Conjuring up cherished Family Heirlooms out of whole cloth...
shoes that have long ceased to fit, ...
Silver Spoons that your parents used to put in your mouth...
Make for rattling good stories to tell as you display your treasured booty for friends and family. ;-D
My Mother was a dedicated maker of needlepoint, and crochet, and she made this Last Supper Scene sometime in the 1970's.
The Bootie, the 2 pairs of shoes, the spoons, and the rattle, are all mine, and at least 50 years old. ;-D
On the bottom of 1 of the white pair my Mom had written, probably about 1970, the names of my sisters and I, an indication that that pair, at least, was worn by all of us, in 1960 (Me!), 1965, and 1968.
On the inside of the other pair is a manufacturers stamp that identifies the shoes as Mrs. Day's Ideal - Intermediate.
The spoon on the left is labeled as a Gerber Silver Plate, and has 2 other markings I can't read.
The spoon on the right is labeled as Oneidacraft Deluxe Stainless.
