Ch Ch Changes With My Old Postal Sorter

Yesterdee we were as bizzy as 2 beez.

We moved my huge postal sorter from our current living room,

where it loyally served as a media center + display piece:

Now it’s parked in our Dutch colonial’s dining room,

where it is being pressed into service

as a home office + display piece:

Wait.  What?

You exchanged the sorter’s original base

with our beloved pine farmhouse table? you ask?

Has the world gone mad?

No — the table works best for my home office hopes + dreams.

See?  It provides space for sitting + working.

I may or may not keep that vintage rolling stool there.

Stay tuned.

But where will you dine? you might be asking now.

Please.

We’ll park it on the couch, as always — HA!

But seriously.  If we do have guests,

we’ll enjoy our meals on this round table that we already had:

Does it not look like it was made for that window bay?

I think so!

Isn’t it great when a plan comes together?

Let have one more look-see.

Please notice my vintage blue library ladder,

which is very groovy, too:

Its pretty pale blue plays very nicely

with the pale blue of our ceiling, don’tcha think?

Now let’s look just a tad bit beyond —

into our adjoining living room.

There’s our new chair from IKEA:

It’s their gray chenille  EKENA chair:

Its combination of traditional + modern style

fits very nicely in our décor.

Plus, that chenille fabric should wear like iron.

Its tweedy gray color not only complements our décor —

it will not show any black pet hair!

We’re placing yet another vintage sorter of mine

on that blank wall behind the chair:

I can’t wait to fill its shelves + cubbies with all my books + ‘stuff’!

Fingers crossed we can move it today!

Stay tuned, of course,

but first, just one more look:

There’s my old easel, displaying my oil painting

of my sister, Kathy, + our late friend, Cindee.

I painted this back in my graduate school era (’78)

at Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville.

TY, as always, for viewing!
