Excavating my Past......
This is the current state of the great "dig out".
My sewing corner with quilt books and my steadfast Bernina...(I also have a Singer featherweight which has already been carried up the stairs...great little jewel of a machine!)
All of this will be toted up and gone through....and Mr. Pear will bring up the pine box (hmmmm!? 'pine box' , should I really be burying some of this stuff?!)
and the walnut chest of drawers,.... after I carry up the drawers!
Then just lamp and a couple of tables...one is a pine kitchen table from England....
[I really thought I would be too busy to post while doing this, but I am finding that doing the post satisfies my creative drive for the moment and gives me a wonderful rest from the mental and physical chore of dealing with this! It is kind of fun and humorous to spend time with all of this "stuff" again.]
Meanwhile in another part of the room we find...2 more chests of drawers sans drawers, as I have already carried those up....and a desk, a green plastic storage stacker ( that has to go!)....and a printer.
A John Kerry for President poster (which I had kept to hold my own against the loud opinions of Mr. Pear , the "hawk".)
A pink laundry basket from a local antique mall filled with paintings and canvases.....
And an old matted drawing of a still life from art studies.....India ink. My professors set up the fascinating still life of rusty auto fender, hub cap, old shoe, animal jaw bone and rubber end of a plunger....
Now that this has been water damaged, I was able to finally "trash" it....after taking the photograph...(oh, the things we cling to!!!!)
Another bit "unearthed"............a photo from a day in Paris in May of 1971.
Thank-you Mom and Dad! I had a great time and still have wonderful memories!
Now it's time to carry up some more!!!
