Very old scissors that used to belong to Aunt Celia are sacred to me. Before she died she gathered up boxes of things she wanted to give to various people.
Lee and I were blessed to get her old fashioned garden sprinkler (we feel her spirit as it gently sprays water on the lawn). We also got a few tools. There are some needle nosed pliers that have a 90 degree angle on them. These old iron scissors are about a foot long and very heavy.
I use them regularly in projects. Remembering that she used them is what makes them special. Unique character that she was.
