Greg’s parents gifted Baby Girl Smith with a very thoughtful present — a beautiful armoire. They wanted to give her something she could grow with and take with her when she leaves our home for a home of her own. This armoire is truly fantastic. We came across it in a neat store in downtown Baltimore.
It is an antique piece from the British/Indian rule. The owner of the store, a humanitarian lawyer, purchased it from Rajasthan in North India and says that the armoire is about 110 years old. Made from teak wood and about 7 feet tall — this is a true wardobe in every sense of the word — it was such a beast to get home (so very heavy)! It reminds me of the armoire/wardrobe in the Chronicles of Narnia — just not as deep. : ) Thanks Dad and Mom for such a precious gift — we’re pretty sure it will be a very special piece for Baby Smith all her life!
