Sentimental Sunday: Great Grandma Ada's Mirror and Doily
This hand held mirror once belonged to my Great Grandmother, Ada Steen Parker. She passed it on to my mother, who passed it on down to me. Mom said that it was once part of a set, along with a brush and comb, that Grandma Ada used in her bedroom. It definitely shows signs of wear and tear, but I love that I can look at it, and remember so many family stories...of how Grandma Ada cherished her family heritage, and worked very hard, especially during her years on the family farm in Perkins Township.
Another item that I recently came across was Great Grandma Ada's doily.
Grandma Ada embroidered her initials, ASP, onto the doily.
