The Cross House
Yesterday, I did a post about collecting all the un-attached hardware in the Cross House.
This afternoon, I went all through the house trying to ascertain where all the un-attached bits went.
I had a lot of fun. There were a lot of SQUEE moments!
There were some perplexing moments, too.
And there was a troubling, traumatic, and overwhelming discovery.
The two alien pulls however proved only a mild curiosity.
For, and needless to say, I AM COMPLETELY FREAKED OUT THAT I AM MISSING TWENTY-ONE PULLS!
I am freaked out, man!
And all of a sudden the house felt irretrievably brutalized. Irretrievably brutalized!!!!!!!! Which begs the question: Should I just, at last, give up and demolish the house? I mean, without ALL the original window pulls being in situ, how could I ever expect to be happy? How could the house ever be right?
Yes, all the stained-glass is very pretty, and all the mantels and trim and porch columns and stuff but, with twenty-one Yale & Towne Austerlitz sash pulls gone missing, what is the point?
Oh…oh…I need a fainting couch.
