MY first "from the Vintage Vault" giveaway

Happy Sunday! "This is the day that the Lord hath made. Let us rejoice and BE GLAD in it(emphasis mine:)." Psalm 118:24 So glad I was able to get out of bed this morning in time for Lifegroup(aka Sunday School) and today's service! I truly do miss it when I am not feeling well.  Thank You Father for getting me there!
Yesterday,  Goose went to Grammy's House and I spent a lil' time with a good friend. Actually, she's ALMOST my twin! Life has been a little easier for me, since she moved to town:) I did manage to snap a couple of pics while she helped me with a project. So without further ado......
The pictorial begins!

A summer nightgown too big to wear(Also gifted:)
