I grew up on Laura Ingalls Wilder books. I dreamt about being that girl. Running across the prairie. Digging for frogs and toads. And playing with that “ball thing” after the pigs were butchered. (The ball thing dream was much more recent…. when we sent our own hogs to the butchering house.)
So now I live my Laura Ingall’s dreams vicariously through my own daughter.
Imagine my delight when I got an email from another Pretty Pioneer girl! Could I share a few pictures of her darling handmade dresses? Um, yes!! This is how I love to dress my daughter! Flowy and carefree dresses that are handmade, built to last, and so darn cute!! I dream about dressing myself like this too….. but honestly lately I’m lucky to just get outta the pj’s in the morning!
There is something so fun about watching her little gears turn. She played the part to a tee… busy putting her string of beads together. (I think I do remember Mary and Laura helping baby Carrie make a string of beads!)
Keely from Pioneer Pretty has offered one of my lucky readers one of these sweet dresses too! If you don’t have a young daughter imagine how appreciated this would be by a grand daughter, niece, or friend’s child! The perfect Christmas day dress!! You will get to choose style, color and size! Keely has an amazing message that I want to help her get out into the world! You can read about it here…… I really, REALLY connect with this!
