~ the goods

FeedBurner is delivering emails up to 2 days after I publish a post which is more than a little frustrating since I work to get the posts out in a timely manner. I apologize for the inconvenience and hope you will scroll back to catch up on the big weekend at the Lauritzen Gardens Antique & Garden Show if you missed it. It was good. Really good. Here's what I brought home...


From Zane Moss, this handsome brass door stop... I love it on my kitchen counter!

I thought I would add this to my box collection, but I liked it better by itself in the family room... so charming! From a new Kansas City dealer, Parrin & Co.

From Sebasky & Hildreth, this wonderful altar stick... 



From Trace Mayer, this Dutch fruitwood and ebonized jardinaire... I love it with the old cricket balls! An interesting addition to my living room... There's another if you're interested...


Another Zane Moss purchase... I do not need another box. This is the last box I'm buying. Ever. Seriously. This one might be my favorite... I love the mother of pearl...


These Creil plates are from Sebasky & Hildreth. I am in love with this gorgeous yellow color and the black chinoiserie decoration... in my office.



From Solomon Suchard Antiques, this adorable french faience pottery... Her buckets are filled with salt and pepper... when you need a pinch.


This lovely mirror is from Nufangle... I made several purchases from this new dealer... 

Also from Nufangle, these checkerboards for the boys bathrooms.


I think these chargers from Anthony Scornavacco will make the biggest impact out of everything I bought. I'm hanging them in my dining room on a wall that is seen at the front door. They will be stunning! I'm so excited to see them hung!

Also from Anthony Scornavacco, I scored this spectacular Venetian mirror... one of a pair. Here's a sneak peek... more later.


I also brought home a lovely set of intaglios from Nufangle. They were framed in new, black and bulky frames which didn't work with my plan for the space. I took them in to be reframed and they should be finished in a week... looking forward to that!


I just love the Lauritzen Gardens Antique Show! The speakers were sensational, the dealers outstanding, and there's nonstop entertainment all weekend! A smashing success in every way!

It looks like you purchased some wonderful things but why are you torturing me? Show the Venetian mirrors please!

You did well - love your additions to your collections!

You made some fabulous choices. My favorites are the papier mache/mother-of-pearl box and the quimper salt and pepper girl. Although, with the small peek you gave of the Venetian glass mirror, I may have another favorite when you show us the whole thing.

Have a great day...Victoria

lovely, lovely, lovely!

Jan, your header inspired me to change mine for a more seasonal theme and to reflect the content on the blog but I cannot get the Blogger software to do what I want, will have to look further so will keep working on it. Your blog is just beautiful!
