Seen: 1800s Frame

I saw this framed photo (?) in Virginia in 2016.  It was in the upstairs of an antique shop. I have a lot of dislike for huge, bulky, obnoxious frames that were in style for most of Western history. I find them oppressive in rooms and it is even more scalding that they are often…

Seen: Bird Trivet

I saw this trivet in a store in Winchester, Virginia in November 2016. I really liked it and I knew when I saw it I would not buy it, but would also regret not buying it.
