More heirlooms

My sister and I have been fortunate to be able to have our daughters wear many pieces of our clothing from when we were babies. We are so thankful our mom saved these over the years. Here are two special outifts. Ivy is wearing the outfits my sister and I were dedicated in at church. The first one was Andrea's (1974) and the second one was mine (1977).

Before and heirloom



It didn't wear this much, this is after dad sanded it.

My mom saved the high chair that was given to her at my sister's baby shower over 35 years ago. It is a beautiful, wooden, sturdy chair. My neices used it at Grammy's house as they were babies and now my babies are using it. After all this time it has naturally worn in places, especially the tray. So, my mom and dad decided to re-do the chair last week. Dad painted while mom sewed a new cover for the chair, to match her dining room decor. Here are before pictures of my sister and I in the chair and what it is today. I think they did a great job!
