This has become my one of my favorite things to write about, since I have discovered more little things around my house that are special! I never realized how many great little things I have that fit the vintage category! I am so excited to show you them as the weeks go by!
If you would like to participate in Vintage Thingies Thursdays, click on the apron lady, on my side bar. She will take you over to Lisa at "Confessions of an Apron Queen" and you can read more about it!

This is my vintage thingie this week. It is a pencil/charcoal drawing of still life objects in my Aunt Bette's house. Remember last week when I showcased her house for Vintage Thingies Thursday? Well, not only was this drawn in her house, but it was also done by her son, Theodore Devone Shafer. We all called him Thee. He was the oldest of all us cousins, and a supremely wonderful human being!
I treasure this drawing with all my heart! Not only was he a great friend, but I remember being up in his room (my attic room) and he asking me to look out the window and tell him what I saw. He was trying to draw me, and I was too young to sit still. He ended up giving up- (giggle) and if he hadn't, maybe I'd have another picture of myself today!
So here's to you Thee! I love you and miss you! I know you're watching from your kitchen spot!
