Doll bed

This is another family heirloom -- like the kiddie car -- made by my great-grandfather. The doll bed has served many a doll in the family. That's me making the bed. I'm sure that my parents hoped that having this doll bed -- and making the doll bed -- would encourage me to learn to make my own bed. No such thing happened.

At least the dolls had a neat bed to sleep in ...

edit: I have been corrected on the information about the doll bed: Josephine Cooper's father Michael Schaaf made it for his granddaughters, Dorothy and Gladys.
