Went to an auction last night and bid on some very cool old hardware lots. I got into a bit bidding war with a dealer and had to quit while I still had cash in the pocket. I still got a nice array of hardware, decorative pulls, hinges and other sweet pieces which I plan on using as part of my assemblages and flourished gilding collage.
It's always amazing to me how when I get passionate about something new the flow seems to be streaming in from other close friends .
My friend and bead artist Kristen Orr is busy collecting interesting old doorknobs. I'm on the hunt now for them as well.
Easy to become obsessed....Keeps life interesting and exciting.
