Can We Turn Back Time Please?

There are times when I wish my daughters, 
now 17 and 20 years old,
were still little girls.
When they were younger, I loved dressing them
in homemade "Little House on The Prairie" type outfits.

When I see dresses like these...

My heart melts...

...and makes me want to turn back time... I can dress my little girls
in these precious, feminine, modest outfits.
Hey, hopefully I'll have lots of grand daughters some day.

Tell me you don't think these are adorable.

Would you like to know more about the person
who designs and sells patterns for these

Read about Dawn Hansen here at:

Then visit her website at:

Please come back and tell me what you think.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Warm Country Blessings,

That top dress is the most precious thing. I wish I were a good sewer!

Oh, those are just so beautiful - I love that style of dress. I dress in skirts just about all of the time even around the homestead, but of our two daughters just one enjoys dressing in "pretty" dresses.
She would love these!

Oh, Christa~
Aren't her patterns simply adorable!?! Thank you for the links and I sure hope I win ~ I would love to sew some of those up for my two little grands!
Have a blessed and peaceful weekend, my friend!

I love those little dresses. See I only had a boy and there's just not much for them. But, now I have a granddaughter!! It was so much fun on her last birthday she asked me to make her a "Laura Ingall" nightgown and night cap! So great.
As for turning back time, no thanks. The Lord has brought me through so much and has not given up on me, even when I rebelled. I'm just so thankful to be right here, right now. As David said in one of his Psalms, "The boundary lines have fallen in pleasant places for me."

Sooooo cute!!! I should take out my sewing stuff and create for my Emma...before it's too late!! Thank you for the nudge Christa! Soooo pretty!

Glad to see you are back at blogging...I missed you sooo much!

Thank you so much for the lovely post. I am honestly overwhelmed by your kindness and sweet words. I'm so happy that you discovered my website and that you are enjoying my designs.

Oh, Mrs.Smith,

How darling. I love the top one especially. I should make on to put in my hope chest. If the Lord blesses me with little girls some day I definitely want them to wear dresses like these.

Thank you for posting, we have missed your posts.
In Christ,
Hannah Noel
