Next week is my Grandmother's family reunion......# 106.
So this time of year turns to thoughts of my Grandmother.
She died before I was born and when my Grandfather remarried they must of divided up some of her things.
This was my Dad's pick.....strange for a man to pick, maybe?
This is a porcelain doll head she bought herself.
Love the sweet little face.
It always was in the secretary in our living room.
The note can be found inside the head. It is handwritten by my Grandmother, she wrote that "one time when I was maybe 9 or 10 we came to Charleston I was given 25 cents to spend"
I guess that would be about 1902, so now I need to go read her sister, (Aunt Annie) diaries and I probably can tell the exact date she bought it.
She was special to my Dad and she is to me too.
She hangs out in my living room watching over things, in my little corner cabinet.
Dad, I am sure glad you chose her to come home with you.
