Pretty, isn't it? I wish I knew who gave it to her and what she used it for. Now it has a place of honor in my heritage cabinet... where I store all the knick-knacks that came down through our families or are a part of our history.
ADDITION TO LAST WEEK'S TREASURE CHEST THURSDAY POST:
I mentioned in last week's Treasure Chest Thursday post which was about bronzed baby shoes that I had to wear a special device on my feet when I was a baby. I was just a couple of months old when the pediatrician's office discovered that my right foot was turned inward at the middle of my foot. So I had to wear this plastic disk on my feet for awhile, and by the time I started learning to walk, my right foot was fine. Well, I said I would locate the one picture we have of that contraption. Let me confess something now... it took some looking to find this picture... and I'm embarrassed to say the reason why was that I had scrapbooked this picture WITHOUT SCANNING IT FIRST! Let me just quote Maya Angelou here and say, "When we know better, we do better." Now I know better, and I scan all old pictures before scrapbooking them. Anyway, that is the reason the word "Dad" is across the picture - I cannot remove that without damaging the photo. The photo is now scanned, but with "Dad" forever across it.
