Shopping for PATINA....

Howdy Vintage Friends EVERYWHERE....!

As ALWAYS, I hope this post finds your 'junking cup' running over....hahahahaha....At the very LEAST....I hope you're having a SWELL weekend....!

I'm working my butt off shopping the GREATEST Show in the US so PLEASE forgive my lack of posts....I'm just popping in quickly to share some YUMMY finds with you....Each & every piece has the most D.I.V.I.N.E patina my eyes have had the PLEASURE of alighting on....!!

REAL patina can't be manufactured....It's a a natural process occurring over a period of time through constant use & wear.....**happy sigh**
Painted over & over through the years....This pieces patina is PERFECTION....!
If this LOVELY piece of hardware could only talk....I wonder what it would say about the hands that have touched it over the years....

Well Friends I must away....Along with sourcing Treasures comes a myriad of responsibilities....Paperwork & packing to name but two....!

Cheers for now,
Tamarah :o)
