I wonder who made it...What was kept in it? I like to imagine it was used for their beloved fishing gear-tackle, lures, hooks and such as they both loved to fish. I've thought of getting rid of it many times and JUST CAN'T DO IT!
Why keep it? It looks like a piece of junk-but to me its beautiful. Something to hold onto-to remember them by for always.
See Aunt Irene aka "GRAMMER" was special to me for many reasons. I can still picture her over sized beautifully wrinkled smile as she always fondly called me her "TWIN!" She rushed to me with out stretched arms at every Roller Reunion with either a jar of pickled beets or a crocheted HOT PAD laughing & smiling all the way.
See we share a birthday....60 years apart-making us "TWINS." Aunt Irene will be 99 this year-you can figure my age from there-ha.
She has lost her memory for the most part but from what I hear-THE SMILE HASN'T CHANGED.
I did a 30 minute REVAMP job on the old cabinet today. What do you think?
This was also Aunt Irene's basket-Initials "PKH" fondly written on the handle-probably taken on fishing trips and church pot-lucks filled with home made goodies. At least that's what I like to imagine.
Now filled with diapers and wipes.
