Pamela

I would like to introduce you to my Great Granddaughter, Pamela (wink, wink) Pamela sized
Pamela has been in the family for about 7 years now but in a recent conversation with Uncle Dave, Claire (granddaughter) said that Pamela is actually 5 months old because she wants to keep her little. There have been times when I've felt the same way about my babies and grandbabies.
Recently Claire, Jenny (my daughter), and I went to an open house event of all the little antique stores in town. At one store Claire saw a double-decker baby bed that she liked. It was too pricey for Granny :) but at the last store we visited she discovered a vintage cradle in excellent condition except the bottom was missing. I knew it could be easily repaired and it was a bargain so we bought it.
Uncle Dave came to the rescue and replaced its dowels and added the new bottom. We will be adding some bedding and cute little handmade quilt that I have. Ta dah:

But that's not all...our neighbor, Wayne, saw the cradle and remembered that he had the perfect thing to go along with it. He came back carrying this highchair in all its precious vintage pinkness:

I hope Pamela will love vintage things as much as I do. Shhhh...lets keep it secret until Christmas Eve. I'm not sure if she reads my blog!! :)

update:

We gave Pamela her new bed and high chair and she just loved it!!

Those are so sweet. How bad I wish we could still have things like this all the time. Todays things are made so cheap.Great finds.

Pamela is such a sweetie...oh if we only could keep them from growing in leaps and bounds...*sigh*

I had a doll cradle exactly like that when I was little:)
