Foto Friday - WORN


Brought to us by Heather--HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!

The first thing that came to mind when I thought of worn was my grandfather's old hoe he used for his humble backyard garden. He used it every year up until he passed away in 1979. When the handle started to break he taped it with duct tape (yes....good for everything) and kept right on using it. He wasn't one to dispose of things and buy new. My father kept it after he passed and kept it sitting to the side of his garden to remember his father. When my parents moved into a condo they had no place for it so now it sits next to my garden....

This is a great example of how family heirlooms don't have to be fancy objects. This hoe has so much meaning. Great picture!
