I am meant to be doing a list of things at the moment…. Study, housecleaning, writing a book, weeding the garden and many other things…. So of course I am doing something that could have waited…. I have just spent an hour lightly scrubbing and then waxing an old wooden desktop file drawer….
The large murano vase is not for show, it is holding down the veneer I just glued back on…. It only occurred to me when I was taking the photo, that most people don’t use 60s art glass because they couldn’t find a brick…. I forgot to take a before picture of the file box, possibly because I was not actually going to do anything, except take a look at it… it has been sitting around for a few months, it was dirty and the wood was dry and cracking… and it had a $5 sticker on it at a garage sale, in a cheeky mood i said $2… she said yes… So it is now waxed and buffed and all solid again, it has felt pads underneath I put candle wax on the runners to make the draw slide smoothly… Right now I should get back to things on the list, but instead I will probably make a vintage label to go in the display section of the copper pull….
After that I might do something that actually needs to be done…. or I could take a nap…..
