Edition wooden boxes
it your ambition to lead a quiet life
Thessalonians 4:11 and 12
My mother grew up in a large
eighteen-room house that she shared with her extended family. She was an
only child, the last of a family line that stretched back to the
Mayflower. The house had been in the family for many generations and
needless to say was filled with innumerable family treasures. Upon my
grandmother's death, my mother being the sole heir,
inherited the family home and all of its contents.
Much has changed since those
days when I could walk through that old house in Vermont, but when I get the
chance I still enjoy looking at material that came from there. Some of
the things I appreciate the most are the many wooden boxes my ancestors kept
and used to store small items that were special to them. It is my hope
that the wooden boxes I made for the Collector's Edition of California Gold
Rush will be kept and used in the same way.
Enjoy the game!
