Wake up everybody.
The sun is shining!
Today I want to share with you something that my husband brought home for me last week.
It was supposed to be a surprise for my birthday, but I caught him sneaking in the house with it and I just couldn't wait.
I did a little research on it and found out that it is a European bell that hung in the hallway of a monastery.
It's made of brass and this one has a lot of patina.
It was used to wake the nuns or monks and also to signal certain prayer times.
It has a really great gongy sound.
It's so unusual and the history behind it is fascinating to me.
Now I just need to find the perfect place to hang it.
What's the most unusual thing you've found lately?
