If you didn't figure it out I love to surround myself with family things. These things bring back so many memories. On my hubbies nightstand I display manly items of my fathers.
My father was a pipe smoker and even today if I get a wiff of certain tobacco and he is here next to me again.
Of course he always carried a pocketknife in his pocket.These are just two of a whole drawer full. Each grandchild got to pick from them and walked away with at least two or three. Each one cherish these small memory tokens.
This pipe was one I bought him for Christmas about 40 years ago. It was his fancy dress up pipe.
The only thing that was not my fathers is this glasses case which actually was my grandfathers.
I really would like to add to the collection from my late father-in-laws things but items of his are scarce. Maybe someday more things will work there way here.
