I've had a fun Christmas Day and I hope you have too if you celebrate it.
I went to my Mom's to enjoy a midday feast with my brother and sisters and some of their children and grandchildren.... and exchange presents.
One of my grown nieces, Miranda was there and totally surprised me with this quirky gift of tin art.
She said she had seen it in an antique store and it made her think of me, so she bought it for me.
It has two figures on a seesaw.... or teeter totter, however you prefer to call it. I grew up calling them seesaws.
It is made of tin and is obviously handmade.
I LOVE that about it.
The center is made to allow them to go up and down.
So fun !
I am very curious about it.
I wonder who made it and where.
I may never know, but it won't be because I don't try to find out.
It has no maker's mark that I have found so far and the way the base is, makes me wonder if it at some time it was part of a bigger piece. I don't quite know why, but it's just a feeling about it. Whether I ever know or not, I will still love it all the same.
Hope you've had a very happy day, however you chose to spend it.
