An old stack, I love the worn corners, most of these books are over 100 years old.
The dice belonged to my grandparents they are old bakelite, maybe from the 30s.
Just a fun composition, and a study of values. I like how the gold on the pages show up but the wood blocks are too dark. The old shoe form is to make a woman's high heel. The nest has a lining of Winnie's hair, it dropped out of a fir tree last winter, I felt so lucky to find it..... yes I know her hair she leaves it for all of us.
Here are some very old woodland Indian moccasins and a choker from a different tribe, the bead work is unbelievable.
