Cousins Cute

Danielle and Nikki come up the front walk, sharing radiant smiles. They really had a fun time modeling and their auntie and I enjoyed helping them dress up for pictures. These matching dresses were found at a local thrift shop for $5.00 each. Nubby silk and fully lined, they were hand-made by someone who excelled in needlework. The girls were so tiny we had to cinch them with safety-pins in the back, but who cares. We were having fun.


Tia seemed to think she belonged in this picture, so we let her be. If we'd wanted a dog in the picture, she wouldn't have cooperated!


Fastening pearls and comparing matching French manicures.


Sweet sixteen. . .beautifully sweet. . .cousinly perfect. . .good friends.
