The story behind the dress above our bed: 87 years ago a little girl was given this cloak for her initiation into the historic “Campfire Girls”- for the next 10 +yrs she marked every major life achievement by the tradition of sewing on a commemorative bead she had earned for a good deed. This little dress is now heavy with the hundreds of her own hand-sewn-on symbols of pride – marking the formative years of a girl now long gone.
