There was one person who led or participated in every combat, training or occupation operation during WWII and the Korean War. This person could always be depended on. GI's began to consider him the "super GI." He was one who always got there first or who was always there when they left. I am, of course, referring to Kilroy Was Here. Somehow, this simple graffiti captured the imagination of GI's everywhere they went. The scribbled cartoon face and words showed up everywhere - worldwide. Stories (some even true) abound.
In gratitude - Sharon

From Facebook Post for Corridor Arts and Craft Spring Gala: Kesler Heirloom Pens is our next featured vendor! How cool and unique is this??
David writes..."When I started turning about ten years ago I was instantly 'hooked'. I wanted to make both useful and attractive items that had a sense of 'place'.
A bowl made with wood from a tree that was once climbed as a child, or a pen from a grandparent’s front door, are enduring items that carry with them a sense of history. I prefer work with native woods gleaned from local sources, but I also turn items out of acrylic, antler, stabilized corn cobs, and discarded counter tops."
David is doing a GIVEAWAY of a $15 gift certificate to be used at the gala. All you have to do is comment on this post with your favorite picture! Check out more of David's work on his site; he has SO many more beautiful photos! http://www.keslerpens.com/is site
