|A few - a very few - of the chatkas that have found their way to St Vincent de Paul or the consignment house. If memory serves its the tail end of the lot. Papier-mache pumpkin anyone?|
While our Liz is collecting more "stuff" we're divesting ourselves of things - those banquet sized linen tables clothes and matching napkins (yes I know Cathy you didn't expect that many!!!!), silverware, decanters, the second set of pots and pans, the three extra dinner services, those framed posters from the 70s and chatkas - lord help us the chatkas. How many sets of dachshund shaped knife rests does one household need??? Many things have gone to Saint Vincent de Paul and many others - including our Mexican bedroom set - have gone to an consignment house here in Ottawa that specializes in Estate Sales.
Which brings me to my musical selection for today (stolen without shame from Elizabeth): a little ditty by the wonderful Cheryl Wheeler who seems to love Estate Sales as much as Liz does. Maybe I should get them both to come up and take a look - though it isn't quite like "going through dead people's houses" they'd certainly see "all the things we've collected". Maybe either one of them would be interested in a lovely set of dachshund knife rests?????
