Treasure Chest Thursday, Man's Pepper Grinder


I know very little about this wooden pepper grinder.  Man brought it home from his mother's during the 'move/clean out the valuables' process.  On the silver (colored) top is:  "Garantie B. O."  It is 3.5 inches tall, including the grinder mechanism.  On the bottom, barely legible, it says "Made in Czechoslovakia", stamped into the wooden base.  When asked about this pepper grinder, Man's mother told us it was something she had purchased, it was not a gift. Man says it has been around so long that he cannot remember it NOT being in his mother and father's home.

Over the last 10 years or so Man has looked at buying a pepper grinder for his use.  He is never happy with what he has bought or sees in the stores.  He grew up using this little wooden pepper grinder, says it works great.  No more shopping trips required now.  That alone makes it a treasure.  But, seriously, it is a treasure to Man, so, it is now a treasure to all of our family.

I can relate. Some things just can't be replaced and it's the simple things in life that sometimes make us happiest. I love his little pepper grinder.
