What's inside your wooden box??????
A wooden box that had come along with all the other things that I received in my John and Iva Collection. They were an older couple who lived south of us on a farm that really did remind one of the Walton's on the tv program many years ago. They gave me the toys and this box must have been in that metal toy container. In reality they were step family as my Grandmother remarried into their family and that is how we became so close to them. The really liked my mom as they had four boys and their grandchildren were all out of state scattered so I was a grandson to them too.
Some of these things came with the box but a lot of them were things I collected as a kid from others also, who thought they were junk. I am going to go into detail on other blogs about the individual things and the box has a story too. The tractor of course was a John and Iva toy that I painted. Some of the bells were theirs also. I will try to photograph things individually and share some of their past. I will leave you today to just look and see what you can see.
