Tuesday's Treasure with Melody

I think I am still in time for Tuesday's Treasures with MELODY. My treasure today is nearly as old as myself. Those of you who have been with me from the beginning will remember this photo I posted of myself as a child. I was about 2 years old.
Well my treasure today is the little dress I am wearing. I still have it and apart from a few age marks it is in perfect condition. It was made for me by a family friend who was a tailor.
It is a beautiful soft swisse cotton voile and has two rows of beautiful cotton lace on the yoke and over the shoulder.
The fabric has a little green embroidered hail spot all over it with a self weave as well.
My daughter wore this little dress when she was a little girl too. It is so soft and pretty and I love that it is still with me after all this time. What's something, somewhere or someone you treasure today.
Blessings Michelle xx
