This is me at five or six years old. The reason I place this photo is because of fellowblogger "De tante van Tjorven" had put a photo of herself as a child in a blue knitted dress and asked if anyone else had worn knitted clothes in their youth. I remembered this picture of me at nursery school with my blue knitted dress with all kind of colored stripes in the top. I was very fond of this dress that my parents had bought for me and when the professional photographer came to school to make pictures, I wanted to put on my most beautifull dress. I can remember the photographer arranged this setting by putting me behind an easel to paint a picture, which I didn't do, so he helped a little bit by painting some, in my opinion "stupid" flowers. I only then held the brush on the paper and made no move, so this "piece of art" is not mine.
My mother knit a copy of this dress for my doll as a surprise for my birthday which made me very happy.
I kept the doll's dress a long time and had handed it over to my daughter for her doll, but can't find it anymore at my messy attic.
