Years ago (early 1980's), my "wood" guy made plain sorority paddles just like these. He delivered them to me in a cardboard box with the strong smell of saw dust, which always makes me think of good times. I can only associate the smell of wood and saw dust with painting special things for special people, since this painting hobby centers around wood, making something unique for a friend or sister.
I love this display of Delta Zeta paddles all lined up, ready to give to big sisters, after heartfelt effort has been put into individualizing each one for a special sister. That is the thing about paddles...They are a favorite sorority gift because they are so unique and personal.
