What's in the attic???

One of the many joys of owning a historical home is getting to explore every nook and cranny for treasures...


And as the saying goes, "One man's trash is another man's treasure."


So let's get straight to the good stuff...


What did we find??

(And by we I mean my father)

A mysterious burlap sack that made it's way through the mail in ???

It's hard to say the year but I believe the stamp says 5 cents.

It took two men to open it.

It was extremely dusty.

It's a.......Children's Saddle

So what else did we unearth??


That some poor soul lost their marbles...

But don't worry we found them.

How about a typed letter from 1944 from the Orleans Girl Scout Troop to the Girl Scout Executives for their dues of $7.50?
