I hope everyone had wonderful holidays! Ours were very nice here, though Blaine apparently confided to Santa (and not to her parents) that she wanted a hair-streaking kit, and she was very disappointed not to get it. Her birthday’s in only a few weeks, though. :-)
Do any of you have the slightest idea what the objects below are? They were in my antique desk when I got it several years ago. (I sadly have to switch this desk out with something modern–it’s really a child’s desk and is killing me ergonomically.) The box was with a really cool inkwell and a letter holder. It’s 2 1/2 inches wide and is embossed “Bradley & Hubbard Mfg. Co.” on the bottom. The round item is about 2 inches across, and it’s heavy. It has a screw on one end and a hook on the other.
