Monday, April 5


I joke that I'm investing in therapy for my children when they are older for Von Trapp Family Syndrome. Their clothes weren't made from curtains and they do still love matching each other so I think we're alright.
The older boy's sailor suits were made from two different vintage patterns - one from the 1940's and one from the 1950's. Chase's shortalls were from a fairly recent pattern. The girl's dresses were bits of different patterns and my imagination where pattern pieces I needed didn't exist. As time permits, I'll try to post individual photos of each outfit. The sailor suits are particularly cute designs with button front or side pants.
Hope your Easter Day was a wonderful celebration of life. We went to church, gardened, ate some delicious lamb and roasted potatoes, walked with friends, and put up a new chicken fence.
Happy Monday!

So cute! I love to joke that one of my favorite things about homeschooling is that I can dress my children in all of the sweet innocent vintage-y type clothing that I love, instead of the trendy stuff that is de rigueur for the kids in school;)

Hasn't this weather been sublime?

I don't know if you receive your comments on older posts, but I just had to tell you, as I am catching up on my blogging, that you are such a good mother and striving so hard to be a Godly woman. That is so impressive to me, as it seems that it is a dying art or a dying desire anymore among women.

I am in awe at your sewing for your children (what wonderful matching church attire!).

I pray that the Lord blesses you, Hannah, for all that you do for others and for your family.

{{Blessings to you}}
