Re-Creating My Childhood Memories
Growing Up was a truly magical experience in my house. My mom and grandma really went the extra distance to create special memories for my sister and myself when we were little. I will never forget one Fall when my grandmother brought out a special something she had made for our Thanksgiving table. She had found an adorable miniature cast iron stove with little pots and pans and she also had made beautiful little Corn Husk dolls to look like us. Then she also made a little braided rug to set the stove on and create the perfect little scene. Of course she didn't stop there...she even baked tiny little loaves of bread to put in the oven. I played with that little stove and those dolls for hours that year and for many years after that. I was always so excited when mom brought out the box at Thanksgiving time that contained all the pieces to create that little scene. Sadly, somehow that box has come up missing after so many years. But thanks to the internet and a few mouse clicks I have been able to find an exact replica of that little stove and all it's accessories. I also found a wonderful resource for beautiful corn husk dolls which have been added to my cart. I can't wait for these treasures to arrive and to set up the little stove and the dolls. I know a certain little girl who is going to have a blast with it....just like her mama did a long time a go! Now I just need to make a little braided rug just like my grandma did....There is nothing quite like keeping family traditions alive.
