Snoopy Sundays....Picky Peeks......Number Nibbles????
Since I just pulled this guy from the freezer, Ill start with him~ no. 918~(918.2016.41). This is a closeup of the top of a boy's brown wool hat, c1865-70. Patent leather edging, with silk covered buttons, cord and chenille trim. If you are wondering why it was hanging out in the freezer, it was to kill any stray wee beasties! I am very careful to not introduce any bugs into my storage, so when I get something new, its get s a thorough check for insects, eggs, seeds....bug carcasses.....anything living that would want to feast on the fibers. Hats are particularly hard to check, because there are so many nooks and crannies, and in this instance, so much area on the inside one cannot get into to see...so they go into the freezer for at least 2 weeks. Wools in particular are so very fragile and susceptible to moth damage, one can never be too careful!
So please leave me a comment for a number~ you can post up to three numbers!!
