From the beginning, Carol Smith (childhood nickname, "Lulla") has had an absession with beautiful fabrics, elegant design, and the very hihest quality workmanship. She believes these passions of her mother. They loved having beautiful coats and mtching hats and pretty dresses cutom made for Carol when she was a little girl. "I had a down-filled "puff" for naptime. One side was pink silk, and the other side was blue. I still remember the amazing luxuriousness of it. It was not only comforting, but it made me feel like a princess." As the only daughter/granddaughter (for a short while), Carol was quite pampered!
