Well the mice thought so too. A mouse/mice have been in the back of the drawers of the plan chest and have shredded a lot of paper! How do they get in there? It's a pretty solid piece of furniture nearly a metre deep.
So far I have cleared out two of the six drawers - I have not yet counted the number of sketchbooks and notebooks I have found (there are more in other drawers) but I also found a few things I had almost forgotten, like this beautiful little poster for a Ben Nicholsom exhibition.
And this joyful flower painting which I always intended for my daughter whose flowers they were. It reminds me of a very happy series I did. All sold except this one which I knew I had kept for her but didn't know quite where.
I am so glad the mice didn't get them. I will have them both framed asap.
I wonder what else I will find?
Have you had this experience when doing some clearing out?
