Thanks to Suzanne of Colorado Lady for hosting Vintage Thingies Thursday once again. Be sure to stop by her blog for a list of those participating in this fun event.
I now realize that there is a theme to this week's event; but since I have a hard time following rules I am doing something different. It is Mother's Day week, so I decided to show you instead a bank that belongs to my husband, Bob. When his mother found out she was pregnant with him 71 years ago, she and his Dad started saving money in this bank to pay the doctor bill for when he was born.
The little metal airplane is a replica of the one Charles Lindberg made his solo flight in across the Atlantic ocean in 1927, just 11 years before Bob was born. On the top, it says, "Spirit of Saving" after the name of the plane, "Spirit of St. Louis".
