    A gift from my Dad

    My father gave me an old dryer rack and also an old box camera...really cool. I was going to put it in my sewing room, but I put it on the porch since I really do dry my skirts and dresses on the porch...totally love it. the box camera is in my sewing room on the self.

    Dryer rack looks neat on the porch but it would be great for Bargello strips in my sewing room!

    Those were awesome things your Dad gave you! Lucky girl with a nice Dad. Glad you found such good spots for them.

    I have one of those, I used it over my kitchen sink for dishtowels/cloths, potholders, and frequently used utensils.

    My dad said his Mom used hers in the kitchen also for days when it was too cold to hang items outside.

    Great antique...worth some $$$$$ here. I don't know where you live, but that wood could get ruined being exposed to elements........

    Very neat indeed! The box camera reminds me of one my late mother had...a Kodak Brownie. I loved having it, but asked my youngest sister if she would like it, as she is a professional photographer and I thought it would mean a more to her. She gladly accepted the gift, and mentioned that she might even have film that would work in it!
    When someone mentions quilting, I go to pieces!
