The doll bed was lovingly made by my grandfather for an older cousin. When she outgrew it, the bed passed to another cousin and so on until it came to me. I was the youngest granddaughter so here it stays. The stuffed animals were acquired through the years, the Raggedy dolls made by my mother. I still have the bed, the animals and the dolls. My childhood is gone. Grandaddy died years ago. Mom continues to make clothes for handmade dolls that are given to children in hospitals. While my childhood is long gone, the warm memories are never forgotten.
It has been a very long time since I’ve posted in the weekly photo challenge. About half way through my graduate studies blogging had to take a back seat, but now I’m finished with school. I have a job. It is demanding but I am happy to be working. And slowly I am working my way back to photography and blogging (hopefully). When I saw this week’s theme, I knew it was time to get back in the game! Hope you like the photo, and I look forward to seeing yours. :-)
Thanks to the WordPress Reader, I’ve been perusing other blogs to “catch up” on what I’ve missed while immersed in my studies. I see that this week’s photo challenge is “community.” My first thought was to skip this challenge and jump into it next week. But FrancineInRetirement‘s blog reminded me that “community” applies to many beings and things. So here is a shot that was taken about a week ago that certainly fits the bill. ;-) Thanks Francine.
