A story of things Part 2

Where to start with this menagerie of things? Well how about the newest object to enter my home. On an excursion to the farmers market at Speers Point I decided to venture out to Lake Macquarie Gallery. And so after calling in to see my brother at Teralba, driving past the house squashed by an angry man with a massive machine he obviously pinched for the purpose of annoying the occupants I headed to the Teralba antique shop where I spotted this beautiful vase. It once belonged to a lady in New Lambton who had to rid herself of her treasures to go into an old peoples home.  The Japanese Kokeshi doll belongs to a pair and were found at the local school fete many years ago. They're are a little bit battered but that only adds character. Art on the wall by me and the little wooden house in the foreground was cut by my husband.  There are some very old books in there also that belonged to my grandmother. Oh dear! what a lot of things.

I love doilies and I also love fresh fruit! I'm not sure where this doily came from but It features strongly in this still life. Also the bowl with the purple base was made by local artist Susan Myerson. I bought that from the Hunter St Campus Tafe years ago when I was going to evening classes. This bowl was exhibited in the upstairs gallery and I immediately was drawn to it. Ever since it has had pride of place in my home.
