My Mom's parents owned Collier Furniture. In the store there was a crystal punch bowl. I'm not sure why, but my grandparents had the local photographer (Mr. Thorne) take Mom's picture in the punch bowl when she was six months old. When I was six months old, Mom borrowed the bowl from the family who had purchased it, and Mr. Thorne took my picture in it. By the time my oldest daughter, Ann was six months old there was a crack in the bowl and it was a family heirloom so her picture was taken by Mr. Thorne in a different bowl. Now my daughter Marissa's little one, Lila (named after my mother) is six months old and her picture was taken Saturday in a punch bowl. If you look carefully, you can see that all the babies are wearing the same bracelet.
