Another Mirror to Work On

I always wanted one of these mirrors with the applied corners that extend out from the corners of the frame. I think they were typical of New York, and while they look great, if the mirror is off the wall and left standing on edge, they are susceptible to damage. These survived but there is damage to the amazing projecting elements (that look like they came off the front bumpers of a 1950's Buick). Already disassembled for storage until I get a chance to work on this one.

Too Many Books?

I saw a book for sale, but wasn't sure if I already had a copy. I had a book database years ago, but it couldn't transfer to new computer, and it went by the wayside. So, I thought it was time to start over. I try to keep to reference books only, and even at that, am up to almost 400, just from the shelves. I still have to catalog the ones in storage. I think it would have been easier to just buy the book - especially since no copy of it has turned up  in my collection.

Clearing the Jungle

With one sunny day before the rains settle in for a while, I cleaned out the area shown in As my "Christmas tree" grows, I will cut down some of the surrounding trees.
