Found Furniture

So fun to turn down a one way street to try to get back to the main drag in Dormont and find this couch by the side of a building. Waiting for me. Rear view mirror check, pull to the curb. No one behind. Even better. Blinkers on. Window rolled down. Click. Like finding the hidden egg in a hunt.

Where Did the End Table Go?

I was picking up a quilt in a Wexford neighborhood and saw this furniture out in front of a house. You remember how I like to photograph what’s left at the curb. I pulled over and tried to get a photo but it was tight so I thought, “I’ll pick up the quilt, then drive back this same way and shoot it on the way home.” But someone scooped the end table before I got back!.

Second photo. Where did the end table go?
First photo My sister always says. “Shoot it when you see it. It might be gone later”

Our Mom, Morgan le Fay and Slipcovers

Throwback Thursday.

This photo has to be taken in the late sixties. My sister’s cat on her lap- Morgan le Fay. I don’t remember our mom being particularly fond of cats. Her parents were avid birders.

I did a transfer of the photo onto watercolor paper in a class I took.

My sister and I were just saying wish we hadn’t discarded those slip covers. Slip covers were popular years ago. The yellow was much brighter in person. And a bold black stripe.
