My grandfather lived in the mountains of Abruzzo where in winter it often snows. He used to wear these snowshoes for walking on snow. (5 years and 1047 days ago)

This is old as dirt, because it IS dirt. This is a macro of a Cuneiform specimen I got about 15 years ago. Cuneiform is among the earliest forms of written communication, from the "Fertile Crescent" area of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers (present day Iraq). The earliest forms are around 5,000 years old. This specimen is about 4,000 years old. They would form tablets of clay (large ones are usually about 5 or 6 inches across), cut a reed from the river bank which had a wedge shaped stalk, and press characters into the wet clay before putting it out in the sun to bake. This particular one is a receipt acknowledging the donation of some goats and sheep to a local temple. Talk about keeping tax records a long time! (5 years and 1050 days ago)

This is precious to my husband.
It was given to his mother, by her mother when she was a little girl. It was broken by my mother-in-law, who was severely scolded and told that was totally unacceptable behaviour.
The French inscription translates to;
"if you wish to live in total peace,
You listen, You watch and You say nothing. (5 years and 1050 days ago)
