I'm afraid I'm buying all my relatives old junk piece by piece at garage sales! I bought this grey metal lunch box because it is exactly like the one my dad used to carry to work on the rig when I was a little girl. It's battered, it's worn, it's kinda ugly, but it triggered a memory, so into the car it went! I ust thought the thermos was kinda cute. And I've no idea where that Dutch printed napkin came from!
The Old Maid cards belonged to my husband's Memaw. He has lots of fond memories of playing Old Maid with his grandparents when he was a kid. He always knew when Grandpa would get the Old Maid because his whole head would turn red (he was bald) and he would laugh so hard no sound would come out! I guess it's a good deal the family doesn't gamble!
