The buttons on their dresses were chosen from a button jar I inherited from my mother. It's one she got from her mother. That means the buttons most likely belonged to my granddaughters' great, great, grandmother!
You can tell that that news makes Becky and Bonnie very, very proud. Just look at those big smiles!
Here's another little thing I'm passing on from my mother: I embroidered the dolls' names on their chests. When I was a child I had a terrible time remembering names (still do!!) so my mom always wrote the names of each doll on their chest so when I asked repeatedly she could always provide the same answer. I think she was as bad with names as I am.
But the most important message for my granddaughters is on the back.
