Measuring tape October 25, 2010

Measuring tape. From my personal collection.

Who says work can’t be fun?  The tape itself is interesting–it’s very flexible, much more like a tailor’s tape than a construction tape–and it’s proven pretty useful for simple household measuring and for taking to the store so we can check sizes when shopping for furniture.  Plus, the cats love to chase the tasseled end.  But my favorite feature?  The little button “nose” that you push to retract the tape!


Side note: It’s my father-in-law’s birthday this week, and since he’s quite the craftsman himself (he’s currently finishing a complete remodel of their house, which he designed himself and did a lot of the construction for himself), I thought this measuring tape would be a fun tribute.
