On Floors & Behind Doors ~ Sunday Musings

Months ago someone asked for me to show more detail on my Santo.

It was one of those things you keep in a corner of your mind that you intend to do someday.

Sometimes it actually does get done.

Much of the time it just gets put away somewhere, and before you know it December has turned into July. Or almost August. Or 2015.

I have corners of my house this way too. Filled with "someday" things, and possesions that never get their day in the sun. Almost every household does. Certainly every antiques dealer's home.

Besides the "someday" objects, there are plenty of items at rest. Finding a peaceful corner until they are called into action. We look at these belongings almost everyday without seeing them. Here are a few of mine. . . .


The mesmerist cat, my brother-in-law's painting, and a broken clock.

A perfectly kept house is the sign of a misspent life.
 Not guilty. Hope you're having fun!
Ciao! for now!
