My Daddy made this Doll Cradle for me. It was Heart shaped, painted pink, and has roses decals on it. My Dad was always making things, and had his own dark room equipment, & he was a Military Police Photographer in WW2.
Here, I'm at my 'real' Mother's Moms, my Grandma Maragett McDowell's house. She was a Piano Teacher, and when I was in Junior High, she taught me to play a little on that piano behind me in this picture. My JR. High was just on the other side of the street. Unfortunatley, I hadn't been too interested in the piano, because CUTE boys were more important to me at that age! And I didn't go there very often before that, since our Mother left when I was 2 or 3. So, I didn't feel close to that Grandma like I should have then. But later, she became precious to me!
Notice the old rubber nipple on the glass bottle! I remember biting them right off! LOL!
