Antique Wheat Grinder

Anyone know the official name?  Found it and love it.  It used to be used for grinding up wheat into flour.


I love finding beautiful things I never even knew existed.  This one has a pretty gold nailhead design. 
The Pure Style Home online store is opening up soon and & I can't wait!!

If you're in the DC area this weekend, be sure to go to the DC flea!!  Eddie & Jaithan are here & would love it if you could come!!  They're the best!!  Check here for details.


xoxo, Lauren

Love it! Take the grinder thing out, place a glass top on the base and it would be an interesting side table

Very cool!!

P.S. David is going to be in Virginia for 10 days, leaving Wed. I told him he should visit you but he is too shy!! He will be seeing Gettysburg and then a short visit back to DC and then to Charlottesville, etc.

I am going home to visit my family the day after he gets back. I hate doing a separate vacation but ALL my family is out east and once a year isn't always enough. So this year I am going a second time. He loves Civil War stuff, so I said "why don't you go to Virginia and PA and see all the stuff you missed".

He will have an awesome time. Meant to email you. I wanted to let you know in case he ever ran into car trouble etc. nearby. He never worries about that stuff but I always do!! I told him you are up near the Tyson malls, so he will be passing right by!! If I were with him, we'd be comin' for a visit!!

Hope all is well with the new everythingz...

Talk soon, Terri xox
