Princess Sophia's Throne




As I mentioned earlier, my cousin's little girl will be celebrating her first birthday tomorrow! I made this bench for little Sophia for her birthday.

When Sophia's mommy and I were little, our Grandpa made little benches for all of his grandchildren. When he passed away, and a new generation began, I knew that I would carry on the tradition in his memory.

I hope the Princess loves her new throne!
