My Grandmother's Book

This ornament is dedicated to my grandmother's autograph book which she had as a child living in Sweden. Most of the entries are in Swedish and many dated back to 1902-1903. She came to America by boat with her husband (my grandfather) and the two children they had at the time (my mother and uncle). They landed at Ellis Island in New York City and eventually ended up in northwest Pennsylvania where I grew up. They had four more children and very sadly my grandmother died at a very young age, I never got to meet her, but my mother told me many stories of her life both in Sweden and America. She was a very loving woman who loved her children very much. My son and I put flowers on her, my grandfathers and uncle's graves every spring.
