Can't put it off much longer

so I'm attacking the "guest room" which actually has some "stuff" that belongs in my sewing room.

So here are a few photos of things I'm trying to find places for:

Central Asian textiles



and another shelf "done"


.... later: Got too involved in "desk things" from my former desk, so no more photos for today.

Tomorrow: photos of antique Russian linen towels

the items next to the matryoshka dolls are distaffs -- look at
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Distaff
http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/166053/distaff
or Google further! They were used until the 20's or 30s, and then were just considered a folk item. You can't find them anymore except in musuems!
