Indoor Archeology


Another day of doing some indoor archeology. I am digging up the past. I found the stencil I used when I stenciled our living room/dining room at least a dozen years ago. Ummm... stenciling is still the latest trend in the world of interior design, right? Don't answer. I don't have time to paint over it now.

I also found one of my favorite ashtrays. No, I don't smoke but of course I have ashtrays that I don't use or need. It's a little silver doggy from the 1939 New York World's Fair. I think I must have paid a quarter for him. He was all tarnished so I polished him up a while ago (since I have no intention of selling him) but now he is getting tarnished again (I will leave him alone). I will use him to hold doo-dads on my desk.

And I cleaned behind my desk today. Here it is for your viewing pleasure:

But it's not as bad as it looks - haha. The speakers fell off the back of the computer when I was moving the desk, so the speakers aren't normally down there. Gotta put Conan on ebay - not kidding. I sold several of those identical postcards a while ago and I think this is my last one. He is getting ready to start his new show next month so I better get it listed soon.

Remember that little ugly thing I bought the other week for .50? I put it up on ebay and it currently has a $29.99 bid - and of course I had a typo in my listing. Par for the course. Here is the ebay listing if you want to see how it does.

Glad you updated your listing to the correct number.......LOL!

If I were you, I would sell the ashtray as well. You don't smoke and I know World's Fair stuff sells well....esp. from that date! Susan C.
