Last Monday I blogged at Petticoats & Pistols about what you would take back to the Old West. Take a look here—the comments are fun to read.
Today I thought I’d turn the question on its head. What do you wish we still had from the past? It doesn’t have to be from the 1800s—my choice would be the sprinkling head my grandmother used for the laundry. It was made of metal with tiny little holes, and you put it into a pop bottle (that's a soda bottle to you, Tex). The steam irons of today don’t hold a candle to that thing for dampening shirts for ironing! I found some on eBay and etsy--but they just don't look right somehow.
