I bought these little IKEA cups and saucers last spring.
Today I opened the package and used them for the first time.
Dark brown, matte finish, tiny saucers.
Two letters were in the mailbox: one from my sister Anne and one from my father.
They both had housewarming wishes.
I bought an A, B, C fire extinguisher for the hallway: safety first.
Check out the old, brown vent register and the new one.
The new one is cast metal: heavy brass or something. Quite nice. Expensive.
