keepsakes

we've been having a clean out around here. deciding what is special enough to keep & what to give away or sell. we've put charlie's cradle on ebay, but two things i am absolutely keeping are mirka's first teeny-tiny, quadruple zero, pink onesie & a tshirt i had made up for her first birthday. before i packed them up, i wrote a couple of little notes to tuck away inside them. i imagine giving her a box of her own baby clothing one day, far into the future & look forward to her finding these love notes  from her mama. keepsakes.

  4. I love the little notes that you have put on them ... I have one box for each of my kids because there are just some things that are too special to part with!

  10. This is such a lovely idea. You kids will love this. I am so glad my mum kept certain clothes and toys from when we were kids. I know I will find it very hard to get rid of things (I'm terrible at throwing things away!). I'm sad in a way to hear that baby Charlie's craddle is for sale. I loved it so much.
    Good luck with all the packing & selling KK. xx
