new old scissors

I recently acquired these scissors for my studio.  They were previously owned by my grandmother, Pauline Hudon.  It's hard to explain the joy that I get from using them, and even from just seeing them in the jar on my desk. They work beautifully, but it's more than that.  She actually used these scissors and using them makes me feel close to her. And I love that she put her initials on them.

These would make a good still life drawing I would think.

Thanks Mike. I hadn't thought of that.
