THE FIRST .....WHO KNEW THERE WOULD BE SO MANY.....
Erica suggested I undertake a tremendous project. She is so clever at ideas. She has challenged me to post my "design" development over the past 51 years.
Here is #1 !!!
This was our first apartment at 214 Clay Street, Blacksburg, Virginia. We shared the first floor of a gorgeous Victorian home with the owner, Mrs. Kemp. She had the second floor converted into two additional apartments. Entering the foyer you could enter our apartment straight ahead through a regular wood door or go to the left through French Doors that entered her apartment. There was a small table with a telephone. The two apartments upstairs, and ours, shared this phone. The apartment was furnished, so I really didn't have the ability to design! I did clean though. I remember I washed the wood floors every morning.....I hope I didn't ruin them!!! These pictures do show some signs of a design future in the accessory arrangements!
