I remembered to pick up some Brasso the other day and have begun to clean a few brass items. I'm starting small and will build up to the bigger objects. The tiny brass bird and dog are gleaming in their new locations. You know by now that I'm forever shifting things around. The bookstore scene picture came out of closet storage. I've had it since the 70's. My friend Carla has the companion Blum print of an antique store scene. If I have a free afternoon, I usually end up in a bookstore or antique shop. My kind of happy hour(s)!
