This Is Our Home

If you read my post on January 16th, I told about a photo postcard I had purchased of a woman and child in front of a house around the turn of the century. Penciled on the back is "this is our home" no names, dates or location. The door knob plate was the piece the store would not sell because it had lost its tag. I went back a week later and they still didn't know anything about it. One of the guys there said "for pete's sake just sell it to her for 50 cents." Then the lady said "how about a dollar" and I said "I liked his price better" and she said "he is not in charge" so anyway I was happy I got the piece. I had the Italian metal picture frame for a while just waiting to use it for something. The keys, pin, and buttons are from my great aunts home in New Jersey. SOLD
