Picture of Grandma's Stationary Box
When I was growing up my grandmother always kept a stationary box filled with all sorts of pretty things to write with.

This box of treasures was always a source of fascination. There were special pens and writing implements, lacy paper with feminine designs, special stamps, little wax candles and stamps to imprint a special seal, even a tiny bottle of perfume for those extra special ones and anything else you would want to send the kind of letters that would be cherished and remembered.

This is my version of Grandma's Stationary Box.

I've never used Gorilla glue before, is it as good as they claim?
DebH57 (author)  Donaldhrtc6 years ago
Gorilla Glue is one of the best all purpose glues I have found Donald.
