You may know I do delve into my family's history quite a bit. Finding stories from long (and not so long) ago, finding photos, letters or other things. I am the only one in our family of three who is really this interested.
According to my mother, my brother is not that into it and my sister is interested, but not to the extent I am. So, when my mother was clearing away a few things, there was quite a distinction between what she got and what I got. My sister got the tapestry making stuff (nope, not for me, I will stick to knitting and crocheting and sewing) and I got the baby comb. There used to be a baby brush as well, but that has been long gone.
Apart from that though, my mother had another treat for me. Her wedding gloves! She wanted to give me something else as well, but that too had been lost. Or had it, because an hour after the gloves she bolted upstairs and into a room to open a drawer to open a box and there was the piece that kept her veil in place during the wedding.
I will take it to a framer's today to have both pieces framed. It will take pride of place together with their wedding photo.
