Three White Favorite Things

These are three cherished mementos I have that were passed down to me from my mother.
Maria DeChellis DePasquale was my great-grandmother.
Framed by my mother is one of my g-grandmother's stockings along with a binding she used for my grandmother, Jean, when she was a newborn baby.
Binding was used on babies a long time ago (and are making a comeback!) to support the baby and give them
and added sense of security. They also believed their
babies would have straighter backs.

This is a picture of my grandmother, Jean,
my aunt, Deddie and my mother, Rosemary,
on the right.

The brooch belonged to Jean.

Love, Mom and Dad
(We spelled your name with one "r" because
you are a blend of Dad and me...
"D" for David and "aren" for Karen.)
