Does anyone know a Nancy Ellen (Hannigan) Martin formerly of Newton and maybe Waltham or Ken Martin formerly of Dedham and maybe Waltham? Bought a lovely pair of nightstands at an antique store last weekend and found the most charming and funny love letter from Ken to Nancy inside. I'd love to reunite this letter w the Martin family. From what I can find online, Nancy and Ken did get married and, unfortunately, Nancy passed away in the late 2000s. #loveletters #antiquing #antiquingadventures #antiquingfinds #ecppov #Kenlovesnancy

I bought this old W. T. Rawleigh Co. freight crate when we lived in Chicago. It’s moved with us along the way but never really had a place inside our home until today. 🤞🏼-I’m trying to work this into our decor. & The second picture is of an old tractor seat I’ve decided to paint a creamy white before hanging. 
You may recognize this name around your house too... William Thomas Rawleigh began his independent sales career in 1889 at the young age of 18. With only $15, a borrowed horse, a mortgaged buggy, and four types of “Good Health Products,” he set out determined to become a successful businessman.

30 Days of Gratitude 
Day 12
Antiquing! And a day date with my love ❤️

I could spend days taking in the days gone by and all that our ancestors brought before us. A day in the antique mall is not just about days gone by, but also repurposing! Talk about the ultimate recycling opportunity! Things just aren’t made like they were back in the day. Being healthy and living clean is about a lot more than just eating real food and chemical free. It’s about being resourceful and not wasting anything! So why not repurpose and reuse as much as we can?

Antiquing yesterday was a success. I️ am finding lots of treasure for new dream catchers. I love bringning new life to someone else’s “trash”. Just because it’s old or used, it doesn’t mean that there isn’t value there.... I can’t wait to get working on some pieces. A few days left in one of my favorite places with some of my favorite people. #soulfilledkeepsakes #soulfilled #custommade #handmade #handmadewithlove #dreamcatchers #bohodreams #vintagelove #vintagefinds #roadtrippin #antiquingadventures #antiquing #colorado #lovewhatyoudo #smallbusinessowner #smallbusiness

🕵🏻️This weapon is commonly described in Russian literature as "Ca. 1657 ceremonial  sword captured from the Swedish boat Geddot in 1703" quite possibly referring to the battle of the Northern war that resulted in capture by a Peter the Great led army of Swedish fortress of Nyenschantz and founding of the new Russian capital of Saint Petersburg. 
I beg to Differ! To me - it looks suspiciously like an executioners sword  made specifically for beheading 😵🗡️and vwet similar in appearance to German swords of the same era and purpose. Why was it on a Swedish boat? Or was it in the fortress and the attribution got it wrong? Maybe  @aronerstorp will
 help us to figure this knew out including the mysterious inscription on the blade: ME FE CIT WII RA. Your guess us as good as mine. Seen @naval_museum in Saint Petersburg

The Hair (Ex Capillis) of Our Lady is the most rare and desirable of all holy relics and the only first class relic we have of the Most Holy Mother of God. Since the Blessed Virgin Mary was assumed into Heaven with body and soul, no physical relics of Her exist.

The sole exception is that of Her hair, which had been preserved and venerated since antiquity in the Holy House of Nazareth. The Holy relic was initially kept by the Patriarchs of Jerusalem until the fifth century when it was ordered by the Byzantine Empress Pulcheria for the Holy relics of the Virgin's Veil and Hair to be translated to Constantinople. For almost 700 years Marian relics together with the Wood from the True Cross of Jesus were considered the "Palladium of the City" until the Crusaders translated them to Europe as a result of sacking of Constantinople in 1204.

Brought from Constantinople by the Crusaders, the Holy Relics of Virgin Mary’s hair are at the present time venerated in Rome in the churches of Santa Maria sopra Minerva, Saint John in Lateran and Santa Maria in Campitelli; in Venice in the Basilica San Marco, in Santo Domenico in Bologna, and in the Church of Sant'Agostino in Licata, Sicily. It is recorded that Pope Pius VI (p. 1775-1799) and Pope Pius IX (p.1846-1878) presented several relics of Our Lady's hair to various noble families in Italy.

AFTER! I'm absolutely in love with how the cabinet turned out. Now I just need to add the galvanized metal sheets to the inside and she is as good as new! #diy #furniture #familymatters #newlifetoanoldpiece #antiquingadventures #chalkpaint
Grandma's old stereo cabinet BEFORE picture. I grabbed it up after she passed and with our new addition coming, it needed to go. I just couldn't part with it because it was destined for the trash or goodwill, so I painted it...#chalkpaint #antiquingadventures #newlifetoanoldpiece #familymatters #furniture #diy
Vintage Street Light that will be a #diningroomtable once I'm done with it...#fleamarketflip #comingsoon #antiquingadventures I'm hype....the guy who sells this "The attractive lady is back for her light, send me the picture once you're done with it!" ... I was always good at haggling!!

