We Made it to Milan!

After an unexpected seven hour layover yesterday in the Atlanta Airport, we finally made it to Milan. The Duomo was breathtaking and my octopus salad tasty! On to Lake Como tomorrow to be with our dear friends at the villa they rented on the lake. Viva Italia!!!!!

The Oldest Objects at Relics

We acquired two antique Phoenician terra cotta amphoras on our last buying trip. They were used to transport wine on ships. They were created with a pointed base so that they could be embedded upright in soft ground, such as sand. These are 4 - 5th century BC.

Gate and Fountain From Relics

Client install of a gate and fountain from Relics. Makes quite a charming entrance. The gate and fencing was composed using antique iron panels from Relics. The fountain in the background is the perfect finishing touch.

Re-purposed antique bracero into a chandelier...

A Spanish bracero is a kind of fire pit that was, and sometimes still is, used indoors to heat homes in Spain. We inverted the piece and added a column of new iron to create an interesting and custom chandelier for a client. It is finished off nicely with battery operated candles for ambiance.

We saved a baby hummingbird!

We found this baby hummingbird on the ground behind the store yesterday. Gibran was able to scoop it up in a cup without touching it and placed it back into the nest. It was still there this morning, with the mom hovering around nearby. We think it will make it!

Long and productive day!

Started our day at 6:00 am and just barely above 40 degrees.  Markets started late at 2:00, but we were early shoppers and found good things.  Walked 20,000 steps in total and finally say down to dinner at 8:00 pm after a non stop day of wheeling, dealing and loading.
