My new baby – a library card catalog
I am such a happy duck.
I have a new library card catalog. I have wanted one forever. Now I have one. It’s mine. I love it so so much.
I drove 4.5 hours-ish one-way to pick it up. In total, I drove about 10 hours that day (I had a meeting in the morning). I think that’s the most I’ve ever driven alone in one day. I don’t ever ever want to do that again.
Unless it’s for another card catalog, in which case where are the keys to my van?
- She originally got it from an antique shop.
- It’s handmade. Each of the 60 drawers is numbered on the back because they only fit their designated spaces.
- The history of the piece includes some work on it that was performed by someone who had hoped to have some kind of relationship with Maureen. Didn’t happen. Sorry guy.
Unfortunately, the piece won’t fit in my studio, but it really looks at home in the spot where it now lives. That is, it looks so at home in my home.
My husband has started planning on what he’ll store in those drawers. I can already tell that this is going be a problem. I have to start training myself now to SHARE. I can’t possibly fill 60 drawers by myself.
That’s a lie. Yes I can.
