Tussen die veld blommetjies...

This is Ouma Alma's dress that she wore in the 1900's. 
I remember when I was younger I use to play with it, parading around the house, feeling like a princess; although to the eyes of others it seemed as if I was drowning in the dress. 
I grew up and forgot about the silly old dress-up box in which the dress was kept. While spring cleaning I found it and I marveled at it's vintage elegance. I immediately put it on and the person facing me in the mirror was no little girl, in fact it was a woman who 'owned' the dress...
