Love the south of France. Great scenery, food, wine and oh yeah, great antiques too.
Now we’re off to Brussels for more hunting and gathering for the store. We live for the treasures we discover and get to bring home.
We were invited to a convent today to view some pieces and were treated to a tour of the property. In the protected patio, a stone well head caps a well still in use.
Caught a train immediately after landing and headed south to Cordoba to begin work. We visited two of our sources, then were given a tour of an elaborate convent and two cathedrals. Fairly jet lagged but staying upright makes it easier to stay awake.
Our travels will take us to Spain, Belgium and France. Follow along as we post about our adventures!

These French antique fencing masks look especially great as a collection.
We just finished an installation of the re-claimed antique Belgian grey brick and thought our Facebook friends would appreciate seeing pictures. The contractor used a thick layer of compacted AB gravel topped with an inch or inch and a half of sand mixed with a little Portland. The bricks were set and then filled with a mixture of sand and Portland. The job turned out beautiful and really compliments the gates, doors and paint color.
What do you get when you combine an antique Spanish Stone Base Channel from a Olive Oil Factory and an antique French stone feed and water trough? You get a one-of-a-kind rustic and gorgeous water feature.
From one story to the next, this issue is filled with quality, beauty and creativity.
All of us at Relics wish you a healthy and happy New Year!
