My husband helped me clean our bedroom closet over the weekend, because he’s sweet like that. He didn’t know what he was in for. (He does have a lot of boxes of stuff in there.)
The closet is now spotless and fresh, and during that adventure, I unearthed some fun treasures – old photos that had never been transferred to photo albums (the proverbial “pictures stuffed in a shoebox, from our film camera days. Well, in photoboxes. At least the pictures are stored chronologically.) A red dress from 20 years ago that I couldn’t bear to part with and that my daughter has now claimed for her own. (It’s her size now, not mine.)
I also found some cute little projects that our kids had made when they were little (even before Pinterest fed our creative souls.) Like this little mint tin turned Father’s Day “card” that my daughter made years ago.
I thought maybe someone out there might want to make this cute thing with their own little daddy’s girl or boy.
It’s just a little accordian folded strip of cardstock glued to the inside bottom of an Altoids tin, with the Dad rectangle glued to the other end of the strip. It kind of wiggles when the box is opened, which is what makes it fun. My husband always melted at these gifts, because they represented effort and love. He and I have abandoned some of our packrat ways, choosing to live more simply and less cluttered with stuff, but little treasures like this one aren’t going anywhere.
Have a great weekend everyone. (No more closet cleaning for me–at least not his weekend!
