Yesterday was another Wednesday of digging through the clutter of the MIL’s house. At least this time, by the end of the day, it looked as though we’d made a little headway. We removed the legs from the desk, taped the folding top down, removed the drawers, and loaded it into the van.
Once we got the desk out of the room, we turned the huge and very heavy radio/record player and placed it where the desk was. The bedroom looked roomy.
We hauled out several bags of garbage. Again. Then we loaded some smaller boxes and crates into the back seats. We were out of there by five for a change. However, we were still exhausted on the drive home.
I did remember to bring one of the plates from the other set of antique dishes home. I looked up the set online. It is Homer Laughlin/ Virginia Rose/ Colonial Kitchen. This set takes up two large lard cans. All the antique dishes are for sale.
