A Few of My Favorite Things

I Love  Knowing That I am Holding 
a Small Piece of the Past.
It wasn't until I got Older 
that I started to
 Appreciate History .
I some times Wish 
I could take All of my 
High School History Classes
 Over Again 
Because I Think Now 
I would Actually Pay Attention!
  
Do you ever Wonder About 
the History of an Item?
The Journey it made
 to find its way t you?
  
I Wonder if in 1852 
this Godey's Lady's  Book
Was Read by an 
Elegantly Dressed Lady
Sitting in Her Morning Room Sipping Tea.
I am Always Amazed 
at the Beauty 
 and the Details
 of some of these
 Hand Carved
Pieces .
 Hope you All have a Wonderful Weekend!
Thank You for Letting Me Share a
 Few of my Favorite Things!

I see so many things now that my mother had that belonged to her mother and how easily we gave things away or donated to charity or threw in the garbage! And now, here we are, at this age and looking back we appreciate so much what items were worth -- not just in a monetary sense.

Hello Jill and A Happy New Year to you too!
Yes I very often think about all these wonderful vintage and antique finds and, very often, the amount of work and dedication that went into their creations.
Aren't we lucky to be the new beholders of such beautiful finds like those buttons and that gorgeous book with enchanting images.
Enjoy as I know how much you appreciate them!
Sending hugs,
Suzy

Drum lessons will GENERALLY vary anywhere from $10-$30
per half hour. The price is based on the education and
experience of the teacher and also the length of the
lesson. Usually in the beginning you will take half hour
lessons, but some people like to jump right in with hour
lessons.

Some of my very favorite things, too, my dear friend...and I loved history the first time around, if you can believe it--even majored in it!

Wishing you the most delightful day, Jill!
