Crocheted Cuteness

I love these little vintage crocheted clothes! I buy them whenever I find one at a reasonable price:
The last two I have found were at thrift shops!
Bloomers:
and dresses:
Colorful:
and cute!
I have them all hanging in the laundry room:

I have always heard that they were created as pot holders. I don't know about you, but I sure wouldn't want to hold a hot pot with only one of these little cuties as protection!
They make a sweet decoration, though.

Imagine the work that went to one of those. So sweet. p.s. I love the song Wives and Lovers too. I can't get it out of my head. Funny how that happens.

Another collection we share, Heidi! I love these little dresses. And no, there is no way I would use them on a hot pan!

Heidi, this is one of my favorite things to find! I love these little works of art! I'm with you, they don't make very good potholders because your fingers go right through those little holes. They sure are cute decorations though. Twyla
