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.

Old Paris Porcelain Vases

I bought a pair of Old Paris porcelain vases from a sale in Sarasota last week. They are 13 1/2 inches tall and the lady promised to double box them. 

Old Paris is the term for beautiful things made in France in the 19th century.  There were numerous porcelain factories producing fantastic wares at the time.   Since my downstairs is pure primitive, these will be hidden upstairs in the room where no one ever goes.
