Two New-To-Me Heirlooms January 11, 2018

Posted by nrhatch in Gratitude, Home & Garden, Humor.

I acquired two additional family heirlooms for safe-keeping this year.

The first is this handsome dictionary stand built by my maternal grandfather who had a way with wood . . . and words!  I enjoyed dressing it up for the holidays.

The second is this rustic 2-drawer pine table built by my Great Uncle Lee ~ my paternal grandmother’s brother.  When I open the drawer and inhale, pleasant scents associated with visits to Vermont permeate the air.

I also enjoyed decking it out for the holidays with Santas from around the world, Frosty’s hat (which I have for safe-keeping), and some humorous reptiles created by my niece Sarah.

Aah . . . that’s better!
