A GARDEN AND A LIBRARY


"IF YOU HAVE A GARDEN AND A LIBRARY, YOU HAVE EVERYTHING YOU NEED "

OH HOW I LOVE THEE

Of all my impassioned desires , old vintage books are on the very top of my list whenever I frequent church/yard/estate sales.
Last week i posted this little crystal book I created in a water/salt solution. With the sun in hiding all of this week I haven't had the opportunity to take some good shots of the book in all of it's glittery splendour, hopefully this weekend might be more co-operative. 

**********
It's been a very busy week and unfortunately didn't have much time for painting and working on my mixed media. 
With the coming of Spring it usually intoxicates me with flowers and antiques and no matter the weather I am out and about hunting down treasures of old…heirloom varieties for both garden and art.

During the course of my travels over the last weekend I met a fella at a yard sale who informed me of an Estate sale that was on in Oxford Station. It was a three day sale and I only got wind of it that Saturday afternoon but feeling tried I decided to go later the following day on Sunday; to my surprise everything that was left in the household contents was half price and a gorgeous double iron pedestal Victorian garden table still remained. Since I really didn't have the room for it , I passed the deal unto my friend.
Anyway, I did get my fair share of treasures , including today at another Estate sale run by the same company "MaryFrancis Estates ". Thanks to Jim from "The Cottage", I think I have a great venue to hunt for the old relics, after all , I am working on making a garden and a library.

Annabelle, where are you? I love your crystallized book. Hope you are back with your creations this Fall. A lot of artists took some time off, including myself.
