homeland security

homeland security

Taken at an antique toy auction. Competition kept us from buying anything here. Not sure why we continue to keep going to auctions. They are quite addictive though. We went to one over the holidays, and I purchased some turn of the century (twentieth century) clothing. Bought a velvet opera coat, and a man's bowler still in the box, among other things. Plus this very strange vest with fringes and metal decoration on the front. The plan is to get some interesting photos of these things, then get them on ebay. However, actually getting this done requires more effort then I can muster in the dead of a deary winter. You know the saying...The best laid plans, would benefit from natural sunlight. Or something like that.

this blog is my "live" photo album of sorts. occasionally, i'll throw in some art i've done or some work of my husband's as he's an artist as well. we have a nice yard in a quiet neighborhood with two pugs and a cat, all black. which most of my photos will attest too. ;) i'd love to hear from you, but happy for you to just browse. hope you find something to make you smile. b.
