After I read Veros article about Hornbooks http://verom.over-blog.com/article-1415582.html I pulled out this little item we have since always in our home.

I always saw that there is something to put a sheet of paper in, but I didn´t know how and why this little silver thing was used in the past. Now I think I know, this is something like a Hornbook!

I think I´ll stitch something for it. Now I have to look for a Hornbook design which is about 5 x 7cm.

Hallo Romy,
Ich glaube dass ich Sie enttäuschen muss. So etwas habe ich auch geerbt. Das ist der Rahmen eines zerbrochenen Handspiegels. Sehr dünnes Spiegelglas mit  Petit Point Stickerei auf Karton dahinter. 
Liebe Grüsse aus Korsika
PS Noch immer keine Lust zum Sticken? Schade.

I am jealous. This is truly a treasure. I'm sure you'll make something remarkable of it!

It's a treasure!!!
I love the handle: it's stunning.
Now you have to choose a nice alphabet and stitch for it :-))
