Ladies and gents, won’t you all please give a warm welcome to “Jenkins”. This piece had me from the moment I saw her, but then when all the poetic papers fell out of her drawer….I was officially a goner. 
 I didn’t want anything too fancy for this piece, so I used milk paint in layers to give a time worn look, lined the drawer with Miss Jenkins poems, and then finished off with a sparkly knob.
Done deal.
