Tuesday Treasures

Come on in and have a cup of coffee. Kona is just soooo good, isn't it? I am copying my friend Trace over at Granny Trace Scraps & Squares.
She did a post called Tuesday Treasures  and I followed. If any of you bloggers decide to do this, give Trace credit. I think I will until Thanksgiving.
This is a little cabinet, built by Sam,(who ran the cabinet shop, my dad owned) that my Daddy used in his Shanty. The shanty was a little bitty house on wheels, that my Dad took to the well drilling sites with him. He kept lard, coffee, salt and pepper in it. He had a little laundry heater stove and would cook his lunch. I have treasures in it now. The letter in the upper left hand corner is a handwritten note from Gladys Taber. Underneath is a pin with my name on it, Daddy had made for me. The blue pig was my Maternal grandmothers tape measure. The white pig was hers, also. The lower left hand bear is a wind up and behind that is a string bound book dated 1832. The pin keep was sent to me by a former blogger, Lori Triplett. The first thing I ever received from a blogging friend.
We all know things aren't the real treasures, but on Tuesday's for a while it will be things
I consider those of you who come Through My Back Door a treasure
