2 Nitegowns

When they were young, Dad would buy my Mom two nightgowns for every holiday or celebration.  When my sister Terry was old enough to drive, Dad would give her money and she and I would go to the Style Shop in Piedmont to buy the gifts.  Life has changed but the love and care remains.  Mom will be 87 on Friday.  Next Tuesday is their 66th wedding anniversary.  I hope Dad is able to accompany Mom to Peebles this week to buy something she likes.  

Photo taken August 26, 2012. 

The dress form is an old needle card I had stored in my sewing machine drawer.












The journaling block is a digital image from Basic Grey.  I printed it with the journaling on blue vellum.
