12" across again. This would appear to be my last finished object for 2009. (I highly doubt I'll finish anything else in the next 49 minutes.)
Hee! The first camera I got as a kid! I took a photo of it for posterity, then tossed it. (It suffered a lot of abuse, and I seem to remember it was developing problems. Not a good candidate for donation.)
My caretaker had a stroke recently, and was told he has diabetes (or something), and to cut back on the sugar. That meant I couldn't bake him cookies for Christmas. (Not that I've had time to bake cookies.) I found some sugar-free chocolates at Scoop N Weigh that looked tasty, so I made a box for them, and gave him that for Christmas instead.
I passed on the warning that the owner's husband gave to me.
"Bad planning on your part does not make for an emergency on my part."I need to take that more to heart, so that all of my stuff doesn't end up "emergency" due to spending too much time on other people's stuff, stressing me the heck out. (Like when dad invited me for boxing day dinner, and I ended up cooking half of it, and sitting around while the chicken roasted... when I had thought I'd have the afternoon for getting my own stuff done.)
Many Victorian Art Nouveau and Edwardian pieces of silverplate will almost always show bleeding and sometimes need re-silvering. Re-silvering is frowned upon and is not always recommended by purists, especially when it comes to Georgian and Early Victorian silverplate. Re-silvering of really early pieces, Georgian to Mid-Victorian, can devalue pieces. Generally speaking, "re-silvering" is a personal matter of choice.I think the pattern on the tray looks kind of art nouveau or possibly art deco. I love the pattern on the tray. Isn't it pretty?

2009/11/28 International item has left CanadaThe "destination country" is the USA. Canada and the USA share a border. There is zero space between us. How, then, does it take three days to cross zero space? (It's probably time spent in customs, I know. But then why don't they call it that?)
