I Remember When! Christy Charlotte Shields Baker (Child #5, Daughter #4)
When I was about four years old, my mother made my sister Anna Ruth and I a doll house. It was a two story house made of card board. It was sectioned off with bedrooms, a kitchen, livingroom and dinningroom. I don't think it had a bath room. But it was great.
Mom Ma helped us make funiture from empty spools from thread and card board. A dinning room table with chairs. A couch, chairs and tables for the livingroom. We made table cloths and curtains with scraps of fabric that our grandmother had left over from her quilts.
We had little people that lived in our house.
I will never forget the look of saticfaction on my mothers face. The look of "I did a good job" even if I say so myself. Best of all was the pride we took in saying to others " Look what my mother did for me".
This is just one of many, many treasures of what " I Remember When".
