I had a lovely surprise sitting on my doorstep yesterday. I big ole box from my Aunt Donna, aka Kindred Spirit! She had made 2 adorable little bags for my sons filled with just the right things. My youngest has carried his duckie bag around yesterday and today with the cutest green duck in it. It’s hard to find one he doesn’t have these days but she did it! But better yet, there was also stuff for ME! Sorry, it’s all about the kids usually, but everyone for themselves when it comes to packages!
Inside the box was a wonderful old black purse filled with vintage photographs. Aunt Donna wrote, I am entrusting the family ‘Black bag’ to you! It has held family photos for as long as I can remember. Whenever we wanted to look at pictures, we would pull down the old pocketbook…It was a fun thing that we would do when we would all get together. How cool is that???!!!!
She also included:
• a vintage vegetable basket
• a cake decorating set that was my grandmother’s – still in the box!
• a folding ruler that was my pop’s (grandfather) that has his name written on it – did I mention my LOVE of vintage rulers on here?
• a strap that was my great-great grandfather Hersey Britt’s. Aunt Donna said it was used to sharpen razors and also used as a paddle when someone got a whuppin’. We will use it purely for display purposes!
