THE STORY BEHIND THIS CRADLE
Sunday, December 16, 2012
I brought this cradle back with me from Pa. two years ago when Mom died at age 84. It was my Mom's doll cradle that my Grandpa made for her when she was about 4 or 5 years old. It has the original paint on it. I don't want to repaint it until it's absolutely necessary. Mom bought the baby doll and put her in it. The cradle was on Mom's fireplace hearth and so I felt our hearth was the place for it to be as well. I added the green and red "blankie" (napkin) as the doll's blankie. She wanted to be in the Christmas spirit too. So, I just wanted to share that memory with you.
