My Mother made this for my grandfather when she was a girl. It is a tiny cabinet of matchboxes for his pipe.
Practically speaking, I do not have a use for this. I have not smoked for years.
As a sentimental device, this object makes my head spin.
I have daughters, and anything that they create for me becomes a masterpiece. I am that typical. I am that predictable. I think that is inevitable. So to see an object that my mother made for her dad actually brings me closer to my now deceased grandfather; we are both fathers of daughters.
Mom, please don't think that I am throwing this out. This particular introspection would have likely never come to the forefront of my brain had I not committed this work of yours to The Dumpster Project. Having said that, you made it, so if you want it back, just let me know.
