I mentioned in my first post about my collectible California pottery that I was missing one box. All the boxes on the movers inventory were accounted for, so I was confused as to how something inside one could go missing. I called the moving company to see if perhaps my box was inadvertently left on the truck after being freed from the crate; but no.
Under the stairs in our house, I’ve been storing the empty boxes for our electronics (it’s good to have the original packaging for the next move), boxes of holiday decor, our beach bag, and the vacuum cleaner. Last night I decided, at my daughter’s urging, to get out some Halloween decor. When moving what I thought was our old TV/VCR combo that had been in storage (since it was small and useful only for deployments) I realized that I had written something on the box. Ah ha!! It wasn’t the TV at all — it was the missing box of pottery!!!!!
I’m so happy to have found Grama’s cookie jar (not shown), and my Bauer Aladin teapot!
(Thinking my vintage one was gone, I had been contemplating buying a new one, but at $70, oy.)
In other happy news, I’m nearly done with the Racetrack and rocket Booster quilt — only one more side of binding to sew on.
And this should finally conclude the pottery postings.
