Still in the Pioneer room.
They had a cast iron stove. It was one of the small ones that are used as heat and cooking.
They had to see how heavy the iron was, but…
I wonder if the boy read this.
This was right next to the stove along with 2 different kinds of spinning wheels. I love the use of color. Whenever I think of the pioneers and the “old west”, I tend to think of all the clothing and quilts and every other textile thing to be brown or drab.
The boy wasn’t really interested in spinning wheels, the guns caught his eye. In the case was a Henry repeating rifle and
a really cool set of dueling pistols.
I like guns and all, but who cares about guns when you can look at
beautiful old dishes. I wanted to take this one home. I don’t think they would have missed it.
The last thing in this room that I wanted to share with you is this lovely antique typewriter. It even had different fonts. Again, forgive the blurry picture.
I didn’t want to take this home. Not when I have a PC at my disposal. Working on the husband for a lap top…….maybe for Christmas.
Did you take typing in school?
