~~Victorian Assemblage, Courtesy of My Good Friend~~

Several weeks ago you may remember me writing about my good friend, Pam,  who had given me a huge supply of antique finds her family had no use for. Well she came through again, and I couldn't be more thrilled!  This truly is a testament that one woman's trash is another one's  treasure!!  I will be sharing some old images with you  in the week to come,  but last night I put together this assemblage out of the ambrotype, ( or daguerreotype, I'm not sure which), an old ledger cover, ledger paper, a verse from a fourth grade reader and more.  I threw in a few pieces I had on hand, and THIS is what transpired from it.  It is one of those pieces I will have a hard time parting with, and may even later decide to keep it for myself.  For now it is in my Etsy shop .  Pam, again, thank you from the bottom of this old musty antique find loving heart!!
