Labor of LoveFriday, September 3, 2010
While antiquing a couple of years ago, I found this small round box. It looked interesting and I opened it up. Really, I was taught better....not to touch everything, but I just couldn't help myself.
Inside nestled were three strawberry emerys. I knew right then that the price didn't matter. I had to purchase this small emery box. Luckily it didn't cost an arm and a leg.
My husband Dave has been working on a lathe in the garage for the past year making the wooden cupcake bases. I asked him if he thought he could make the emery box too. He made a couple practice ones. He had to stop because we ran out of wood and had to wait for some lumber to dry at the mill.
His practice ones have been sitting in my cabinet for a couple of months. This morning I painted and waxed one of them. "Holy Cow!" I love how it turned out. (I might move Dave's bed out into the garage. It's definitely where he needs to be.)
I made this small acorn emery for the box....perfect for autumn. Our oak trees have the best acorn tops!
So to celebrate labors of love....and Labor Day....here's the deal.
Leave a comment and I will choose one using the random number generator. I only have one to give away....wish there were more! I will have to see if I can get him back out in the garage!
