BC - Baby Karla's Shadowbox

BC - Baby Karla's Shadowbox

Finally, I found that the dress I was wearing in my first portrait was in one of the cardboard boxes. I assembled these items atop a fleecy baby blanket Mother made and decorated with puffy bunnies and other motifs. She crocheted the bonnet and added her fancy work to the little pink pillowcase. More bakelite toys bring nostalgia to the mix.

I assembled these three shadowboxes after mother was gone, so she never saw them. However, I know she would have been pleased that I have treasured the works of her hand and heart.
