    The basement of my 90-yr old apartment building was cleaned out awhile back and I found some old photos in the trash. Yes, I rescued them all - so they are back where they belong. Anyway. I LOVE this picture. Isn't she gorgeous?

    The other pic shows some details of the space - hey how did that bird get into the basement?

      Thank you ho2cultcha and lee for your love.

      Where did the (plaster?) molding come from?
    3. valentino97 valentino97, 6 years ago
      It fell off from our bldg. façade and was one of many down there. I'm not sure why they saved these because there have been many repairs since this photo. I have a feeling they all "disappeared" during the basement clean up along w/the gorgeous redwood doors stored down there. The original Arts and Crafts grandfather clock almost disappeared too but a few of us made loud comments so the grubby landlords could not take it.
    4. valentino97 valentino97, 6 years ago
      Sorry here's some more ino: my bldg. went condo recently lots of old stuff in our very large basement "locked rooms" disappeared overnight. I bitched loud and hard that the clock should come back to the lobby where it belonged - Where it was shown in the original sales brochure in 1926!
    5. valentino97 valentino97, 6 years ago
      And it is in the lobby and it keeps perfect time.

      Wow!Workers trying to make off with some goodies?I know a lot of good stuff everywhere goes in the dumpster every day,sad,I once watched our neighbors(after they had passed)children throw everything the had in a 2 story house,into a dumpster.
    7. valentino97 valentino97, 6 years ago
      Actually...not the workers - it was the owners here at our 80 unit 90-yr-old apt. bldg. And only a few owners. My landlord did not get one little item. It was very strange that the day Goodwill truck was scheduled to pick up all the "stuff" in the basement the electricity was turned off so anyone interested - like ME - could not pick thru the boxes. Yes, I managed to get some things but it wasn't easy.

      Dumpsters? A different story isn't it. We can jump in - and I have. Yes it is sad that the children don't care.

      The "Hopeless Romantic" in me is led astray completely by this photograph! Peaches & creeam valentino97! =)
    16. valentino97 valentino97, 6 years ago
      Me too - a hopeless romantic! Since it's October I will say - thank you w/love and peaches, whipped cream and pumpkin pie... It's my birthday month. Easier to find the pie than fresh peaches.

      The woman is gorgeous! Your bird is your little friend, so cute!
    18. valentino97 valentino97, 5 years ago
      Thank you Jewels for looking at this and your comment. I love this photograph! And - I think this is the last time I brought Theo out of my apt....he rules the roost inside but looks really scared down in the basement doesn't he?

      Thank you to all CW friends who enjoyed this post - "yours truly" -Val

      Theo was so handsome, as a male bird could he talk? You have certainly owned some beautiful birds Mary, much joy ahead with Louie :)
    21. valentino97 valentino97, 1 month ago
      Jenni thanks! The very first was Valentino. She was so unique and Louie is too....only cost $100 more LOL. Theo didn't talk, and none of my parakeets over the years talked. Maybe because they were always with a friend. Louie is trying to talk, he has his own bird language that I recognize if he's happy or tired or irritated.

      Thanks friends for your loves!

      Thank you Bill for checking this old post. I LOVE wandering and exploring old places. :-) When I visit family we like to do little road trips on back roads. Hope to see you in 2020!
