The trials and tribulations of a styled photo shoot at Relics. These are just a few of the many, many test shots done over a 2 day period before we finally got it right!
We spiffied up our store front by adding new asphalt, a fresh coat of paint, new welcome mats and some fun hanging flower baskets. We thought it would be fun to document the process with before, during and after photos...
Relics' book signing event for Veranda the Art of Outdoor Living by Lisa Newsom, the founding editor of Veranda Magazine went swimmingly. Lisa is so witty and charming. The store was filled with lots of wonderful guests who enjoyed meeting Lisa. It was so much fun!

We arrived in Brussels last night about midnight after a long hot sweaty day and 6 hour train ride. By the time we got to our room we collapsed. Tonight, our own bed!
Morning duck feeding of French baguette! Tres Francais.
Superb 18th century Italian terra cotta bust of a Roman nobleman. Great patina & detail.
A 17th century Spanish wooden desk that is a WOW piece for sure. All walnut, six drawers - 3 on each side, cut outs for your legs on the chair side & the top is one solid piece of walnut - 39 inches deep and 77 inches wide. Museum quality and simply amazing!
Here is the best find for today, she is an 18th century Spanish wooden virgin statue with glass eyes and a wonderful patina. The cage below her waist would have normally been covered with a dress.
Ducks are quacking and we are enjoying wine with the mistral winds and a cool 75 degrees! Gotta love the south of France when it is like this.
Here's the view from our little terrace...the river running behind the trees is full of ducks.
