A Rather Bizarre House

Driving back from the CHA last week we stopped in Carpenteria, a little town south of Santa Barbara. Cruising down Walnut Avenue we saw this house! Wow!! Talk about bizarre! Take a look ... 

 It is over-the-top Victorian ... gingerbread ... shingles ... curls, peaks, corners ...

Then we looked in the upstairs window and saw this angel ...

In another ... behind a couple of Gothic gargoyles ... there was the Duke himself ... John Wayne in full cowboy regalia!

Behind this window is something ... but what?

This must be some place at Halloween! Spooky! Bizarre!

Tiny Birdhouse ... Got some tiny birds?

These small birdhouses are handcrafted from reclaimed wood by an artist on the Central Coast. The weathered wood makes a perfect contrast with fresh flowers and plants. Put these in a flower pot, a rock garden, a flower arrangement or in a vase by themselves. Any way, they look terrific.

The mini birdhouse is about 4-1/4" tall and the house with the post is about 19" overall. We only have these five ... priced at $19.95 each.

A Couple of Decorated Vintage Bottles

We found these two vintage bottles topped with handcrafted decorations. One is built with turquoise stones soldered in a cross atop the bottle. The other has a shell and some pearls along with a gorgeous sea fan coral. Pretty neat ... perfect decorations for any home or office.

The sea fan bottle is $145 and the cross bottle is $95
The two statues in the photo are 19th century santos statues from Europe. These are carved wood and are fabulous. The padre is $795 and the angel is $695. The tall elegant sterling silver candlesticks are made by Richard M. Woods & Co. from the 1930s and are $295 for the pair.

Vintage Florentine Woodwork ... Boxes, Trays and Dividers

We got back to Los Gatos from our trip last night. Lots of exciting new product and ideas from the CHA are swirling in our heads. Meantime, we did some antique shopping on the way home and found these wonderful Florentine woodwork items. Boxes, Trays and Dividers. We always pick these up when we can. These are the REAL stuff ... made in Florence, Italy ... not the contemporary reproductions made in Asia.

We love the carving, bright paints and gilt applied to these pieces. Some show a bit of honest wear ... they are vintage after all! Prices range from $49 to $79, depending on the piece.
