Library Desk Treasures

The library at the homestead houses a favorite piece of furniture, a tiger maple desk, given to me by my Mom. It was given to her by a dear neighbor, Mrs. Terry. There gathered are my most treasured photographs...

with pencils I brought back from Baker Steet, Doyle in his cowboy outfit, Mom and Dad, son, Doyle again at Christmas, and Krumpet in his
Sherlock Holmes' cap. His little hat placed gently on the frame..

and Dad, this was his detective work photo.

Yes, there seems to be a detective theme with Dad...

and our family last name is Doyle ( Sir Arthur Conan- related??) after all .

thanks for looking and visiting my homestead...

What an lovely table. I really enjoyed the photos. That pen and ink set is such a rare site. All those silver frames just draw you in.
Thank you for sharing your treasures with us!
Happy VTT!

Lovely. You know, my grandma had little heart frames like that that has our picture in them. I had forgot all about them until I saw yours. Funny, how almost every week something on VTT inspires me to remember something from my past that I had forgotten about. I wish I knew what happened to those little frames! Happy VTT!
