Life in Old South Central Alabama

My photo
South of Birmingham, Alabama, United States
I am an antique trader in central Alabama....I love old houses... My log home was built in 1817 by my ancestors Benjamin and Hannah Harless Wilson .............. Outside the house are herb gardens and lots of pass-along plants................ No one in Alabama is in a hurry about anything......... Visitors think that the garden needs weeding and the furniture needs polishing....I am a direct descendant of Joseph Towne, whose two sisters Rebecca Towne Nurse and Mary Towne Easty were hanged in Salem, Massachusetts, in 1692 as witches. I am also a direct descendant of Pocahontas and husband John Rolfe.

Primitive pine desk square nailed and holding

The pine primitive slant top/ lift top desk came out of hiding last weekend in Bibb County.  Square nailed with a few round ones added later. Brass hinges. Scrub top.  Blue-gray everything else.   Measures 36" long,  28 1/2 " tall,  16 1/2" deep. 


  1. I like the old desk and love all the jugs.
    Makes me think back when I lived in Symsonia Kentucky ( outside Paducah) and had all primitives in my house

  2. You are truly finding some wonderful things
