This is my grandma, circa1926. Her mother made her this ethnic dress, as well as one for her sister and cousin, to wear at the weekly dances Gram went to with them. Unbelievably, this dress has been in the family to this day. Her daughters have worn it, her granddaughters have worn it, and now her great granddaughter has worn it. There are still one more great granddaughter and now a great-great granddaughter who will someday wear it.
This is why I scrapbook.
The next time you see this photo it will be in a layout, along with all the photos of the girls in my family in the same dress. Yes, I finally managed to get my hands on those photos and get them scanned!
