I found this little treasure in an antique mall in Tucson and just now noticed that along with "made in Germany", the owner had penned in the date:
Oct. 11, 1955.........the day before my 4th birthday!!!!
I guess this little girl knitting away was somehow meant to find its way into my heart and home! I have always loved these little German wooden figures, starting with the tiny angel candle holders that decorated all of our birthday cakes growing up. I have a few stashed away in a drawer somewhere which I must hunt for one of these days. Today is: finish up a certain papier mache project that is long overdue!!!!!! Fondly- Oolie
