One of those days when none of the photos worked. Not a one. The journals are getting uppity. There are now seven little beauties and they will make their way to etsy in a few weeks' time. I think the fact that you said nice things about them gave them airs. They have not deigned to be photographed today.
A change of scenery is in order.
French tools from yesteryear.
A hand forged brass protractor.
A very old brass canister with equally old metal stamps.
The number 2 alone convinced me that I should pay the far-too-dear-yet-inflexible asking price.
