You can see some of my treasured possessions acquired during the "first" ten years: the Akhmim-woven bedspread; the carpets and kilims (I have too many to put them all down at once, so I rotate them!); and photos and drawings. The lamp on the nightstand is an original University of Chicago one (this belongs to the house, but I lust after it!). And that pile of ironed and folded laundry was just brought back by one of the housemen. Yes, my laundry is done for me!
But I have my priorities! The Autumn door decor had to go up right away!
