Time capsule






I started pulling apart an old footstool yesterday I have had for ages and imagine my surprise at what it was padded with!
I had expected old stuffing, when instead I found old worn clothing from the 50's and 60's!
A singlet, aprons, shirts, a child's School blazer from St. Stephens with the arms and collar cut off, sleepwear, adult /children's items. Amazing recycling!
A little time capsule of a family's life!
May your Good Friday be full of family too :)

Wow! What are you going to do with it, are the items salvagable?

My friend did the same thing, pulled apart a stool, and found some old bloomers stuffed in it...maybe thats what they did back then! Certainly makes it more interesting.I hope the clothes are ok.
Happy Easter Irene, enjoy the break.
