Holiday ornaments from the December meeting


My wife’s grandmother was born around 1880.  Her doll was passed along to my wife, Franny, and, as near as we can guestimate, it dates back to about 1890, roughly 125 years ago.  We don’t know much about the doll except that my mother spruced up her dress about 40 years ago.

Check out what Peter Follansbee did with the yellow cedar we sent him!
