Warm Heart Wednesday sponsored by Ms. Jenny at Jenny Matlock..."off on my tangent." This is where we share something that warms our hearts.
I have a memory box that warms my heart.
A year ago I started working on my parents' old secretary desk. It had originally belonged to my father's parents. I've had it in the garage for a long time always intending to paint it.
My son helped me take it apart. We started finding things wedged into the nooks and crannies. More things for my memory box.
I did try and find out who Mr. Thomas of Rust Craft Publishers was by googling, but had no luck. The little star was a premium of the Lone Ranger radio series. By 1938 my dad would have been around 20 and his brother and sister teenagers, so I don't think it was from them. Another mystery.
I've told you before that I'm a sentimental old fool, so nothing was thrown away. If it had been in that old secretary desk for years who was I to toss it? All of it ended up in my memory box (for my kids to throw away someday). Does that warm your heart?
Meanwhile, I've resumed work on the secretary desk.
I'm finally done with the two coats of primer.
I'd like all of you to keep asking me if it's finished yet. I need to be held accountable or I might not get this done before I die of old age. I'm pretty sure this darn secretary desk will warm my heart once it's done.
Now head over to Jenny's blog for a list of this week's participants. Thanks for visiting...
