Old Victorian Hardware




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.

What a cool image! I think this antique hardware is addictive (or maybe I just have an obsessive personality).
