Tempus Fugit (time flies). An ebonized mahagony and inlaid boulle wall clock c1850 that originally hung in an antebellum Charleston mansion. Alabaster face with gilt bronze accents and handpainted numerals on porcelain. High-end French “Marti Et Cie” 8-day movement that keeps time and gongs just as it did over 165 years ago...a gem I couldn’t pass up💁‍♂️...photobombed by Godet’s Aurore bronze c1880...#antiques #arthistory #19thcentury #clockworks #antiqueclock #french #interiordesign #precivilwar #charleston #walldecor #apartmentdecor #apartmentliving #france #wallclock #bronze #sculpture #godet

The previous owners had the kitchen re-done a few years ago and during construction found remnants of an old Boston newspaper under the floorboards. They let us keep them saying, "they belong with the house." There are some clues that point to them being from 1854, which would pre-date The Boston Globe. What's still readable mentions a variety of topics from the manufacturing of silverware in Boston, to the sailing of local clipper ships, railroad departure times, and even an arrest warrant issued for an Alabama man for the killing of a slave. This author describes the murderer as "a wretch." We'd really love to find out exactly what this is.

Decent find for $5. They don’t make them like they used to. #precivilwar

Still needs much much work but #gilbert the #precivilwar #squarepiano at least is starting to get some exercise on his four stubby legs. Yes @nlfoxe i will go focus on my other #fourleggedfriends now. #squaregrandpiano #earlypiano #aminor #antiquepiano #adoptdontshop @authenticsound_org

#CurrentlyReading : The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead.
.
Having heard such great things, The Underground Railroad was the book I was most excited about for this month (I still am😬) but I have to give it a break! No I'm not DNF'ing it but only giving myself some time from this devasting book.
.
I've read almost half of it (a few pages short of half🙈) and it's really heavy and emotionally draining!
Also, having read Homegoing less than a month ago, I'm feeling a little muddled up🤔
Does this happen to you as well?
.
#QOTD : What is the most heartbreaking book you've ever read? Do you read them giving yourself time to heal or do you just wanna get it done with?
.
I love books that make me feel so many emotions and this is the most draining book I've read this year! I'm gonna pick up some light-hearted book for the time being and will resume this in a week or 10 days!

We had the privilege to show this 200 year old piece of Arnaudville history this morning. 1862 Bushville Hwy #nealycookgroup #historichomes #precivilwar

My grandparent’s home as it exists today in Level Land, SC. It hasn’t been occupied for 20+ years but is under the watchful eye of my cousin who lives next door. This home was built before the civil war and is typical of the architecture of farm homes at that time. #southcarolina #history #familyhome #precivilwar #precivilwarhomes#susanlloydphoto #susanlloydphotography

Went to the grocery store and they had a rack of books on local NE Ohio history. Flipped through one of them and found our home! Of course, I had to buy the book 🤗#ohiohistory #historicalhomesofohio #historicalhome #nationalregistryofhistoricplaces #centuryhome #nrhp #ohio #italianate #precivilwar #evergreenhome1860

Finally, after all the sorting, research and photographing we are ready to set up a huge tent and sell by auction the items we have decided to let go. Hard decisions but the proceeds will go toward continued restoration of the house and property. Believe me, we are still keeping tons! Mark June 2nd on your calendars and come see us!
