Have you ever gone through your entire house trying
to find something?
Well I have MANY times, sometimes I'm lucky
and find what I'm looking for, and others times not so lucky.
In our big old farmhouse there's a room which I've
called the "EAST WING". (It's upstairs & faces the east)
I was on a mission to find an old book I was
looking for.....which I never found!
Instead I ended up finding something else.....
I'd completely forgotten that I even owned this!
Can you guess what it is?
The little brass hinge works perfectly on this really old
tooled leather tintype picture book.
The red padded velvet is still in wonderful condition!
I was so excited to have found this in my East Wing....now
to decide where I'll display it?
For those of you who like Antiques, Primitives, Shaker,
Early Pennsylvania~Dutch....do you also like hearts?
