Three panels of memories

19 04 2010

ONE OF my favorite home accents – I caution to call this one “furniture” – is my seven-year-old Aaron Brothers two-tone, solid wood, three-panel floorscreen.  It traveled 11,257 kilometers to get home with me.  And through the years, its fifteen 8”x10” frames have helped chronicle my innermost thoughts.

My Aaron Brothers two-tone, solid wood, three-panel floorscreen.

It’s very heavy, being solid wood.  That’s why it’s quite a challenge to move around.  The three panels are joined by two-way hinges for ease and versatility in positioning.  And as I’ve seen, it stands quite stably – barring earthquakes of cataclysmic proportions.  Having said that, I found that piles of magazines at its feet serve a whole lot of a different purpose.

This is how it looks like today.  It contains memories from as far back as 60 years, to something I made with my hands just last night.

Three superheroes – Superman, Batman, and Spider-man. I couldn't find a better Superman poster. All I have are almost life-size... yet to be framed for the walls!

 

I love the ad on the left! I wonder what "eNTeNG" would look like as a shoe. The one on the right says, "Finally, makikilala mo na si Louis!" This was the wrapper of one of Batman's Christmas presents. Louis is a character in the classic movie, "Casablanca."

 

Piles of magazines provide additional support at the base. On a carpeted floor, I would just let the six legs of the floorscreen get stamped onto the surface. They seem to get stable that way.

 

I position the hinges such that the two end panels are parallel to each other.

 

View from the top!

 

The Andy Warhol-ish print was a gift from Erwin. The red Kenneth Cole ad beside it was put there because, as Brother would always joke, it was with Kenneth Cole that I made my biggest savings deposits. Hahaha!

…napansin ko lang, bakit nauna si superman kay batman at spiderman? di ba kapag “in alphabetical order”, nauuna ang “B” at ang “P” sa “U”? Peace! 😛
