Great Grandma's Gloves
This is my Great Grandma Josephine Carroll Christensen. She was beautiful lady. Since her family was from Syria, we called her Sithoo which means grandmother in Lebanese. Her daughter (my grandma) gave me this amazing leather-like gloves that she wore in the early 1940s. Some of the stitching is coming out so I know she wore then quite a few times. Her hands were very tiny. I can't wear them because my hand is bigger, but I love looking at these and thinking of my sweet great grandmother, Sithoo.
