Mantel Musings

Paderewski's bust, García's 100th birthday letter, brain and whatever-you-call-it coral, Head of a Youth, Empire shaving mirror bought for its old glass, my mother's 1870 Seth Thomas (still running though I need to have the chime restored), old silver candlesticks, and electrified Aesthetic Period oil lamps.

I took this triptych of photos some weeks ago and plumb forgot about them, finding them in a folder on my desktop this morning while cleaning things up. It's that what one does in Spring, right? The digital cleaning, I should note, has extended to deleting my account at Pinterest. It was grand, but like every illicit affair, it had to end. Books are better friends, and have more benefits. 


I welcome your comments.
