He is Risen!






The Resurrection
Matthew 28: 5-7
5The angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified. 6"He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying. 7"Go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead; and behold, He is going ahead of you into Galilee, there you will see Him; behold, I have told you."…

Easter and Things


Isn't this one of the most wonderful times of the year?  Traditions, Family, Friends, Loved Ones gather.  What Easter Traditions do you celebrate?

I remember daddy always making sure that mama bought us a new outfit for church.  The whole wardrobe, dresses, gloves, crinolines, lacy socks and shiny patent leather shoes for we girls.  Suits, shirts and shoes if needed for the boys.


Downton Abbey


This picture is so old, stained and torn but brings back memories.  I really wanted this pink dress and remember the day mama took me to Sears & Roebucks to buy it.  My aunt worked there.  "Aunt Jinks" we called her.  So of course this is where we shopped.  This is the first time I can remember, notice I said, "I can remember, being a brat."

Dolly age 6 or 7

I pulled the tag off of that pretty pink dress with the satiny covered buttons!  She liked another dress on me and I wanted this one.  What did I do?  Well I pulled that tag off of it!  Yes me, I took the tag off thinking, "She'll have to buy this one now not that ugly one!"  Bad I was bad!  My Mama "Dot" was one of a kind that's for sure.  She said," I hope you don't think that will make me buy that one!" Then she proceeded to tell me that was wrong to do that.  We had a huge discussion of how she could ask them to replace that tag.  I thought, "I have gone and done it now." :(  Well you see who got the dress...laughing... Oh how I miss my mama.

Easter dress and mama had my hair cut.  I remember having to get used to the shorter version of my curly hair that they tried so hard to tame.  Funny the things you remember.

The tradition carried on with me when I married and had my beautiful little girls.  I would sew and make their Easter Dresses.  Daddy always had to contribute to them so therefore he would give me money to buy what was needed.  That usually was a crinoline to go under their new little creations.



I've made this one before for Carly she looked like Little Bo Peep.  May have made it for Catie also.  She always looked like she came off of "Little House on the Prairie".  I do need to scan some of the older photos of them.  They were adorable in their dresses.

Shopping for the Easter Meal now that was an adventure.  Shopping the Saturday before Easter with Mama "Dot" that was a treat.  One in which I am still observing, I must go grocery shopping and buy my ham.  If you want to see some of the menu items that we have on Easter visit Dolly is Cooking
