Easter Comments

Wearing new clothing at Easter may seem vain, but the idea is that with the celebration of resurrection, all things are made new. And, it's the beginning of spring, which also reminds us of newness. Above, you see Gracie Girl in a lovely pink outfit with a pretty little bow on her head.
While the W's were visiting in TX in late March, the Rowdy Girls arrived and Marmee made matching Easter dresses for all three Grandladies. Here you see all three girlies modeling them over their pants on a cool March day while Buzz Lightyear, still wearing his PJ's, entertains.
Accessories will complete the outfits. Accessories are so important to every lady's total look. Notice the Nannie blanket shawl that Emme wraps so artfully.

Roo knows that a hat commands attention and can definitely emphasize the eyes. It's essential on a bad hair day!

Jonah understands the importance of a well placed hat for men.

Gathering Easter Eggs is the perfect chance to sport new fashions, as  shown by both Roo and Em while they practice egg gathering in Grandpa and Marmee's back yard.

Fabric is cotton, "Grandmother's Hankies", and "Teapot Prints" from Hancocks. Embroidery floss by DMC. Smocking plate is "Firelight".  Ribbon by Offray.  Stitching by Marmee.

 Egg hunting practice does not necessitate fashion clothing for young men.  It's all about the prizes in the eggs.

May the One who makes all things new, bless you this Easter.
