The storage of these ornaments was in a tall glass jar with a lid. Somehow, through the vibration of furniture as people walk by and gravity. the jar fell off the top of the table. The jar did not break but I did loose about 5 of the ornaments. These survivors are packed in a box now for safety reasons. Some of the ornaments are in bad condition and a select few are shiny brites. I have a few more of these in antique canning jars packed in boxes now.
We also have bought a newer home in Ankeny, Iowa and we are moving away from this old 110 year old house. Neither of us have ever lived in a new house and this one is only 13 years old. I can and will share more later, but we have a couple of months before closing. We have spent the week boxing books and wrapping up art works. We have only two paintings left hanging in the gallery now and I need to get a step ladder to bring them down.
As we work through these next few months we will be making a lot of changes in our lives. We will live in a quieter suburbia location and will adapt and create a new living place. The house and location is a very positive change for us. We are moving to a city though, that is growing by leaps and bounds. It is the third fastest growing city in the nation right now. I will have an Ace Hardware about mile away from where we live. Life will be good.
Thank you for stopping by today. I wish all will have a good day today. Everyone please stay safe.
