Throwback Thursday

My regular readers will remember that I recently "found" this lovely doll quilt made for me by my paternal grandmother in about 1958. Does that date make it an antique now? Does that mean that I'm also an antique?

I wasn't sure how to best display it, but for now it is draped over my mother's rocking chair. Somewhere in my family photos is a picture of my mom sitting in this very chair in the l920s in Wisconsin.  My understanding is that her father (a carpenter) made the chair for her.

Now I need to find an old doll to add to this little scene.


  1. That's a perfect place for the quilt, and a doll would only make it better.

  2. Yellow and blue and white... always a great combination ..... lovely!
