Wednesday- Nov 17- A Look Ahead to the Weekend...

A favorite of mine, in terms of finding great buttons, vintage jewelry and clothing, is an event called
Vintage Clothing, Jewelry, Accessories and Textiles Show @ Danbury PAL Building located
at 25 Hayestown Road in Danbury,CT. It's hours: Friday night, 11/19, from 5PM-8PM, Saturday and Sunday, 11/20 and 11/21, from 10 AM-5PM with $6 Admission charge.

I have always looked forward to this event for lots of goodies and finds at good prices before the dealers get their hands on things and mark them up. The show is repeated in the Spring/Summer so I can rebuild my inventory in fabulous baubles and art when I find it dwindles down. If you are an avid follower and collector of antique jewelry and artifacts, this is a small show but with very selective wares packed into an easy venue. It is definitely worth the trip. Ask them for their best price and I bet you get it.
See you there!

Follow up on Mailbox pictures- Thursday- Veteran's Day

Hi everyone!
I did, indeed, take pictures of the new mailbox at the end of my driveway as promised.
Kathy came over today and secured all the pieces after that nasty weather from last week. Some of the flowers, birds and leaves can get "squooshy". She treats the creation like her "child" and I know will watch over it like a Mother Hen to make sure it stays as beautiful as it is right now. I really appreciate the attention.

Please enjoy the pictures above for the final result of all our labors.

Thank you, Susan @ T-Party for your today's post-Nov 10

Please visit for a post about my new mailbox installation. The comments are lovely and the pictures divine. I am so pleased when the neighborhood appreciates my nod towards the special environment in which we live. I am needing to keep the new birdbox maintained throughout this weather and the upcoming winter. It will be a challenge but vigilance is the key.
Art for the eyes and soul is always a good thing. Please feel free to contact me if you can think of ways I could can help you realize your art visions for home projects!

Happy hunting!

Don't miss - THE PIER ANTIQUES SHOW!- 11/13-14- Pier 94, NYC

The biggest event in the Fall in NYC is the Pier show where 500+ dealers sell 17th-20th C. Art, Furniture, Jewelry and Objects plus Fashion Alley. Look on for more info. DO NOT MISS IT!
Their motto= Be Green-Buy Vintage! Antiques:Luxury Recycling. I believe in that 2. I have always found fabulous and unique "objets" for my clients and my own private cache. Visit my friend Jamie Shenkman and Marcia @ Cherished Treasures for the best vintage jewelry finds at great 2010 pricing. Use my name if it will help! Ask to see the Judith Leiber, from Marcia and my own personal fav, Miriam Haskell, items from both booths. There are collectibles galore- handbags and accessories- which finish the little black dress with your own "panache'. Go for it!
