  1. Surely it would have been easier for the kiddie to take the trousers off first, but I suppose the picture wouldn't have been so cute then :)

  4. Thought it was time to check back here for more of your stereoscopes. It looks like that kid is being sewn onto his mother's apron. I'd like to see him cut those strings.

  5. These are so cute.
    It's the only way she could get the child to hold still. "Don't make me stitch your behind."

  7. These are adorable. What a full day a mom had back then, not to say mom's today don't have a full day. Different issues today.

    Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment. Happy to meet you.

"Stay" is a charming word in a friend's vocabulary
(A.B. Alcott). Stay and visit awhile. Your comments mean a lot to me.
