Mother to daughter . . .


Last week my mother handed me a little package . .  I had no clue what it was . .  until I opened it up to find the most gorgeous little embroidered hungarian dress . .  the same one I wore to my grandmother's wedding when I was a little thing . .  I had seen photos but never knew she still had it . . 

She said it would fit Matilda now . .  I almost cried . . its been washed and just needs a little bit of the hem fixed but how exciting and awesome to have Matilda wearing something I once wore.

I am going to surprise my grandmother on sunday when we visit , by having Matilda wear it!

That's stunning! I love heirloom craft work, especially of the wearable kind. It's the best way to keep our knowledge alive through generations.

yay your mum!
