Fun Monday - Blue Forever

The Hula Girl at Growing Older But Not Up is this week's Fun Monday hostess. For our Fun Monday assignment, Hula Girl is asking us to show those pieces of clothing we just can't part with, whether we wear them or not.

I have not worn this particular article of clothing for sixty some years. You might recognize the little blue suit worn by Little Budgee (that's me) from my wife. Molly's post last week. Considering the age of the corduroy suit, this piece of clothing is in relatively good condition. My mother saved this little blue suit and encouraged us to have our son's pictures taken in the suit.



When Dean had a lovely child of his own, our daughter-in-law suggested that our first granddaughter wear the blue suit for picture-taking. Doesn't she look lovely in her grandpa's suit? The tradition of the Little Budgee Boy suit will continue as the little blue suit is washed and ready for our youngest granddaughter to wear as well as her little brother or sister.

Grandpa's girl does look lovely in Grandpa's Little Budgee Boy suit. You can't quite tell from the picture, but she is on her tippy-toes.

What a great tradition! My 39 year old brother is about to become a father for the first time, and my mother is repairing his little baby suit so that his son can wear it for a picture. Thanks for sharing and playing along on Fun Monday!

Love the equal opportunity Little Budgee Boy suit--all the grands get to model. Sure beats that christening dress that both boys and girls wear--much to the chagrin of SOME fathers. . .

Oh how sweet!! And how lovely to have something to pass down the generations!

I hope you have a wall in your house with all the wearers of the suit' pictures! WHen it gets too fragile to wear, you need to frame it and hang it along with the photos!

What a neat idea to pass the toddler's clothes down to other family toddlers to have their pictures taken wearing those.

Nice post. Enjoyed the pictures.
