Package from Dad

Got a big box in the mail today filled with goodies from my Dad up in Maryland. One of the events that Courtney and I are working on involves old skeleton keys. A quick call to my Dad, can he please keep an eye open for them (he goes to auctions all the time), and he remembers he has a stash somewhere in the garage. Sends me all of them! And also gifted me with a tole umbrella stand that once belonged to my Nana. And I discovered lots of other vintage items with each piece of newspaper I unwrapped.I found a place for it in my Candy Spelling gift closet; it now holds stray rolls of wrapping paper.

Wow, your dad is cool! I once went thrifting with my dad and he convinced me not to buy a ten dollar vintage tricycle, that same day he bought a sticky, gross olive green blender. I don't think he has ever used a blender in my lifetime. Tell your dad I want a vintage tricycle complete with ringing bell.

Your father sounds very cool! Don't you just love that tole stand? Perfect for your paper. Have a great Easter weekend!
