After the Ball was over...

The garage sale, actually...offerings to the neighborhood gods. Irish kitsch, with a label reading "luck", in case anyone misses the point.

Some very shiny wood items from the Philippines, with a spoon reading "Soup 10", this was from a neohippie gathering a few years back which wasn't quite my cup of tea (so no sentimental value). Now you know, but it will probably be a mystery to the person who removes the set.

A somewhat random collection of patterned whites, vaguely coordinated with fire hydrant.

Don't you wish you lived nearby?

Ed: All gone now...

The Afterlife

...Of objects

Pictured above, a homemade white cotton petticoat stitched by a woman who was a square dancing enthusiast, from a box of many other garments she had sewn for herself during the 1960s-70s. Put in the etsy store, purchased by someone in Germany named Dieter. What a journey this garment is making, but I like to think that Dieter and the maker of this garment, both enthusiasts, could have sat down and had a wonderful conversation in a suitably noisy beer hall.
