Oh an old sad iron (I don't know why they are called that - maybe someone else will). The wood handle is beautiful.

Your iron is adorable-I remember my Mum's flat-irons sitting on the back of the fuel stove staying hot!

What a fun treasure, but I bet you are glad you don't have to use it anymore!

Your iron is now a piece of art. I love the shape of the handle.

What a neat little iron. Most people would not have thought about keeping it. I had one similar but it is gone now. What a nice memory to hand down.

Wonderful little flat iron...I think they were called sad irons because it was a sad day when you had to iron-heating the flat iron on a hot stove!

Baal, baal, baal, heb ik tig van je leuke logjes gemist omdat de feed niet werkte. Ik heb nu beide feeds verwijderd en nieuwe gemaakt zodat ik steeds de nieuwste kan volgen, hoop ik.
Wat een supergezellige weblog heb je toch.
