My "B" this week is for my precious grandson Brandt who enjoyed the California beach in July. He had a ball running in the sand and building sand castles with his cousins.
Welcome to Alphabe-Thursday hosted by the very creative Jenny Matlock. Check out her blog and visit other "Alphabe" participants. This week we are celebrating the letter "B" and Jenny has a very cute story on her blog for this second letter of the alphabet.
"B" also stands for this Baptismal gown that has been in our family since 1914 when my 95-year old mother was the first one to be baptized in this gown. Since then, my daughter, my grandson, and I have all been baptized in the same gown. It is a true family heirloom.
These shoes are the shoes my daughter, my grandson and I have all been baptized in. They date back to 1948 when I was born.
These religious books date back to 1921. My mother's prayer book along with my prayer book and Communion book are in this photo with a lovely Lenox basket.
My final "B" photo is of birthday cake decor dating back to the late 50's or early 60's. My mother saved many things and I'm glad that she saved these cute vintage pieces. Note the record player in this photo...do kids today even know what these are?
