An Heirloom Baby Gown and a Giveaway!

Today, for White Wednesday, 
I'm sharing about a family heirloom baby gown. 

We found this baby gown in the family trunk 
along with some other heirloom items . . . . 
a crocheted bedspread 
made by The Captain's grandmother 
along with some of her crochet supplies 
and an old crocheted handbag,
some old wood hangers, 
 a few other keepsakes and some family photos.

I also love the little pink rose baby hanger;
I can't remember where we got it.
I love the details on this baby gown.
It hangs on a dresser in our shabby chic guest room.

We're not sure who wore it or who it belonged to . . . . .

Maybe it was this little girl,
The Captain's grandmother . . .

or one of these sweet babies . . . 

or maybe this adorable little girl,
The Captain's aunt . . .

I can easily get tearful when looking at old photos.
Just looking at sweet little babies at the beginning
of their lives, and now they are no longer with us.
Photos of their memories, enjoying life.

Thanks for stopping by today 
and sharing some family treasures with me.

I'm also celebrating 
my one year blog anniversary
and will be announcing A Vintage Rose Giveaway
later today, in the next post.
A burlap bag full of vintage treasures!
and a 
$20 gift certificate to Saltbox Treasures etsy shop.

Stop by the next post here and 
just leave a comment to be entered!

Have a great week!
