I found this folded item in my grandfather's barn last year. I believe it maybe a folding, portable, mirrored shaving stand of some sort. If anyone knows for sure..please let me know. I don't know why I dragged this piece home other than I thought it was weird.
open with removable, shallow, milk glass insert. It looks like the clip type thing behind the glass may have held a shaving brush and the bowl a shaving cake of soap.
It started snowing around 1 a.m. this morning and has snowed all day long. The worse of this storm is suppose to happen tonight through the early morning hours. I got up early this morning and made a large pot of turkey vegetable soup. I ventured out to bring soup to my elderly aunt and my parents. The roads were covered in snow and were very slippery. I was glad to get back home.
This afternoon I did manage to make 1 pair of earrings, but with the poor lighting my photos aren't very good. I will try and take a better photo in the morning if the lighting is better. It was such a dark, dreary, day. The photos below are the same pair of earrings..just different lighting and much enlarged. The crystals are a 2 toned, faceted, purplish/blue on sterling wires. The actual size of the stones are about the size of a dime.
I also worked on a 2 page spread in my Smash book. January 2014. This year has started early with a snowstorm on the 2nd day of the month. I hope that isn't how the winter is going to be...one storm after another. I thought someone told me the farmer's almanac predicted a cold, but not much snow. Only time will tell. Is it spring yet? On a positive note...the days are getting longer again.
