We are told that life is change, which is certainly true when I consider the process set in motion when we reconfigured our closets—the subject of my last post. Now I am in the process of selling an Empire dresser and an Victorian writing desk which you see here.
I bought the desk from a shop on West 79th that is still there. Overpriced, but very much beloved; the desk held court in the bedroom for more than a decade. After bringing home a gorgeous antique Spanish table from my father's estate, I knew it was time the desk found a new home.
So today, after taking out the contents, I set up a tripod and took a few photographs: marveling at the burled maple and walnut that made my heart sing when I first saw it. Now it is gracing the pages of Craig's List. Goodbye old friend. I've loved every moment we're shared together.
