Sara's Home Tour Last Room: The Den

Welcome to Sara's Den!

 Sara as a child
The artist has drawn many beautiful portraits.

I love this trunk!  She had this when she and I were roommates in the early 80s.  I see a very important book The Bible.  I gave her this courting candle pictured on the left.  The candle was positioned in the candle stick and when the candle burned down to that position then it was time for the suitor to go home!  Cute they actually did that.  I've included a link about Courting Candles HERE just for fun!

Photo doesn't do this antique any justice but it is a beautiful piece.


 Love this lamp and the artwork.  A wonderful place to do some work.

 Yes you know I love her antique pottery and teapot collections.

Wonderful reading area in the room

Not the best photo but I wanted to show the depth of this room.  It is huge!

 This concludes Sara's Home Tour and I thank her for allowing us into her warm and inviting home full of antiques and collectables.
