It’s Homecoming week here…the kids dress crazy. Kalissa, our 16 year old daughter, loves the hoopla of it all.
Monday was tacky day. They were supposed to wear anything that looked tacky. I found this brightly colored piece of clothing at the thrift store for $1.50. It definitely fit the tacky theme.
Today it was back in time….
She’s wearing my wedding dress. If that isn’t a “blast from the past”, I don’t know what is! It’s wrinkled…I offered to press it but she declined the offer. It’s a bit sentimental to see my daughter in my dress…I wore it 25 years ago. My mom made my dress. She did a wonderful job…she did pass down the love of sewing to me…but no way, no how does that translate into loving to sew clothes. The love of sewing clothes was passed to my sister. She does amazing work too. I am glad I got the quilting bug instead. Amazingly, all my quilts always fit and if they don’t I can just add a border.
Kalissa spent much of the morning working on her hair do…which turned out AMAZING. I wish the camera lighting had been better so you could see it.
Tomorrow she is suppose to wear purple which reminds me….I am suppose to have a costume altered for the event. I best get to living in the present and go get that done.
