Isn't it perfect? Okay, so it needed a bit of cleaning up but it was nothing that I couldn't handle. Tighten a few screws, give it a good cleaning and polish, add a bit of batting and some new fabric and it was good as new.
See? Not a total transformation, just a bit of new life. Though as I was working on it I couldn't help but wonder about the little girl it may have belonged to before. Did she have a favorite baby that she spent countless moments rocking to sleep in this cradle? I like to think so, I like to think that those beautiful memories come with pieces like this just waiting for our littles to add their own special moments to its history.
Kaitlyn thought it was the perfect place for her baby Lucy to spend a quiet afternoon. "shhh...my baby is sleeping." she whispered to me as I quietly snapped this picture. Just exactly the moment I was hoping for.
