I was very proud to present the exquisite works of the very talented artist and creator of Interi, Jean Barlow at last Fall's Marburger Antique Show in Round Top, Texas. 

Once again, Jean's highly sought after and collected fragments will travel to Texas for the Spring Show. 

From the Interi blog:  interionline.blogspot.com

"Fragment creations are 16 - 18th century fragments usually church fragmented objects that have fallen into disuse.  Antique artifacts that have been taken away from their original context and changed in their significance.  Carved articles of worship decorated with precious gems of tourmaline, aqua marine, rutilated quartz still in their matrix form and shells.  The combination of fossil shells, polished agate, coral, minerals and precious gems, usually in their matrix form brings into existence a contemporary work of old and new.  Interpreting the past to create a piece entirely original evolving in its own right."

I will also have a number of her pieces each month at the Scott Antique Show in Atlanta.

Jean will be at the Marburger Show on opening day Tuesday, April 3.  For an opportunity to meet the lovely artist and view her highly coveted works of art, please join us at the show in Tent F.

Homeward Bound

I am always asked if it is hard for me to part with and sale the antiques that I scour for throughout France and Belgium.  Well, since I never buy anything that I don't love and want to keep..... you betcha!!  There have been many times that I have walked around and around my cottage trying to find a place for or to justify keeping a piece knowing that there really is no more room at the inn.

However, sometimes I just can't let a piece go.  It might only visit for a while.  Or sometimes .......
