The pens, pencils and markers started collecting in an old wooden whiskey box which is funny in its own way since there was no whiskey in the house. They eventually moved into an empty Pot of Gold Christmas chocolate tin, which is almost as funny as the whiskey box since we didn’t celebrate Christmas either, not really, not the in the “traditional” way.
None the less, this old tin with it’s collection has travelled with me for the last 15 years, 12 moves and it is only this week I decided to have a look.
Can you imagine all the great and wonderful memories these simple, used, lightly damaged pens, pencils and markers brought back.
From the A&P, Independent, art class, science fair projects, old drafting pencils from started, stopped, started, stopped drawings of GREATNESS 🙂 and lastly Laurentian pencil crayons…. who is Chad L. anyway?
I miss my family!
Love the memories 🙂
