CIJ 14: Best gifts come with memories attached

2014-07-27 - Photo by Linda Waggener.
The best Christmas gift Mitzi Bault says she ever received was the little perfume bottle with the note from her mother, Fay McKinley, retired librarian and one who knows the added value that provenance gives to the antique. The note explains that the little bottle was a gift to Fay from her Aunt Opal Walker. The bottle and note lay on another precious keepsake. Mitzi said her dad, L.G. "Peanut" McKinley, sewed the potholder as a gift to his mother when he was a child in Russell County. The memories were shared as the annual Waggener family Christmas in July came to a close Sunday at the home of Ricky and Mitzi Bault.
