Welcome Tuesday once again! This is fast becoming my favorite day of the week. Misi's display chain theme for this week is a make-do. Again my brain went into overdrive and couldn't come up with anything! So after looking around the house when I came home from work this is what I came up with. Not sure if these qualify as make-do's but they all have a special place in my heart!
This is a picture from my kitchen cabinets. You see when my kitchen was built by my neighbor back in the 50's he worked at Piper Aircraft. He was a carpenter on the side and of course in those days nothing was thrown away. While painting my cabinets years ago, I discovered this printing on the bottom of one of the shelves. Well, Mr N. had used an old box from Piper as one of my shelves.He MADE DO with what he had. Piper and Mr. N are no longer with us but I have alittle piece of them in my home.
I love my make-do banana holder that my dad made for me. He was so proud of these that he made everyone in the family one and it does keep my bananas from turning brown. Thanks Dad!
Another make-do that was my Dad's was his candle keeper and match keeper. He used this while he worked in the coal mine to keep his candle and matches dry. It still has coal dirt on it and sits proudly in my bedroom on a shelf.
Hope everyone enjoys a look into my past and things that I cherish. I so love seeing everyone else's displays! Have an awesome week!
