Thanks! Thats what I'm hoping! That's also why I'm debating on whether or not I'm going to paint her name across the top like originally.

Some time ago we found a small piece of furniture that had been made by my grandfather. How'd we know? He'd carved his name along with "for Betty" on the bottom of the piece. It wasn't a particularly pretty piece of furniture and we wondered why it had been kept as long as it was - until we found the engraving (that's really too nice a word, primitive carving is more like it!). If in doubt about putting her name on it, just put it underneath. Someone will find it years from now and know how much love went into making it!
