When I go to antique stores I look for old photos. I love to find baby portraits in good condition.
I love the old-fashioned dresses they wore (the girls and the boys!) and their sweet expressions.
I always wonder how something that was so precious to someone at one time wound up for sale in an antique store?
A good friend of mine recently had a baby boy so I decided to turn this baby portrait into a card for her.
I thought it was neat how the “b flat” symbols resemble small letter “b”s for “baby”.
A handwritten note…
Tied up with string and a tiny pressed flower…
Wrapped in soft yarn and trimmed with a tag.
Congratulations to the “B” Family!
