This weekend, my family reminded me that I had yet to share a look at a couple of little treasures my mom gave to us. This antique child-sized rocking chair was my mom's chair when she was a little girl. With apologies to Mom, if my childhood stuff is now "vintage," Mom's childhood stuff is antique.
I have an adorable photo of my mom sitting in her chair as a child, but I can't recall where I stored it at the moment. My brain is in the vintage category too.
Just to give you an idea of the size of the rocking chair, here is one of my daughter's dolls sitting in the chair.
And here is Mom's potty chair. And you thought it was hard cleaning that little plastic potty chair!
I have tucked these chairs away in a closet for now, because my kids have a remarkable ability to break things that have survived for decades. (I admit I've broken a few vintage dishes myself.)
Do you have any similar family heirlooms?
