The picture to the left is the bottom of the quilt on the second design wall.
In 1984, my Aunt passed away. The state of Arizona had made me first her guardian, then conservator and the executrix of her will. I sold most of her things but there were a few things that did not sell and so thus I kept them. These items are amongst my "treasures." One of these treasures is a small dish. I have looked at this dish for years wondering why there was an Indian decal on a dish made in Germany. On the back of the dish it says Royal Saxe E S Germany. The other day, I decided I was going to look this up to see if I could find anything. I have made I think a pretty good guess.
How did my aunt get this dish? In her things were many old things. My guess is that they may have belonged to her grandmother. Or I had a great grandfather and a grandfather from Denmark. Back during that time, Denmark was sometimes part of Germany. That is a part of my history that is lost forever. Me, being a genealogist, I could kick myself a thousand ways for not being more inquisitive about things. I grew up during the period of time when children were seen and not heard. That went with me into my adult life. So, a word of wisdom, if you have something old and you do not know the history, ask someone. Once they are gone, that information is gone. And, be sure to document it somewhere. If nowhere else, put it in your Bible.
A bird came to visit...........
My office has wonderful windows and outside these windows are large bushes cut like trees. The birds love them.
Hope you all have a wonderful day..............
