~Thursday: My Favorite Brown Things~

Sue is going to the market today. I will be joining her this afternoon!

My first favorite thing is an organizer that I got at an estate sale about 8 years ago. It has been by the piano holding misc. papers, but last week I moved it into the kitchen where it holds 2 weeks worth of daily t-do lists, my calendar, pens and pencils, Benjamin's letter sound flashcards and of course more post-its! ;0)

This is a child-sized apron that my Grandma made for my siblings and I. Yellow rick-rack frames the top. My love for aprons started long ago with this sweet one!

Lastly, a Victorian sewing box that I bought from Ebay last year.

Inside, there are lots of lace, ribbon, spools of thread and half-made dollclothes. It once belonged to a little girl. I love looking at the rusted keys and wondering what they unlocked long ago.

Back in March we did a lesson about the box. You can read about it here
