Nostalgia

My sister and I loved our Holly Hobbie nightgowns so much when we were little that our mom bought an extra nightgown for each of us. She put them away in the closet to give to us at a later date. She didn't realize at the time that it would be about 28 years before she thought about the nightgowns again! Thank goodness we both have little girls who also love the nightgowns! O was thrilled with her very old "new" nightgown!

    Wow, with all the Holly Hobbie love, they should bring her back!....and no, not in the new Holly Hobbie & friends I've seen recently :(
    Love the gowns! My mom recently found a handstitched pillow with her on it I used to have. But alas, I only have boys so far. :)

  13. Thanks for all of the Holly Hobbie love! We still have our Holly Hobby sheets, too, and we used our Holly Hobby curtains (made from sheets when we were little) for the backing on O's I Spy quilt :)
