Of Old Things...

This morning, as I was making tea for Daniel to take to work, my eye was caught by all the red in this little "still life with thermos."

I don't know about you, but Daniel and I use things up. We never need the latest gadget and when we get one, we use it until it doesn't work anymore. The same with cars. Or clothes. Or anything really.
When we moved into the first house we bought in Michigan in the early 90s, a few things were left behind by the previous owners. One of them was this thermos, which I am sure was already well used. And it still is. Nearly every morning for the past eight years I have filled it with tea for Daniel to take to school.

Do you have things like that? Oldies, but goodies?
