There are things that got boxed in the '80's that I still haven't seen and don't even know if we still have. During one mudslide scare when there was fears that the house might be hit the neighbors came and boxed everything or put it in grocery bags.
When I came back the only thing that was left was the refrigerator. I never did get things put back together. Anyway, finding this box was a surprise.
Rather amazing that the dress has survived those mishaps let alone not being made into nests by mice.
This was my mother-in-laws wedding dress in the '40's and then mine in the '60's. I had to have it shortened because she is taller than I am and just a bit taken in at the waist.
Don't know if I could get in the dress today. Maybe, but I'm afraid to handle the material very much because it feels very fragile. That is the box the dress was in when my mil gave it to me. I'm surprised the box is still in one piece.
Kristine said she would take the dress to a cleaners and see what they would advise. I guess I will search around on the internet and see if I can find some good ideas for storing the dress. eHow has some good ideas that would be good for storing things.
My favorite tea cozy.
The chickens are looking very fluffy and fat.
Wonder if that means they are going to start molting.