Call me crazy, but all I took was my #antiques scavenger pal @gilllockhart to mention she saw a designer with a collection of these on her mantle, and I was HOOKED! That day I walked away from Hemswell Antiques with 3. However this pricey pair at the Peterborough fair, I sadly couldn’t afford. They’re the best examples I’ve seen thus far. I LOVE THEM! #vintage #stafforshirepottery #artisanlife #crafterslife #collections #simplethings #vintagecollections #antiquing #antiquingadventures

Today was a good day at work! (Sadly, it’s not what you think it is...I’m not in the antique business, much as I’d love to be). I adore the deshabille nature of #antiqueshops, with knick knacks and treasures all tumbled together. Who knows what you could unearth?!

In response to a fascinating post by @sean.belair, I want to link it to another saddle from Tyrol that I've seen the other day @mfaboston 
It also comes from the same group of 21 believed to be made by the order of the Holy Roman Emperor Sigismund I as gifts for the founding knights of the Order of Dragon (❤️ it's name in Latin: Societas Draconistarum). Saint George Slaying the Dragon 🐲 is also present on this saddle despite of a different design of the bone plaques.

In response to a fascinating post by @sean.belair, I want to link it to another saddle from Tyrol that I've seen the other day @mfaboston It also comes from the same group of 21 believed to be made by the order of the Holy Roman Emperor Sigismund I as gifts for the founding knights of the Order of Dragon (❤️ it's name in Latin: Societas Draconistarum). Saint George Slaying the Dragon 🐲 is also present on this saddle despite of a different design of the bone plaques. #armsandarmor  #armsandarmour  #antiquing  #mfaboston  #antiquehunter  #antiquehunting  #antiquingadventures  #antiquecollection  #antiquefinds  #antiquearms  #antiquesaddle 
(Available) 20th century silver theca housing relic of Saint Bernadette Soubirous sealed by The Redemptorists .

Saint Bernadette Soubirous (†1879) is venerated as a saint in the Catholic Church and is best known for the Marian apparitions of a "small young lady" who asked for a chapel to be built at the nearby garbage dump of the cave-grotto at Massabielle where apparitions are said to have occurred between in 1858. She would later receive recognition when the lady who appeared to her identified herself as the Immaculate Conception. The Marian shrine at Lourdes (Midi-Pyrénées, France) went on to become a major pilgrimage site, attracting over five million pilgrims of all denominations each year. She is a Holy Patron of bodily illness, Lourdes, France, shepherds and shepherdesses, against poverty, and people ridiculed for their faith.

Figure of a Scythian warrior wearing a Phrygian cap depicted on a spectacular gold comb made by Greeks to Scythian taste, early 4th century BC, seen @hermitage_museum A 📝: normally I only post my own photos of objects I’ve seen with my own 👁️👁️, but I had to make an exception here because photography is strictly forbidden 🚫 at the Golden Room of the Hermitage where this object is exhibited and I came very close to being arrested for several attempts of taking undercover pictures of various items of interest. 🤦🏻‍♂️ Either way, this post makes a perfect continuation to my previous one featuring a Phrygian style helmet @mfaboston

Even without the sword this tomb effigy of Alonso de Mera is quite remarkable. Apparently originally the sculpture also included a helmet and a set of gauntlets laying at his feet but alas they didn't survive. Ca. Mid-1590s, Spain. Seen @mfaboston

#backstory :... I'm suppose to look for skulls and bones today,  to add for my Halloween coord, but I can't find any decent ones anywhere!!! huhu I should have hoarded them all last year at that one Halloween thrift shop, now all I can find are Christmas decorations.. 😭😭😭.. On the bright side, I met this lovely doll that calls to my inner being out of all the vintage dolls for sale. I also got a flower press tool that I've wanted for so long. Plus a good amount of pearl accessories to add to my collection. I end up buying laces and feathers at the fabric store to upgrade my witch hat with.

Stopped at this fun little shop on the way home from Woodstock, VT last weekend--The Cottage by the Brook (didn't see the brook, too busy looking), just outside of Bellows Falls. Very nice young woman runs it. Closes down for the winter in a few weeks. Lots of painted furniture, old signs, and funky, weathered garage grunge. My fav chippy metal chairs galore. Stuff scattered all around outside and left to mellow in the elements. We'll return in the Spring....
