    A friend from my grade school days asked me to update her rocker and create something special for rocking her future grandchildren. She gave me free rein to design something and told me to “just surprise her.” We share the love of vintage china patterns and our collections both include patterns in a rose motif.

I can only imagine the joyous and memorable moments she will enjoy in this rocker.
