  2. I love the hanger. Too bad about the marker (I hate when that happens!). I have a little collection of vintage wood hangers going...very fun, since they are also practical.

    1. Yeah, it's so annoying - I may give it a light sand and see if that works.

  4. The skeleton illustration is awesome... I love that kind of stuff. I'm always picking up old wood hangers, too; they're just so much nicer than my usual cheap plastic ones.
    Thanks for linking up with us!

    1. I may have to search for the perfect frame! I have quite a few old medical books stashed away -one called The Anatomy Of The Foetus (1920's) that I wasn't allowed to read when I was pregnant for fear that I'd have a 2 headed baby!

    2. Old medical books are excellent. I only have one & it`s about deformed Fetuses. Don`t know the name off the top of my head & it`s packed away somewhere. Everything that can go wrong with the fetus & photos.
