The First Head Dress

Here is the picture of the head dress to go with the over dresses in my last blog.

1 hatThe hat is on my large doll and is too big for her, as you see..  It will not cover the face of the girls but the vail comes almost to the face in front and down the back to almost the waist.  This one is Gina’s – you can tell by the white lace around the bottom.  Now I have to cut out the vail for Dyhana’s – her hat has lace to match the lace on her dress.  There are two more head dresses and they are not as large as this one.  They are on head bands and I have those ordered but it will be a week or more before they get here.  Hope the girls have fun playing with these.  Gina’s mother used to love playing dress up with the ones I made for her years ago, remember Becca?  I don’t think any of them were this fancy were they?  Have a great day!

About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.

    I played dress up when I was young and I would have been thrilled no end to have had such lovely works of art! Those little girls are blessed to have you, Carol.

    • Thank you, Rosemary. Nancy lived at my grand mothers for a short time when we little and she used to come to my house and we would play store in my mother’s closet. One would be the owner of the store, usually me because I have always hated getting dressed and undressed and Nancy would be the customer. She would pick out a dress and try it on, then pretend to buy it and take it to the other bedroom. We would spend hours doing that and empty my mothers closet. My mother had more tolerance with us than I would ever have. Nancy sit likes to shop for clothes and I still hate it. I am sitting here in my living room and watching the humming birds at the feeder just out side the window. I love watching them. The males have just come back and the females will be coming soon. The males come first to scout out the good feeding spots before their mate come in time for nesting.
