I am going to start with this beautiful done just one of many in his house
Oh Vannaaaaaaaaaaa look at this I touched them LOL Richard and I are teasing Vanna from delusions of grandeur because she loves these old domes also some with bridal head pieces in them
I don't know which dinning room or ladies parlor or sitting room we were in for this picture. That house is just gorgeous a southern mansion well really a Missouri pre civil war mansion i guess.
One of my favorite rooms was the kitchen i knew it would be with the staffordshire dogs and those large chickens about 4 foot tall that is on his kitchen island they are in the center fold of the June issue of Victoria Homes magazine page 44-45.
Again I don't remember what room I was in here I think the upstairs bedroom that was on the south east corner . I think it was in pinks and blues. Richard can correct any mistakes .
Then a friend of his Marilyn came over she lives in Louisiana Mo anyway Marilyn was a doll , beautiful sweet I would say southern lady. she had on the most beautiful ball gown fuchsia taffeta dress looks like she was going to be featured in a movie Gone With The Wind. She came dressed in the period of the house to help Richard with his tour to give his niece a break. I could have visited with Marilyn the rest of the afternoon
Before I went to the house I stopped at Richard's shop and seen Sissy and Richard's sister and sister in law.
I took a few pictures real quick around the shop because there was lots of people looking around.
First picture in the shop, I am a chair person and liked this very much
as I was leaving Richard told me about the local antique mall so I had to check it out and was surprised how big it was in such a small town. Anyway I found a couple small things .
I found some more pearl collars which I think looks so good around Sally Stitch's neck( My mannequin). I had one which i just showed on my previous post so here is a picture of all 3 together. I have seen them made into necklaces buy adding a huge rhinestone pin in the middle and then add a silk ribbon to tie it with. I will do one like that
Ya all know who this is ? Richard's sweetie Sissy she was in the shop as I said I guess to stay out of the way of the traffic of the home tour
Then I collect rhinestone face clocks and found this blue one at the Clarksville antique mall very cheap so had to have it
then here is a couple more pictures form Richard's old Stuff shop
wait one more this was on one of the fire place mantles in which room don't remember
This picture was taken while in one of his ladies rooms, look at that cranberry glass in the bathroom, elegant
It was a very nice day
I wanted to mention also that I am having dinner this week with Ginger & Bob do ya know where they live?
