A few pieces of family history

I received an incredible gift this year from my father.


He made a box like this for each child (five of us!) and mounted a set of silverware in it.



Here is the inscription on the back:



I had some silverware from the beach house in a mason jar on a shelf with my dishes so I could see them all the time. But this box gives them so much more dignity and elevates them to works of art.


I'm so grateful for this thoughtful and wonderful gift! Thank you, Papa!
