Happy Birthday, Ryan! & a Collection of Porcelain Booties

This sweet little porcelain bootie is special to me.
It commemorates the day that Ryan Emery joined our family.
Seven years ago today!

I have booties for each of our four daughters
and all but the last three grandchildren.

The lady that made these beautiful booties sold the business and the new owners are not currently operating. I am very sad. Through the years I have purchased many for special keepsake gifts
and really would like to have them for all of our grandchildren.

Happy Birthday, Ryan!

Look how much he's grown!

Ryan is a handsome young man and with that red head, Ryan is a perfect name! Love those booties! How sweet! It would be nice if you could get them for grandchildren too. Maybe you could find them on the internet somewhere.

Happy Birthday Ryan. What a nice young man he has grown into. Lorraine, I love those booties. I hope you can locate someone who can make you the three others you need.

Ann said...

Happy Birthday Ryan. Those booties are precious. It would be shame not to be able to add to your collection.

Susan said...

Oh, LDH, Ryan is a handsme little fellow. The booties are so darling, too. By the way, what have you heard about the little girl in Haiti? My niece just returned from there,doing service work. Sincerely, Susan

What a precious collection.

My parents had my shoes dipped in bronze, and made to bookends.
My brothers were dipped in bronze and made into a stand up picture frame.
What I'd give to have those, but they've been lost after my mother passed and the house was sold.

Have you tried to order for the extra grands, maybe you can find them online.

I think they are darling.
