My "Standard"~


Remember when I posted this picture.  What a great junkin' find!!! An original Standard stamp holder {you know the wooden kind like Tim Holtz use}.  Well I wanted to show you how I'm using it.  The prongs on it are sprung out, so it won't work as it was originally intended to so I tried this~


Actually it works great!! I had bought some more tissue tapes so I needed a place for them~


and then there is this Standard~


Still works like a charm~these were the office tools of the 50's and 60's!!! I remember sharpening my pencil on this when I was in grade school~all of us in a line, waiting are turn, getting are two pencils ready to start the day!!!!
