girl’s day

This pair of dolls called ‘hina doll’ were originally given to me from my grand parents when I was one year old. As I mentioned in this post, we display them to celebrate girl’s day (3rd of March) and wish for girl’s growth and health. They have been displayed at home every year and my mum continued to do so for the last 40 years, even after I came over here. This year, my parents kindly posted them to us to cerebrate for Sabrina. Beautiful silk kimono tucked in to carved wood. Individually hand crafted. Tradition and family history continue to a new generation. Sabrina’s great grand parents gift. I feel quite overwhelmed.  
Have a lovely girl's day, Sabrina! xm

    Hi Makiko; Sabrina really looks a lot better and very pretty. How special it must be for you to receive that gift, especially since you have had so much challenges to overcome in recent months. Have a wonderful day, kind regards, Simone
