What was lost has now been found. Discovered after cleaning and sorting my studio:
A bucket of crystal chandelier drops. I don't have a chandelier. I have never had a chandelier.
A bag of old, tarnished Christmas ornaments. I have boxes of them. Why aren't these with the rest?
My collection of beverage coasters from around the world. Don't ask.
Vintage bottle caps. Mr. Catnip urged me to keep them, as I recall. This was a noteable event in our marriage.
Old, original chippy paint fake candle electric wall lamp. I just had to have it. So I could stick it in a box and forget about it.
Gorgeous old ceramic lamp base. The rest of the lamp is unremarkable. Again, I just had to have it. So I could stick it in a box and...you know the rest.
At the bottom of the "had to have it" box, just what I needed - more chandelier drops.
