* Trivia

Sometimes I love trivia.  Just the simple little things which happen in our everyday lives.  The small things which make you smile or slightly annoy you.  Some trivia photographs from my last week or two follow.

A delightful old photograph of two children which I found in an antique shop.  Obviously a french influence.  Were they in costume?  Were they dressed for a specific occasion?  Questions abound.  It is dated in the corner, unfortunately the writing is illegible.  It will be fun to use in a collage.
Another interesting photograph found in the same shop.  Notice the men have guns.  Notice the hats.  Love it!
Some metal junque I discovered which I can't wait to play with.  Assembledge ... I can feel it coming on!

Now I remember why I don't wash the orange towels with the blue towels!  

Fireplace tiles have been installed.  It was hard to get a photograph straight on today because of the light.  You get the idea though.
Late afternoon light in the studio.  Floor is now completely laid.
