Last week I went up to our family cottage with my Mom in Deanlea Beach. I love cottages, they have the best memories and the best stories. My Grandfather built this cottage in 1959 so it’s acquired quite a few over the years. Cottages are also the best places to find treasures. I love going through drawers and boxes but usually I stay out of the shed and just stick to the cottage itself. Last week my Mom was painting the shed (I helped, I swear!) so there was a bit of extra focus in that particular area. I can’t help myself, my Mom and I started nosing around and I ended up emptying a drawer labeled “Grandpa’s Tools”. I don’t know if you know this but jewellers LOVE tools. Well, I’m a jeweller (obviously) and I love tools and I love anything antique or vintage. Put those together and I’m in heaven! So I thought I would share with you all the cool looking things we found in that drawer. Enjoy!
