Isn't she beautiful !
This old battered piece of loveliness is simply charming.
She stands alone in a drafty corridor at Tocal Homestead in all of her glory.
I wish she could tell her story of times gone by. I wish that she could tell me about the beautiful silk and velvet dresses that brushed past her in 1840.
How I wish the beautiful silk parasols still stood in her little umbrella stand and the beautiful hats still hung on her hooks.
She is just a little bit rusty and her patina is just perfect if you like the shabby chic style. She has a pale grey marble shelf which has well and truly stood the test of time.
How I wish she lived at my home !
