Desk and Keepsakes

When needing to jot a note to a friend or family member, or pay a bill, this is where I sit.

Letter opener (Colonial Williamsburg) in hand I am ready for incoming letters.

A suitable box for storing antique family photos. In the matted and glassed hinged cover I chose to feature my Grandfather Stone's side of the family, with a copy of his Father and Mother's wedding invitaion and pictures of his childhood.

Each side of the family has their own bundle.
Gramzie (Henderson) Grandad (Stone)
Gran'ma (Fasnacht) Grandpa (Newton)
It feels good to have them in a safe dry place away from mildew,
dust and the danger of getting crumbled in a card board box.
