this is my dad, aged 10.
this is his tool box, given to him for his tenth birthday, by his uncle frank who owned a hardware store.
i love hardware stores.
and my dad.
and tool boxes.
now this tool box is filled with all of my tools.
i think it is just about the prettiest thing i’ve ever seen.
p.s. you can listen to my mildly embarrassing ode to hardware stores, here.
