Baby Doll and Good Mama Go Shopping


Baby Doll and Good Mother 
wandered into an antique mall one day.
Baby Doll found a pillowcase
hanging amidst countless other vintage linens
and pronounced it "mine!"

At first Good Mother did not agree
and explaining that it didn't "go" in Baby Doll's room
rehung it
amidst the countless other vintage linens.

As Good Mother continued to browse,
Baby Doll searched and found the case,
and again proclaimed it "mine!"

Good Mother glanced down,
and seeing the price tag,
hung it more determinedly than before
BEHIND
the countless other vintage linens.
(Perhaps I should rename Good Mother...)

As Good Mother continued to browse,
Baby Doll resumed her search
and found something else which caught her fancy
UNTIL
she spied THE pillowcase
BEHIND
the countless other vintage linens.

With a SQUEAL of delight
the newcomer linen was forgotten
and when Baby Doll DECREED the case, "MINE!" again,
Good Mama agreed...

Funny! She certainly knows her own mind, that little one! And yes, you are indeed Good Mama!

Smart little one, isn't she? Dang, how I wish I had all the pillowcases from my childhood. Seeing them in antique shops just hurts. I guess we will have to start making our own :)

Hey Fox and Cindy!
She is indeed a smart, little girl with her own opinion on things. Just wait until you hear the REST of the story!

Cindy, I know what you mean about seeing things in antique shops and thinking, I remember seeing stuff like that at Grandma's. Makes me wistful also. If you want to make some cases, Martha at Q is for Quilter often posts vintage embroidery patterns. She also mentioned a site by John Governale which has some AMAZING patterns. Here are the links:

This is a little girl after my own heart -- one with a penchant for vintage linens. That Baby Doll has very good taste!
