reviving the tradition
Cute! I just started following your blog a few days ago, as I stumbled upon it while blog hopping. I just love that you have a hope chest going for Abigail. I had a hope chest when I was a young teenager; mine was a decorated cardboard box bought from the local Roses store. I have two baby granddaughters and really should think about doing something like this for them! I've enjoyed going back through your posts!
I'm so glad you found the blog! My hopechest was also a decorated cardboard box, an Washington apple box that my mother fashioned into a chest and covered with contact paper. My mother was really talented at so many things. I hope you'll visit often.
Oh, wow! That is an adorable example of needle felting!
