Shorpy cuteness

Over at one of my fave blogs, Shorpy, I thought this pic was especially appealing:

Check it out here.  And this story of the boys’ father was also touching.

Of course, as a crafty type, my eye was drawn to the gorgeous toy cat the littlest boy is holding, I wonder if it came with him from the Titanic, or was a post rescue gift to console him somewhat.  What is it about the Titanic that grabs everyone’s imagination?

    The reason why everyone is so drawn to it is becuase of its story and that it was the biggest ship then and that so many people died on April 15th 1912 at 2:20am Thats why and theres an storry that the diamond named Heart of the ocean is still within the Titanic

    Sadly the heart of the ocean necklace was just a fake necklace to lead the story of the old lady in the film, there was a heart of the ocean made in the 90’s for celine dion to wear in her video “my heart will go on” i was so sad when i found this out! :)
