Week Five – Communication
Week Five – Communication. This “old” phone graces the wall of our bar. I think it’s interesting that even though we are living in the most technologically advanced moment in human history, we are still drawn to the charm of the past. I don’t think any of us would want to trade our internet and smart phones for Pennsylvania 6-5000 and Millie the Operator, but the aesthetic is very pleasing.
Day 358 – Nothing goes better with a rainy day than a good book.
Day 312 – After the first presidential debate, I thought this would be a good photo to post. This is brick tea. It is dried and pressed into bricks for transport. This was the form of tea that the colonists threw into Boston Harbor. The other side is pressed into squares that could be used for trading. For example, one square of brick tea could be traded for a chicken.
Day 240 – I love to drive. Isn’t just the most liberating feeling to hit the open road?
Day 160 – We went to the Classics and Chrome show today and got a chance to get close to this beauty. Built in Germany in 1939, this Maybach Special Roadster is one of only two ever made. Its top speed is 120 mph. The MM on the logo stands for “Maybach – Motorenbau”.
Getting My Clock Cleaned
Day 117 – Michael was kind enough to clean my clock today, literally – not figuratively. Good thing too since we have to “spring forward” tonight.
Day 113 – Pisanki is the Polish name for decorated Easter eggs. (Pisanka is singular). I have several colorful ones, but this is the only one I have that is carved.
Milk Glass Vase
Day 109 – I love Milk Glass. It was first developed in Venice in the 16th century. The term “milk glass” is relatively new. The white color is achieved by the addition of bone ash.
Day 108 – This drawing was found among my grandfather’s souvenirs and papers from WWII. He probably picked it up when he was in Hawaii or Japan.
Crazy Carnival Glass
Day 107 – I have this beautiful, delicate, purple carnival glass perfume holder that never gets enough use. So I decided to have a little fun in Lightroom with it.
