Day 6/33: Scott's Anniversary Present
Casa de la Vanderdogan is a mess, what with the shift change from dining room to library yesterday. Scott so lovingly looked at the "after" and said, "Change it back!" With a smile, of course. So as I shifted furniture along, I thought - I don't think that I ever showed the antique Carborundum sign that I purchased Scott for our anniversary. I know that I talked about it on the blog, but alas, here it is.
It's on the longest wall of our sunroom, here in this 5' expanse of wall between french doors and a wall of windows, the 4 foot wide advertisement for Carborundum products printed in 1921 is a wash of warm oranges, which were once vibrant reds. We had the sign professionally restored after finding it in an antique store, the things I do for him...
Hope you enjoy!
