Fall back and forge ahead

 So far 2020 has been a bitch and with everything we have had to endure I was so hoping that the time change would be dumped and nature would be allowed to reign.  Nope, that wouldn't fit the 2020 narrative so here we are with the clocks turned back an hour again and natures biorhythms thrown out of whack.  Still, we forge ahead and November begins the big holiday season for those whose celebrate Diwali, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah and Christmas and I think everyone is looking forward to a new year.

Busy at home, busy at work and in between I have found a few  items for my space in the Lyon's Head Antique Mall.

Charming little cotton floss embroidery of an owl in frame.  Sweet little thing and so 1970s when owls were king.

Antique cranberry rake in in marvelous condition and already decorated for fall.

Everyone loves a nativity scene for Christmas and this one may not have a lot of pieces but it is lovely.

Great antique book for boys called The World Adventure.

A gorgeous, vintage, Rodney Kent, hand wrought aluminum tray with hand engraved tulips. Decorative handles circa 1950s.  This is a really nice sized tray and would look marvelous on a kitchen wall.

Selection of saltwater rods from the 1950s.  

Lovely watercolor painting, signed and dated 1939.

Charming bisque cathedral with stained glass windows that light up.

And now, the queen of finds this week.  When England swings like a pendulum do and Carnaby Street was the place to be seen.  A great, abstract London Bridge skyline painting produced in the style of the Vangaard Studios in the late 1960s.  This is a big, sofa width size depiction of the well known London Bridge is done in true vintage form with the brutalist drips so popular in the late 1950s through the 1960s.  Original frame.

Just a short video of my space as I just refilled it this weekend.  November begins the busiest time for us and I've got lots of items to bring in for all of the upcoming holidays.  Wishing everyone a gentle November and blessings to you and those you love. Sea Witch
