Awesome Little Braucherei Find

Sometimes the most amazing discoveries are sitting in our closets or storage areas!

My mother had asked if she could borrow one of the old family Bibles or other books that I have in my possession. I have several old Bibles and other books ranging from the Colonial period forward, though some are not in the best of shape, so I gave one that is in good condition; it is a Bible from 1844. 

This particular Bible had belonged to my great-grandmother and then my paternal grandmother. As we were looking through it, I found a little bag squeezed in the pages. 

This little discovery turned out to be a little Braucherei bag with a charm written on a piece of paper within it. The paper is in very delicate condition, so I have not opened it up fully, but it is definitely a charm, and I can see a fair amount of handwriting through the paper. 

When I get the paper opened fully and can decipher what is written upon it, I will share it.
