It’s impossible to tell for sure who made this particular wreath. This wreath was given to my dad along with some other pictures. Based on the pictures that were part of this collection my guess is that it was made by my 2nd great grandmother, Paulina (Wesenberg) Brockhaus. Paulna was Pat & Grace’s grandmother. Regardless of who made the wreath, it’s a bit surreal having an actual part of an ancestor hanging on my office wall.
Stay tuned for next week’s blog post where I’ll talk about how my great grandfather made a couch out of an old wagon wheel and some hair from his beard.
