Let's see, I attended an auction today. I bought a bunch of great junk. My favorite piece is Red Wing Saffron Ware mixing bowl. (I may just turn this into a template, because it seems to be the introduction to many of my posts). This mixing bowl is pretty nice because it is marked, it is huge (12 inches in diameter), it is crazed and it is wonderfully stained. (And that may become a template to describe your correspondent).
I added this picture so I could show off one of my personally designed newel posts. It has four stained glass panels and is lit by a photo cell switch so it serves as a night light.
I’m a guy who has somehow fallen into the shabby world. A shabby chic world of shabotaged furniture and foo foo accessories. My stuff tends to be outside of the cottage without much chic, shabby or otherwise. My things are the hogs in this world of roses. Thus the title: Hogs and Roses. (Please look at my 1st post "Why Hogs and Roses?")
I want to be Henny Youngman, when I grow up. Take my wife -- please!
I enjoyed 7 years of marital bliss (17 years of marriage). I have been divorced forever. Love my role as curmudgeon, comedian, sage and advisor.
