It’s time to ‘clean out the attic’ as some locals part with their
possessions and others find treasures. The joy of course, is in
discovery, browsing with ‘no expectation at all’ and ending up

once more… thus changing hands and becoming part of a new
decor as spring heralds change and the cobwebs are swept away.

inked, and then rolled to mark their impression on fabric (which was
then possibly embroidered?)

in Australia, I am now happy to be able to replace the sets, slowly adding
‘little finds’from the same era.
