After 35 hours in purgatory, our power finally came back at 1:23 PM on Saturday. We came through the crisis in one piece and our relationship stronger than ever. We haven’t checked with all of our neighbors yet but believe they survived. Our house beeps a lot when re-energized. All those clocks to reset. Why does the toaster oven need a clock? For efficiency’s sake, I went ahead and set them for Daylight Savings Time twelve hours early.
Enough about us. On Thursday I went to my local hardwood store to look around and meet a friend for lunch. Just down from the hardwood store is an antiques shop that always has a nice selection of primitive and mid-level antiques. That day was no exception. There were many things worthy of note and I will note some of them here. The first thing I will note is a followup of a discussion from a few weeks back concerning mounting hardware. Orion Henderson of Horton Brasses educated us to the proper method of mounting a pull by recessing the nut and cutting the screw flush as is not done in this piece:
Another notable piece is this armoire. It knocks down.
And the thinnest pins ever.
