Autumn in NH
Why does it seem so ... exciting?
ok, autumn in New York is a lot more exciting, but we are doing our best here up in the hills of NH to keep the autumn splendor going. We have all kinds of fairs and apple picking going on. We have last days at the beach or lakes to dabble our toes. We have gardens to turnover and mulch before the snow flies. Ack! Did I actually utter the s word already? OK, give me my promised trip back to Brooklyn. I need that beautiful table from Hasker on Smith to make it through this wretched winter. I am so completely off topic here, I am going to show you a photo from this morning of my front stoop. Is this a stoop? I always call it that.
Here is my prize "tag sale" find of the century from three years ago. I bought this Hungarian baby bath for $30. At the time, I thought it was steep, (but I loved the shape) until I saw it for sale at Garnet Hill for over $200. What? My German inlaws saw a photo of it and thought, why is she planting flowers in a baby bath? Well, I like it for 30, but that was my personal limit! Added bonus, mine is complete with an all rusted patina color for the legs. GH painted their legs up all slick in green or blue I think. Ick. (Give me rusty metal and a tetanus shot please.)
Anyway, way off topic. Here is a mini feast of some beautiful art and fine craft work we are living with at the gallery at the moment. Click images to enlarge or titles to go shop... and have a wonder-filled day..
