Pink is for girls ...
I've always loved old things. And so does my daughter. Some years ago, my mom got rid of this sweet little Teddy Bear planter she was given in the hospital when I was born. I asked for it because I loved the sentimental connection and I loved it because it was obviously old! I stuck it in the basement until this morning, when I brought it up and washed off the dust. I made a quick trip to Kowalski's for pink sweetheart roses. When I got home, I arranged the roses in the planter. I'll be taking them to our daughter, who just gave birth to our first grandchild, NORA KATHLEEN ... What a wonderful name! And what a wonderful day. Welcome to the world, Nora! And now I'm a grandma!
(NOTE: This precious vintage BABY'S FIRST planter is from Kay Finch Pottery of California, ca 1940 - 1950's. The heart shaped nose is typical of Kay Finch pieces. Kay Finch Ceramics was based in California and operated from 1939 through the early 1960's).
