My mom hung a little trumpet in our stairwell when I was growing up. It was the brass trumpet that my great Aunt Cora blew when WWI ended in 1914.

It’s late Friday and I’ve found a sale on line that ends tomorrow and everything left is half price. I hadn’t planned to do a sale this weekend, but pictures on web site look really interesting, especially the books. Makes my blood move a little faster. I’m sure you know the feeling. The hunt just gets in your blood. 😂

Now I see where your love of old things originated from
How beautiful.
I love your stories.

Lovely story. Thanks for sharing, friend.

I would take my young children through the antique shops, but for some reason as adults they are not found of antiques. Hummm? They do like the quirky though. The trumpet story just makes me smile.

Many of those antiques Mom bought (your Aunt Marie), I still have. Sister Ginny has a few and I think a few have been passed on to niece Courtney.
