A Gift from the Past

Who was the little girl who wore this white linen dress so long ago? Who lovingly sewed each precise, tiny stitch by hand? What was the occasion for such a fine dress?

I found this small dress in an antique shop in Historic Houston Heights. I purchased it for The Bunny Bungalow because for me it had that "awww" factor.

Old things fill your head with questions, they set you to wondering. You may never know the answers about their past but they present you with the opportunity to use your imagination to construct magical stories of your own. Perhaps this is better than knowing. Isn't this the greater gift?
