A Huge Old Canada Bread Box for Show and Tell

Hi come on in!

Today I'm joining Cindy over at My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday.  I am very excited about what I have to show today.  I have a neighbor who is a collector of all things vintage and he found this Canada Bread Box and sold it to me for what he paid for it, can you believe $20.00?  I was thrilled to buy it from him.  It has oak slats on the bottom, with the metal corners that you can see there.  I'm sure this style of box hasn't been used in the bread factory for a while. I just love the lettering on it.  Thanks Jeff!

The box is huge, though.  I almost don't have room for it, so I put it on the fireplace hearth.  I put some vintage blankets in it and a pillow covered with a vintage pillow slip.

Yesterday was my son's birthday.  He turned 33, he's my oldest.  He is a wonderful man, I am so blessed to call him "Son".  He has a sweet wife and two children.  He runs his own brick laying business and has completely renovated his home, that he just sold, and made a nice profit on.
Happy Birthday, Greg!

I had him and his family over for his b'day dinner, I made him Cajun Beans and Corn Bread.  It's a favorite from his childhood.

Be sure to go over to Cindy's Show and Tell and see what else is being shown, it's always lots of fun.

Have a lovely day!

Hi Cindy,

Love, love the box. Happy B-day to your son. Can't believe you could have a 33 yr old. No way do you look old enough for that! Glad you were able to spend time with him on his special day. They just never stop being our little boys do they? Have a great weekend! And when you do visit Savannah, let me know. We'd have a blast. I'll be your tour guide (if I live in driving distance by that time. lol)

Nice bread box! Just fill it up with some nice fresh bread from your double ovens and send it out West! Oh well..I can dream can't I? Happy happy Birthday to my sweet nephew Greg! He may be 33 but I will never forget him as a sweet toddler. I got to spend some very special times with him. He was nice at every age. Many wonderful memories. Love that boy tons!

How do I follow your blog? I guess I have been teaching kindergarten too long. I can't figure it out.
