We inherited a writing desk, on the weekend from my Mums recent clean out.
What really made us laugh was the sticker and slug gun pellet we found. The sticker stuck to the side and slug squashed into the timber by a drawer....
can you tell my brother Jeff owned it at one stage.... LOL
My Pop mentioned in previous blog post built for my mum when she was a kid back in his builder days. It still has the good timber smell in the drawers, it even had a couple wood shavings in a draw. It is so heavy, it took two people stopping repeatedly to carry into the house!
Mum told a cute story when she gave it to us. Pop made it for her for Christmas but was caught out working on it in the shed by mum and uncle Ray. When questioned Pop had said he was making furniture for Marr & Co ( the biggest store in town like Myer way back when) and they totally fell for it!!! Mum said she was so surprised and thrilled when she actually found out it was hers on Xmas day!!!
