This antique swan toy was loaded in the truck ready to be taken to the thrift store when my friend decided to rescue it and bring it home. She wasn't exactly sure why... it had been her father's toy as a child and she just didn't feel like they should let it go. Shortly after that she & her husband discovered they were expecting, and it was a big surprise! So when she asked if she could bring her daughter over for a photo on the old family swan, I was so happy! What a neat story, and so glad her daughter had the chance to enjoy this heirloom! We also took advantage of the beautiful fall day for some leaf-throwing & mother-daughter pics! Read on to see some of my favorites!
Elona, I adore this girl and I know you do too! It's such a joy to watch her grow. I'm sure she keeps you on your toes! Good thing she's so stinkin' cute, right?! Thanks for coming by! We'll have to do it again soon!
