I'm Still Here......

 I Don't know where the time went......over a month flew by.
One highlight was,
 I was invited to go to the Atwood mansion estate sale.
My friend and I both went with the intention that we wouldn't 
find anything in our price range but it would be fun just to look 
at everything.......Her decorating was definitely inspired by her travels.
The original oil paintings started at $50,000......but this sweet poster
was hanging down on the garage wall and when I asked about
he looked at me and said you can have it if you want it.....
I love the little birds nest in his hat!
 Heres a picture of one of the formal rooms....there 
were some lovely pieces but I preferred the downstairs
late 60's- 70's style.....
 My purchase was these three decanters for $10 each
I loved them, the Bourbon was full and silly me went and dumped it down the drain
the Bourbon was worth more than the bottle I'm sure, oh well!

 This brooch I'm still dreaming about...he was only $2,900
He had 13 diamonds, sapphire eyes
so beautiful! 
One of the other funky pieces was this.....
it was huge and at $850 a little over my range also
just slightly.....

I can't wait to see what you have all been busy with
I missed you guys.....
and thank you again for all your lovely comments!
