Some of my Earliest Memories...

Are of this dress! It's a pink dress with a little floral apron over it. I remember wearing it A LOT...Together -or- just the dress -or- just the apron (oops, it only snaps up top on the back).

I would have liked to save it for my daughter but I'm sure I wore it's pale pink threads bare!

yea, yea-great picture! the Hair, the bunny cake, the country bumpkin home decor!
PS - So sad to tell you we STILL use that kitchen table for Sunday dinner every week...
Hello - It's been like 17 years, Mom! Time for a new table!

okay, I 'Tag' Mindi, Carly, Holly and Melissa, oh...YOU TOO, Brooke! Show me your favorite old Dress!

I scanned that pic today, I should have just emailed it directly to you.

I love everything about this post, the dress, the hair, the cake, the table, the memories, especially the word Bumpkin, that one is a classic (classically classic!)

Hollyhock Hill (sounds made-up doesn't it) but it makes for the perfect setting for your cute dress and hair. I didn't remember your hair being so dark when we were little. How cute you were/are!

So cute! As Shauna said it does have that Laura Ingalls magic going on. So funny to think of our girls rolling their eyes at the way we dress them and do their hair. Great post.

To me you look like Holly Hobby :) Adam always talks about Hollyhock Hill. I LOVE that you all still have sunday dinner around the same table as 17 years ago...that is a great family memory!

P.S. we are warm again over here today :) I really don't know what else could break at this house...shees.

Oh man. I am really going to have a hard time with the dress thing! You are super cute!

Wait, what is the tag? A nasty old picture of me with my awful hair in my favorite old dress... or just a favorite dress? I don't know if I get it.

Lisa Cannon said...

Beck - you still look the same. You looks so cute and I LOVE the hair. What were our moms thinking??? I could post some real winners!

Tiffany said...

Adorable! I used to have a very similar dress with apron, and my sister had that EXACT hairdo. I would have loved that hairdo, but my curls would now allow.....sigh.

amanda said...

Is that at your old old house. I don't remember that wallpaper. I love the dress and the hair. So cute.

I have the table and the dress. (It's in a box in the basement waiting for Tally to play dress-up, as you almost wore it out!)
