Special Things with Shelley

This post is brought to you by my mom Shelley! She is going to share with you in her own words a few of her special belongings today: 

The Doll Heads. 

  • Where they came from: Each of these heads were purchased at an auction from a doll museum at the coast. 
  • Why it’s special: Because I went to this auction with a good friend, and they’re unique. They’re part of a doll history. Each is different. Plus they creep people out, but not as much as the box of doll parts that I had to get rid of. They take up less room than a bunch of whole dolls. 

The Fat Lady Spoons:

  • Where it came from: My great-grandmother Stoups’ family, Minnie May Stoup. They’re all engraved. 
  • Why it’s special: They’ve been in the family a long time, and they’re really cool. And don’t you think Fat Lady spoons are kind of funny?

The Family Shotgun

  • Where it came from: Your great-grandmother Davis. She had this to kill varmints
  • Why it’s special: It’s really cool. Although I think if you tried to shoot it, you’d probably blow your head off. 

Dining Room Table and Chairs

  • Where it came from: This belonged to my Grandma Sophie, one of my favorite people ever. 
  • Why it’s special: We always had great holidays at her house, with all my cousins, and we’d all sit around this table – and I got to put it in my house. 

Great-Great Grandfather’s Cabinet.  

An actual conversation about this cabinet: 

me: what was his name again? 

mom: Something Davis.

me: Thanks.

  • Where it came from: This is passed down to the Davis boy who will keep the Davis name going.
  • Why it’s special: It’s pretty and ornate and it is significant in a line of men who have all been woodworkers. The lineage of carpenters through the generations.

Thank you for reading! And thanks to my Mom Shelley for helping out with this today.
