I have been in the seemingly endless process of purging, remodeling and revamping my nest; a long difficult process of disorder, chaos and constant head scratching wondering how it is that I have acquired so much stuff.
As you know, the kitchen cabinet painting has been ongoing. With the cabinets painted I can move on to painting the inside of pantry and selecting floor. Oh what fun!
But today, it's not the kitchen I want to talk about, it's my studio. It too has been turned upside down, purged of all things unnecessary and, eventually will be put back together.
I had to first find a cabinet/storage unit to put all the loose things that are necessary for a designing, visualizing, making studio. And as you can imagine there are A LOT of loose things.
Luckily I found just the thing! A Library Card Catalogue no longer needed by the Portsmouth RI Free Public Library.
After a short, but lively conversation with Rich the Librarian, the sale was made and the Oak Card Catalogue was mine!
That was just the beginning.
This morning I drove the 1+ hours to RI in light snow to retrieve my soon to be favorite piece of furniture. Admittedly a beautiful drive even if the sun was vacationing in the Caribbean.
So there it sits...still. I have not had the courage to go remove it from the trunk and haul it up to my 2nd floor apartment.
DAILY FACTOID** The concept and creation of the first cards used for catalogs occurred in France around 1789.
