WOYWW 3rd May, 2017

Here is my WOYWW (What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday).  If you want to know more about this weekly event, take a look at Julia's blog

After my dad passed away, I came across his Navy things.  Got a box frame and have been meaning to do it for ages.

Not sure if the three buttons will stick, so may have to open it up and do something else, but not sure what.



  1. Oh, what a great thing to do with your dad's effects...a much better way of displaying them. And so much better than being left in a drawer somewhere. Well done you, I think it's wonderful.
    Hugs, LLJ 5 xx

  2. It's perfect. Hope the buttons do stick. Sarah #19

  3. Hello Sue. That's a lovely memory of your dad - well done.
    Take care. God bless.

  4. Very nice tribute. I've several collections of our family items I need to do this with. Have a good week, hoping you have SUNSHINE.

  5. Hi Sue, have you tried silicone glue, or hot glue gun? They should do the trick. Frame looks amazing. Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #2 XXX

  6. A beautiful memorial, dx #29

    Shaz, Thanks for the glue ideas. If the buttons don't stick I will try them.

  20. Sue, what an awesome project and how nice everything looks in the keepsake
    box. We have something in common, my Dad was a Navy man too!!


  21. Sue, Thank you.

    Dad actually applied to be a pilot. After going through the various tests, he went back one last time and they told everyone there they were not taking on any more pilots. They were told both the Army and Navy were still inlisting, so he joined the Navy.
