VINTAGE WEDDING COUPLE
Anyone who knows me knows that I can’t resist stopping in for a peek anytime, anywhere, there is vintage or antiques to root through. My kids roll their eyes each time I pull up with my car filled with new one of a kind finds. I took Jess with me this weekend to look over all the things I had pulled at a funky vintage sale and I asked her if I was crazy? “Crazy?!” she exclaimed. “Crazy awesome! You are like a huntress, always on the prowl, ready to pounce each time a unique piece catches your eye.” She then helped me eliminate two items that we didn’t HAVE to have. I love the way this vintage wedding couple looks against one of our antique Suzanis.
INDIAN CHIEF BRASS ON MARBLE CANDLESTICKS
I have developed a huge appreciation for brass the last couple of years. It can go with any color as it’s not as luminous as silver or gold. And don’t get me started on marble, I’ve yet to turn down a piece made with that mighty stone. These chiefs are so regal and I loved their larger than life appearance as they are much taller than most candlesticks you see these days.
VINTAGE ASIAN WEDDING COUPLE
Be still my heart, another vintage pair! I am drawn to so many things about these figures. Maybe it is their serene pose, or the fact that they are adorned with vintage rhinestone jewelry. The rings on their fingers just send me. This is the beginning of a new journey that I will chronicle as we are constantly acquiring new curiosities each week. For now, I’m back on the hunt. Hear my roar…
