I am leaving for Texas in just a few days, and again I cannot believe that it has been 6 short months since I was last there. I just love the vibe of Texas, the people, the food, the weather....you name it. I will be again blogging about all the amazing finds and treasure I uncover at the flea markets.
(I love this little clock. I bought it years and years ago at an auction in Chicago....and the enamel planet with stars that the putti is holding, is actually a clock, so on a desk anyone advancing would see the sculpture while the owner could tell the time.)
oh, a peacock......how did he get there?? a sterling silver bird I found recently at a second hand store......30 bucks....love him !
This is sort of Egyptian revival....that was a huge rage years back, when the "obelisk" was given to Paris. It still stands there today...Napoleon was instrumental in finding the Rosetta stone too....Imagine, if he didn't...they probably would still be trying to figure out hieroglyphics....(I am sure I have butchered that spelling)
I will have some Killer pics next week I am sure....wish me luck, and the timing to find what I am looking for....of course I don't know what that is until I see it..
