i loved this piece the instant i saw it...it is a reproduction of a piece from the late 1800's...i do not know the area that it came from, information was long ago lost... eli named this piece "the farmhouse", which i thought was just the perfect name. for it has that 'farmhouse' look that i have in my mind; blue, red, off white, golden brown and green...just seem like farmhouse colors to me....maybe he remembers the time when his dad and i were determined to buy an old farmhouse, fix-it-up and call it home...we visited many old houses when he was small where he was able to run through pastures, climb into barns looking for treasures and imagining himself what it would be like to have a farm....

"cops and robbers"
This is a reproduction game board - the original was dated back to the late 1800's and sold for $18,560. I chose the name 'cops and robbers' for it reminded me of kids playing outside, hiding behind objects with the sheriff in the center. I found being the mother of boys, no matter if you let them play with toy guns or not, they will take sticks or other found objects to make their own...
