My O(5) LOVES to play dress-up more than anything in the world. She loves to dress in "old time" clothes and actually spends most of her time (at home) wearing "dress-ups" of some sort.
So, for her 5th birthday, my bought a gorgeous colonial style dress for O to wear while on our family vacation to Colonial Williamsburg. O LOVES her dress and wears it often. She has a matching dress for her Kaya (American Girl) doll, and it is just adorable.
Since I don't like to show my children's faces on this public blog, taking pics that do the dress justice was a little difficult. I did my best, and here they are...
The pocketbook and mob cap came with the dress (she bought the straw hat in Williamsburg with her birthday money). O wears the mob cap EVERY night to sleep (in order to be like Mary and Laura Ingalls who wore nightcaps to sleep)...it is adorable.
Along with the dress, Cherilynn from Ashley's At
tic sent a couple of buttons to start O's button collection. O LOVES collecting buttons, and she was thrilled with the buttons that started her collection.
Both of our girls will be receiving pioneer nightgowns
for themselves and their dolls for Christmas. I can't wait to see their faces when they open them...I think these nightgowns will probably be their favorite Christmas gifts!

Here are few of my favorite things from Ashley's Attic...
this Victorian nightgown
is gorgeous! O would LOVE to have this, but I'm pretty sure I'd never get her out of it! This Little House on the Prairie dress
is beautiful! I also love this pioneer dress
! The wonderful thing about these nightgowns and dresses is that they are heirloom quality. After my girls grow out of them, I plan to save them for my grandchildren and great-grandchildren!
