Measuring sticks Infatuation.............




Yes....you heard me right....I said it.... I am smitten as a kitten with Them. Not the silver shiny metal stanley tape type....nahhhh. Got to have the old worn numbers wooden jointed beauties. And beauties they are in their simpleness. Practical yet graphic. I am sure my fondness for numbers has something to do with my attraction. They are fun to shape....OR not. Anyway... I like them. Hope you do too! cherry

Hi Cherry! Thanks for visiting my blog! I love old wooden folding measuring sticks also. They remind me of my dad. Everytime I see one, I have sweet memories of being a little girl and watching him build something.

I love the one you have shaped like a star.

I have memories of playing with these as a child. I think there was a bit of finger pinching involved...
Thanks for stopping by my blog - hope to "see" you again.

I love the way the one is shaped like a star. My dad use to have one of these I wonder if he still does.

Hey! I think I recognize you from MY blog! I have tried to come visit before but the links haven't worked, or I did something wrong! If this is you, thank you so much for your kind words. I am sure I emailed you to say so, but if I didn't I am so glad to have stumbled upon your blog quite by accident so I could have a proper introduction to YOU!
Now, for a look around!
