I have quite a few ceramic poodles, these are just a few of them that have escaped from the dining room where I work, into the living room along with Matte's wooden ducks and ceramic hands.
We took a trip to Seattle last weekend and found two really great old oil paintings at Antiques at Pike Place, possibly the best antique store we've ever been to. This one is called Card Sharks and signed Carpenter, date unknown. This is also part of my Eva Zeisel collection, schmoos and bird salt and pepper shakers and the clock is part of Matte's Howard Miller collection.
This was the real prize that day, a 1955 painting of a boy with a puppet, this was just way too wonderful and odd to leave behind!
I am a huge fan of movies, a day doesn't go by without me watching at least one, this was a birthday gift from Matte several years ago, Jeanne Moreau is one of my favorite actresses, though she most often plays someone completely wicked!
I hope I'm not boring you yet, I'm still drinking my morning coffee, I have a bit of a caffeine habit...
This is probably my weirdest collection, odd dolls, people either love them or they give them the creeps. On that note, I had fun sharing a few corners of our home with you, have a wonderful weekend!
