Thanks...bowing while blushing :)Parsley... Hornbooks were used by young children in long ago before modern textbooks and primers, where they attached pages of the alphabet and other learning aids to a pice of wood and then covered it with a transparent sheet of mica or horn (Hornbook) to protect it...how they did that I have no idea...and the kids would attach it to their waste or wrist to carry it. :)I didn't know until I looked it up after cruising thru Ellen's site one day.Hugs
What a lovely piece - congrats!!!
Your hornbook is lovely!
Great job, Ma! It's lovely! I appreciated the history lesson, as well, and I didn't know what a hornbook was, either. Very neat! :0)
