Sunshine into the Lives of Others: The Inspiring Life Story of Beth L. Tielke

"Those who bring sunshine into the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves." – James Matthew Barrie

Spring

Spring: a season so special they even give it a special name–“springtime.”

The first 20 years. The rising sun.

Check out the site’s first interview below, entitled “Spring”, or the related post here:

Below are some of Beth’s first baby dresses, slips and baby shoes; each of these pieces of clothing were handmade by her mother, Doris Sloan.

Beth’s mother also made the clothes for her dolls. When she was one year old, her parents gave her the baby doll (shown below) for Christmas. Then each year her mother would make another dress for her doll for a Christmas present. At a later date, I will post a video of Beth explaining the intricate details of the dresses and describing her beloved doll.
