This is a toy box that I built many years ago for a family, but they moved before I was able to deliver it. I kept it around hoping to find a use for it. It had to have the art work changed because the family’s name was in the original art.

I was involved with a Christian school, so I went to their art department and the Elementary art teacher volunteered to re-do the art work. Morgin Ross did a great job. Her husband is a teacher at the same school as well as an assistant football coach. I put that in because the school is in the state championship game this Saturday in the Georgia Dome. Go War Eagles.

The toy box is going to the kindergarten department at my church. The FBC stands for First Baptist Church. It is in Fairburn, Ga. The bear is because I go by the name Bearpaw for my shop. The number on the caboose is the year the church was started.

I hope that this will be a great Christmas for all of my LJ friends and may you all find peace from the Prince of Peace – Jesus Christ.
