Oh you know... that moment when you sit down with your new #fleamarketsyle magazine ready to pour over your pal @megillicutti 's 2 features (1 writing, 1 shopping - congrats to her!!!) and you turn the page to find your own gallery wall featured in an article!! My daughter spotted a pic of herself and hollered "I'm in a magazine"... it's a shadowy silhouette, but still... fun stuff! #gallerywall#myeclecticmix#antiques#foundstyle#howihome#antiquepaintings

While I am loving the warm summer weather, this painting makes me dream of bird hunting. I love this massive Edmund Osthaus painting of two pointers and a setter. If you look closely in the bushes there are little hints of quail. Swipe to see detail.
One never knows what treasures await when sloshing hot coffee into a porcelain travel mug and buckling into the driver’s seat for a day of exploration. Today, I visited a dear and venerable staple-of-horse-country dealer-friend, who delighted in dazzling me with an impromptu private showing of this visual treat, recently and quietly uncovered from a reclusive eccentric’s private collection (imagine that!), viewed mid-day over grilled cheese sandwiches in the cool and mostly darkened back of gallery with long and lazy rays of sun pouring, still and silent, through the shopfront windows in gracious golden blades as time magically and briefly stopped... and outside, temperatures swelled above 101 degrees F by 9:00 this morning and relentlessly blazed upward through the day with excruciating fury!
A lovely living room, filled with colorful paintings, furniture and accessories from the 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. The vibrant painting over the comfortable sofa is a good focus for this room, the antique oriental rug on the floor adds both color and warmth. The narrow table behind the sofa is the perfect place to display a nice collection very early porcelain and pottery, and the needlepoint pillows on the sofa add a homey touch and additional color to this living area. .
An added bonus is the built-in bookshelf on the side wall next to the sofa. The unusually shaped and beautifully carved coffee table makes a good place to put books, large antique turquoise prayer beads, a fine 18th century Asian porcelain bowl, fresh flowers and additional accessories. This is very interesting and comfortable looking room. Proof that you can have and enjoy and display your antiques and still have a room that is informal looking and very comfortable.
