Treasure Trove :: Trésors cachés

Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.
— Eleanor Roosevelt

I have a treasure trove in my house and there are hundreds, maybe thousands of small-sized objects, medium objects and large objects. All of these objects have names that are very obscure to me and their usefulness is even more foreign. However, I have to say that some of them are very pretty indeed with bright red colours and shiny metals. These objects reside in Guy’s Workshop.

J’ai un trésor dans ma maison et il y a des centaines, voir des milliers d’objets de petite taille, des objets de taille moyenne et de bien gros objets. Tous ces objets ont des noms qui sont très obscurs pour moi et leur utilité est encore plus étrangère. Cependant, je dois dire que certains d’entre eux sont très jolis avec leurs couleurs rouge vif et métaux brillants. Ces objets résident dans l’atelier à Guy.

    I get excited when I receive an email to visit your site for a new watercolor. These are very interesting, and as usual, have great color. Unlike you, I am very familiar with tools. I am the handyman in this house, and I love tools. There are few homeowner tools I don’t have, and I use them all often. So much so that when the contractor came to install a new window (through a brick wall), he needed something (a steel brush, I think) and saw my tool room. He said he’d never seen so many tools in a “home.” He doesn’t know I sold many before moving here, but kept enough to renovate this old house.

    Those are two adjustable wrenches, one for plumbing and the other for smaller jobs. The other is probably a clamp, but the mechanics are not precise enough in your sketch to tell. This makes me want to go fix something.

      This is so nice Patsye — good for you that you can use them as I find this whole world very intriguing indeed. I had once decided to surprise my husband with a good resetting and cleaning of his workshop! He almost had a heart attack and he told me that his workshop was off limits… He still talks about it. It took him 6 months to find what he wanted… -)) I gladly obliged him.
