I have so many, including my 3 dogs but I thought I would spare everyone yet another picture of them. :) So here are a few of my other favorite things.
Here is a old Plymouth mantle clock that my brother surprised me with one year for Christmas. We think it dates back to the late 1800's . In the far bottom corner are 3 little dancing frogs ....and it still works.
Many of you have seen this one before. Its my pie safe. My dear hubby built this for me several years ago for Christmas. The tins were all hand punched by him.
This is my old Hoosier style cabinet, another Christmas present from the my wonderful hubby.
This little jewel may not look like much but it means bunches to me. It is a old match stick holder, it dates back to the 30's. My dad bought this as a wedding gift for his sister back when he was just a little boy. To think of how hard dad had to work and to save his money to buy this for his sister. My Aunt recently passed it down to me.
Lastly is my old school desk. This desk used to be in the old one room school house where both my parents and lots of my Aunts & Uncles went to school. In 1942 the school started having Sunday service in the building, this where all my family attended Church and where I attended Church most of my life. Around 38 years ago the Church gave away all the old school desk. One of my cousins took several of them and had them stored in her barn.
About 14 years ago she seen my appreciation for Antiques and gave me this desk. What makes it even more special is the carvings on the back. Back then boys carried pocket knives, we are pretty certain some of the carvings were made by my dads best friend and more resent carvings made by my brother & cousin
