Man, I had planned on posting yesterday but I was worn out! I took the last 7 days off to work on my house and man I made the most of it!
There’s still tons of coal in the ground (left over from the “coal chute days” as I say) and I couldn’t resit picking a few chunks out of the ground along with that piece of old pipe we found. I think those scissors are fairly new, there’s not much rust and they still work pretty well. The best finds though? Those ink wells!
They were pretty dirty so I cleaned them out. Initially I thought I would find that they weren’t really for ink
but my stained pinky finger convinced me that I had for-real ink wells on my hands.
I didn’t want to wash all the ink out so I cleaned them just enough to get the dirt off and then put them up on my picture ledge in the living room.
The coal went into a bowl and and went up onto the mantle.
on the other side of the mantle is a jar filled with all the old rusty hardware that came out when we tore down the sheds (they were gone by Week 6!) Basically, that’s a big ol’ jar of tetanus.
Does everyone decorate with trash?? Is that weird?
