Sian, from over at From High in the Sky, recently asked "What's the oldest thing you made that has been in continuous use?" I thought about this and came up with two possible answers. The first is this trivet that I made in middle school when I was about 10 or 11 years old. I was one of the few girls in wood shop back in the early 1970's, and I was quite proud of this creation. My mom gave it to me sometime after I got married (30 years ago), and it's been in my cupboard and in my kitchen used off and on). The other option is a Christmas ornament that I made when I was five years old - it's the red construction paper Santa star in the upper right quadrant of this layout:
It has either been on my parents' tree or my tree since 1966. What about you? What's the oldest thing you made that has been in continuous use?
