Are you like me and you’re always on the hunt for fun, inexpensive projects that you can use to decorate in your home or to give as gifts? A couple of years ago when we finished building our farmhouse and moved in, I was a little stumped with the bare walls in my hallway. It’s a short hallway and I didn’t think it was exactly the wall for a gallery of pictures, it called for something simple and unique. About that time I read an article about old patent illustrations being a work of art. I knew right away that I was going on the hunt.
