Good morning all.
Had my first reflexology massage yesterday and really enjoyed it...it was amazing what she could tell about me from my feet! Lunch was a bit of a disaster but in the end we only got charged for two glasses of Prosecco...we would rather the food have been good though! Not to worry it didn't spoil our afternoon.
M&S did spoil my evening though when they decided my spending patterns looked decidedly fraudulent and put a block on my card...despite being able to tell them all the transactions they were highlighting had been legitimately made by me they insisted my card had to be cancelled...I was furious!! Now I'll have to wait for the new card then start sorting out all the regular payments I make that will need changing....grrrr just what I needed NOT!
No crafting to share today, instead I thought I'd share the first of my heritage pieces with you. This belonged my Great Aunt and although I was her favourite and spent a lot of time with her when I was a child I didn't know it existed until several years after her death. My sisters and I argued over who was to have it when we first found out about it but they had to concede when my youngest sister pointed out that actually I had been the only one of us to like my Aunt so it really should go to me.
Anyway enough of the waffle...
Can you tell what it is yet?
Obviously rarely been played with!
In all it's glory....
As my Aunt was born in 1904 this has to be over 100 years old, there's no manufacturers name on it but on the label the word "Registered" is written in English and German suggesting it was made for both markets and most likely before the First World War. Sadly there's no one left to tell us any more about it now but it will continue to be treasured as my Aunt had so obviously treasured it.
Now just got to find a way to display it to it's best advantage in our new house...it's spent too long wrapped in brown paper and hidden away in a wooden chist.
Have a good day...housework beckoning here again!
