Hehe!

Well I am glad you are enjoying it Night Star!

I had a day of mixed blessings. It was slow in the shop, but I had plenty to be doing otherwise, and so that worked out well. I have just returned from my sisters place, where we played a board game for a bit, and shot the breeze, with extreme prejudice. It's the only way to shoot the breeze when my sister and I get going!

Now though, it is time for bed. I am about to keel over for the night, and so I bid you, and the rest of Shedsville a peaceful night, and the sweetest of dreams!

I LOVE the Pegasus AND it's sentimental value!

It's cool how you appear to be typing a post in the background also...

Someone very close to me died on Valentine's Day years ago and she had made, in school, a horse.

I kept it for years and gave it to her oldest Son when he left my house. He cried...

He never knew I had kept it for him. Maybe someday you will hand it down to someone you treasure?

They are quite lovely.

I don't imagine you remember but, I was thinking of going to NC to retrieve an older China Cabinet that was my Father's Mother's...well my Sister became "squirmy" and I've decided to let it go...

I posted a pic of it once, sort of, it was in the background of a family photo. I was showing the blue willow that my Mom had.

Anywho...I have the memories...

Just wanted to tell you what you already know...they are very nice pieces.

I do, it was in my Food Porn thread. Too bad she would not let you take it home, it was a nice piece.

Thank you. It is a small group of collectors for that style so we all tend to end up with some rather unusual pieces. I have a bunch of smalls that were in the Houston Fine Arts Museum that I am particularly found of, they loo great scattered around the library.

Absolutey gorgeous! Antique furniture costs a fortune. Most of mine are reproductions or were handed down to me or sold at a hell of a sale. The workmanship and quality of these items are amazing!


I tend to go for the higher quality pieces by known cabinet makers since they hold their value. The one with the striped upholstery is part of a pair which I practically stole at $195 for both.


Wow that was one hell of a deal

Yeah, the new upholstery cost more than that. I got it the same time I got my sole piece of Belter furniture which was a gift for the boss since she wanted a Rococo Settee. That was also a bargain compared to the actual value, the person had no idea what they were selling.

That was nice of You to keep that Horse, then give it to the Oldest Son! How NIce of You!
...

Yah I love that Pegasus. It is heavy as hell, and made in two parts. There is a heavy screw on the other side of it, that keeps it together. I could maybe someday, seperate it, and mount the two halves facing each other on a wall?! I think that would look pretty cool!! LOL!!
...

I am going to hand it down someday. To Whom, I am not sure yet...
My life is unbalanced at best currently, so...

Oh, almost forgot. YES I was posting in the background of that pic! It was to Kat about the Pegasus! I wanted a picture for that post, so took a couple, and chose one and dropped into the post!! Good eye Bird!! LOL!!
Syx...

Bird, sorry you didn't get the china cabinet. It would have been an awesome heirloom.

Syx, you have talent in your writing and imagination. That is quite a gift to have.

Goodnight True and the sweetest dreams to you.

Mason, between your Victorian home and awesome antiques, you must be rich. I think you should adopt me, or let me adopt you. You know, then we'd be family and I could move into that dreamy house and enjoy your exquisite furniture and stuff. Do we have a pool in the yard?

Thank you!
I was adopted and it was always awkward between us...she being considerably older than I...

I just hope that it finds a good home. Be it hers or someone else's...

We do okay. If I adopt you (or vice versa) you gonna help with the house cleaning?

Sorry, no pool, but we do have a hot tub.

How can you tell an actual antique from a reproduction? I used to know a little about antiques, but there are so many areas to cover.

Well, since we are on the subject of adoption now there are still extra bedrooms at the inn even after NightStar moves in.

It's okay about the cabinet, truly...
I've got my memories...LOL

YOUR Anniversary thread is EPIC...one for the record books!

I hope you know (if you didn't already) how many people truly cherish you and your soul...

YOU are one of a kind lady! One of a kind!

With the ones I collect it is fairly obvious in the craftsmanship but a dead give away is if you turn it over and see phillips head screws or nails holding the furniture together. Actual antiques from the 1800's used only flathead screws and glue.

I am disabled but I do clean my own home, so I would pitch in at yours. Can I bring my cat and turtle and fish?
