When Old Becomes New Again

My precious grand-babies were both baptized this past Sunday.

This is Sarah. 

Isn't she adorable!

I especially love this little Christening gown she is wearing 
because 35 years ago it was part of my wedding gown.

The gown sat in my closet for 30 years.  
My daughter thought she would wear it at her wedding, but it really wasn't her style.  
A 1970's wedding gown is very different from those worn today.  

So what to do with this keepsake now?


let's recycle it.

 Let's take it all apart and put it back together, right down to the Chantilly lace trim, 
satin buttons down the back
and even the ribbon bow.

I can't take the credit for making this lovely creation, but I can take credit for the idea.

I love that something old can become something new again.
That nothing is wasted.
That life continues, even for an old wedding gown.

  1. What a wonderful way to recycle your wedding dress. Sarah is so cute. I have no grandchildren yet but can't daughter has been living with her French partner for 3 years, but not yet thinking of kids, my son still single. So it might be a few years.


I would love to hear from you!
