For my first Vintage Thingie Thursday, I wasn't sure what to post. I am very fortunate to have many of my great Grandparents belongings from both sides of my father's family. From pieces of furniture, to porcelain, to pictures, to handicraft tools. what an awesome way to showcase some of their/my things. For years I have been working on my family tree as well.
I have started a small collection of hop nail glass. My Paternal grandmother handed down a couple of pieces to me and I am slowing finding more pieces from time to time.
The second picture is of a chest of drawers from my great grandmother again on my father's mmother's side. I have loved it forever and was very pleased when i inherited it in 1997. The inside is very rustic and the back is made from rough hewn boards. The hardware is original and there is a burn spot on the top probably from an oil lamp. My great grandparents came from Missouri and I am told this once was on a covered wagon. From Missouri it went to Ohio and from Ohio to Canada.
