1940 Ironing Board and Stained Glass

My Mother purchased this wooden ironing board in 1940 for $3.19.  She paid it out Twenty-five Cents a week until it was paid for.  I am going to put it to good use...

Poppa made this beautiful Stained Glass Bird
in a class in the late 1970's.  I do wish I could
get him interested in doing stained glass work again :)

  1. A fantastic way to exhibit your treasures Edna! Nice to have the historical story to go with it too|! Love the stained glass window as well. Would be great to have a window frame for it somewhere - the bathroom perhaps? Front door? It's lovely! Your dolls look great there too and that lamp.....!
