They say eyes are the windows to the soul, but I think they can also be windows to the past. After all, the eyes of a child in an old photograph still shine as brightly as the day it was taken, capturing their life across time. This Steiner girl has such big, bright, clever blue eyes that one almost feels like she sees everything around her. Soft coppery curls float around her shoulders, framing her sweet face with its rosebud smile. She's sitting pretty in a lacy silk frock. A matching bonnet completes the picture, but as with those faded photographs, it's the love in her eyes that really makes her special! Indeed, this special petite Steiner bebe is all decked out in her best pale pink silk and lace party dress. Looking at her simply evokes an old time song and a sweet feeling of love and comfort. If you truly appreciate your French bebes in frilly, period appropriate lacy frocks, you’ve landed on the right site.
