Sweet hand me downs

At some point in your life, you will become the recipient of hand me downs. Whether it's clothes from your sister or shoes from your friend, sometimes it's really nice to get these things passed onto you. Other times, not so much. And then there are times when it's extra special and full of sweet memories. Take a look at Abby ...

The outfit that she is wearing is a hand me down from her Grandad (my Dad). My Dad wore this when he was a little boy. Then my oldest sister wore it. My middle sister wore it. I wore it. Get the drift? It's been passed down and passed down. It may not be the cutest thing on a little girl, but it sure does look a lot sweeter knowing where this outfit has come from. And of course all the memories that come along with it. :)

Oh my word, that is the neatest thing EVER! You need to see if you can find pics of anyone else wearing it.

I just helped my Mom clean out closets this week and she has clothes that were mine when I was little. She said, "Maybe I'll get rid of them." I almost hollered "NO YOU WILL NOT!" :-)

Your blog looks great, Liz!

That's awesome! Man, it's really in good shape after all that use. And, this is the reason why I can't part with some baby clothes...I have visions of cute little sundresses being passed down for generations.
