I've finished the grand dame of the chandeliers-- she's huge, a tangle of branches that drip down, and adorned with snippets of netting Kate's salvaged from old hats, silk flowers, jute rope, and boxwood-esque wire. We'll install her this week, but I'm posting a preview. I think she's lonely in the studio. My house painter, Robert, likes her a lot. This picture doesn't capture her grandeur, but I'll post again once she's been hung.

I wanted to post some neat new things.
And doesn't your mama need a 1920's ruched silk robe for Mother's day? At $45.00 it's a total steal. It's as spotless and as soft as you were when you were her little baby.

The chandelier pictured last week sold Saturday, so I brought in a new one today. This one is silver, with frosty silvered pine cones, a little nest hidden in its center, and dripping with moss.
Lots of little things are walking out the door, little things I'm sorry I didn't capture on film, like a collection of vintage pennants of Virginia landmarks and the happiest little red round cream pot.
Do drop in!
