We are back from attending services for my mother in Washington, and made a huge push today to get the floor cleared in the dining room and living room (see this posting).
So empty boxes were taken to the garage, tops found for Tupperware containers, and then it was time to bring in the "picture" boxes and unwrap paintings, pictures and photos. We were able to hang about 1/4 of the items we are keeping before we ran out of picture hooks!
But while the handyman-aka husband was drilling holes, I was dusting and polishing and arranging "things." Here are a few items that I challenged myself to "try" to get decent photos of:
silver museum replica of a Norwegian sugar spoon, bought in Voss, Norway, for my spoon collection
large "planet" paperweight from art glass collection of Josh Simpson
Russian salt cellars
