Sian got me thinking the other week with this post. She asked "what is the oldest thing you have made which has been in continuous use since it was formed"
.....and you know, there isn't a thing I've ever made still in use.....that I can think of.
My mother-in-law still has the clock, my husband made when he was at secondary school, hanging in her hall. It's next to the key ring holder his brother made at the same age. Around 12 years old. I must get a photo next time we visit!
I have kept many items the boys have made over the years, a little clay pot No1 son made in primary school which did hold loose change....until it was dropped last year!!!
Recently No2 son made a charm, a rugby ball....what else!
He gave it to me so I plan to use it as a key ring.
Now this isn't strictly something in use...although I suppose you could hang a few things on it :) ...
...No 3 son made it from Mod Rock. It's a roman man with a spear through him. He's wasn't amused when someone in the house said it looked like a man with a big willy!!
apparently the spear did go through the man...but the end snapped off.....which would make more sense....phew!
So have you shared something you've made which is still in use?
