Vintage Dresses for Anniston Ruth

I was so excited to find out we were having a little girl, which we have decided to name Anniston Ruth. (The "Ruth" is after my great-grandmother, or "Ruthie" as we called her.) I was ecstatic for it to be a girl so I could dress her up in all of the beautiful smocked dresses my grandmother made for me when I was a little girl. I am so glad she saved them all! I have so many pictures of me wearing all of them and now I can pass them down to Anniston. How special! Most of them are still in great condition for having been made in the early '80's:) Here are some pictures of a few of them:

This one is adorable. I'm giving grandmom a sweet kiss on the cheek. The dress I have on says "Kelly" on the front with balloons around it. I still have this one- made specially for me!

Allie gave me this creative idea from a blog she had read: I bought a frame at Hobby Lobby, some cute material for the backing, and pinned one of the dresses grandmom made when I was itty bitty. How perfect that it matches the colors I'm doing in the nursery. It's going to look so cute hanging on the wall!
