This was the estate sale of a former artist. I loved looking at her work and overheard her nephew telling someone that she had won many awards and taught. He was not the one putting on the sale, just dropping by, and he said he had probably spent 20 Christmases in this house.
Tools of the artist's trade. These are china paints.
And wow, what treasures she once had.
Gorgeous antique brass bed. Reminds me of that Dylan song, which I heard today, actually.
