A Moment In Time

I am searching through dusty attics, peeking in wardrobes and armoires, looking and sorting for goodies to bring to the auction floor.

Each dresser drawer, cupboard and cubbyhole holds a fragment of a person's life.

Some pieces tattered but treasured, capturing a moment in time so special that it has been tucked away, forgotten. Others that were gazed upon, caressed and remembered, bringing a tear of joy or sadness to the cheek. I will be travelling in that fleeting moment almost evanescent.

I will have the pleasure of separating and categorizing these life long accumulations.

I'll be busy for awhile, perhaps unable to post but upon my return I shall share the treasures found.

It's Springtime and for those of us in the appraisal and auction business - let the show begin.

What a wonderful time you will have Susan! It is wonderful to find stories within pieces and just as wonderful to imagine the time and people that held them dear. Enjoy Susan, I look forward to your return.

Dear Susan,
I'll be thinking of you as you are sorting through the treasures.

The act of looking through a drawer or closet can be hard when it belonged to a person you love.

Thinking good thoughs for you.
