I have been collecting since I was a child, with a brief interlude while I grew up. I decided that wasn't much fun, so have been searching, researching and restoring ever since. After 10 years of work, I have at last finished my book on the subject, but am still working on two houses, removing many layers of overpaint. And I am deeply fed up with it! But can't stop till they're finished. Wish I could use solvents, but can't because of chemical allergies, so have to stick to scalpels. I get through an awful lot of blades.
