Baby rattle

This old fashioned rustic looking baby rattle was found in my Papa's desk after he passed away.  It had been made by my dad 30 something years earlier to announce to my Gram and Papa that I was on the way.  They would be grandparents!

I love the creativity and excitement that it shows on my Dad's part.  I love that my Papa kept it in  his desk through all of those years.  What a sweet treasure this little rattle is!


  1. What a treasure!

    I am so sorry for your loss, and how you are all still grieving. But I love how you have been writing with so much joy and pleasure in living (on both blogs, even thought I am not commenting much these days!), and that is honoring to your dad too.
