Victoria Alexander: Okay, you wanted more so...
Recently, Lucia talked about my passion for old typewriters which led us to talk about exactly what is in my basement. It's a scary, scary place. I'm a collector of, well, stuff. Whatever catches my fancy at the moment or, more usually, whatever falls into my lap. And it's all stored in the museum--er--the basement.

First, of course, there are the antique typewriters.

These things weight a ton and will some day be displayed upstairs.


I don't seem to be able to throw away a lamp.

So now it's a collection.

Old, new, hanging, whatever.

(I really do intend to use the chandeliers outside with candles someday.)

Then there is the collection of dollhouses. More on that next time...Happy Easter!
