Project 52-Week 2: Made with Love





Everything in this picture was Made with Love..........


About the doll bed.....When the Christmas season of 2005 rolled around, we were pretty broke.  My hubby was unemployed except for the small side jobs he could pick up and in January he was about to begin his last semester of Bible College. Our daughter was 2 and our son was 6 months old and if we wanted to give them any gifts for Christmas, we were going to have to be creative!  I remember my husband working late at night, outside under our carport, using scraps from his side jobs to make this adorable little bed for her special baby doll.  I used an extra pillow-sham and scrap fabric to make a tiny quilt and bedding.  Rough times but sweet, sweet memories. =)  


The dress she's wearing was actually my dress!  My mother made every stitch of this smocked dress by hand, even down to the button holes.  It is absolutely gorgeous and is something I treasure!  During my mom's pregnancy with me, she spent 52 days on bedrest in the hospital because of placenta previa.  To keep herself busy, she hand-sewed many, many beautiful things, one of which was this dress.  (She also made this quilt!)  What's even more amazing is that she was on medication that made her hands continuously shake!  Both of my daughters have worn it, and who knows, maybe one day I'll have granddaughters to wear it. {sniffle:sniffle}




And of course, our little Lucy....our sweet blessing made by a loving God.  Psalm 139:14 says, "I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made."  We are loving every moment with this little cutie-pie!  =)


What comes to your mind when you think of the phrase, "Made with Love?"  What would you photograph?

  18. I miss the days of making wonderful little surprises for the kids. They get older and don't appreciate the simple things so much. When my oldest son was about 5, he needed new rubber boots, and we were talking about where to look for them. He was so used to us DIYing, sewing, etc, he was confused, and asked, "Can't Mom just make them?"

    Baby feet are SO precious. Enjoy that little Lucy... she'll be getting married about day after tomorrow. ;-)

  20. Laine! I love that your mom made that and that you and both your girls have worn it. I believe those are the true treasures. And the little feet in that last shot? Stop it. Stop it right now! ;)
