Firstly, I never intended anyone to think I was going away, by the title of my last post and will choose my words more carefully in the future.
Secondly, forget what I said in my last post altogether. I intend to list some of the pieces I had pictured, some I hadn't, throw some out the window, send some north to Alaska....and get those clock cases spiffy and put them on too, as I said I would. Most of our country is probably travelling for the holiday so it doesn't even matter, I am talking to walls, right? I shouldn't bother listing anything until next week anyway, but never mind. It's my job. I may be a fickle tweakaholic but I am not a fickle tweakaholic shirker. I am on the case now. I love these things and have enjoyed having/making them, but I want to see the top of my table again, someday. Ruminating on room, and the dizzying circles the vast amount of stuff has me running in. (what?)
I've had this gorgeous Czech dress clip for as long as I can remember which some days lately could be nanoseconds, getting listed pronto.
So are these large 1930's "Pools of Light" crystal beads. They've been center drilled so they're not quite as desirable as the ones not, but still lovely. When you hold them down over paper, and the images reflect backwards to you, they're the thing. I have a little stash of these from a necklace I didn't feel like fixing....they're outta here....
These are pretty fun, original half-penny coins from 1965, with chalcedony....I put these together today and am calling them "Old Money".....off they go.
This aquamarine and chippy Haskellish pearl necklace was the recipient of some fiddly tweaking today and it's finally ready to debut. After I photograph it yet again. The cameo is a wonderful Venetian scene and the aquamarines suit it quite nicely. Vamanos!
The wall charms are going back into the box for a total tweakover, another day. But this one, my favorite this moment....
is getting listed too...scrumptious verdigris, warm humming colors and the stones, glass and metal meld so well.....It's gotta go. (to a really great home I hope) SOLD!!! to a very good home....
If I hold to this plan of mine, I might see my table by 2015.
Oh! I want to wish whoever stumbles upon this diatribe, do have a wonderful, relaxing, fun filled and safe holiday.
