Last week was beyond horrible, the crazy arctic weather and family members having serious medical issues made it stressful beyond belief. Things are looking more hopeful on all fronts, hoping the good stays with me.
I tried to get some better photos of the new merchandise and I think it is an improvement. Now to get them listed is the next order of business.
I found these odd little things, and puzzled over their possible use, they have holes at the top and have a white powder inside. I thought about something to sprinkle over pen and ink letters and I was right! They are "pounce pots", filled with dried cuttlefish bone that was sprinkled over unsized paper to make the surface more smooth for writing.
