Handmade Memories from Grandma Mamie
If you follow my blog at all, you will quickly learn that my paternal Grandmother, Mamie Leota Pearl Wittenmeyer Phillips was my best inspiration in learning about crafts and so much more. She had a big heart, warm soul and a way to turn trash into treasure!! I wanted to share a special gift, a crochet dress she made for me when I was Seven years old. When each of my Grand daughters turned Seven, my plan was they would try on the dress and get their picture taken in it. One Granddaughter was growing fast and her "try on" was at age five. I have posted a picture of this dress for your enjoyment. This special dress was crochet in 1958. Don't bother doing the math....it's old!!!
