What a windfall, an honor and a gift to behold as well as work within the confines of this elderly home, the surrounding land, the sheds, garage, basement and attic, not to mention the amazing collection that has unfolded before our eyes.

I jumped up and down in excitement with what I saw had happened in just three full days of prep. From segment to segment, room to room, floor to floor it was like the biggest treasure trove I have ever seen, not to mention the most eclectic bunch of stuff I could every imagine.
