This 1895 house is a tank with wood walls. It's unbelievably solid. I try to find objects that have a similar sense of craftsmanship, whether it's surprisingly hefty, or extremely delicate. And sometimes I'm drawn to objects because there's just something about them. I hope you enjoy shopping at Silver Bee Vintage!
