mikey and he was so brave! he rode alot of rides! even some by himself! they also gave up a hot dog lunch.. so it was really nice!
