This is my latest typograhical find, and I’m quite taken with it. It is an old advertising sign printed on thick stock paper. The type bites deeply into the paper, making heavy impressions. The words are highlighted by the most gorgeous, rich, shimmery colors – teal, fuschia, purple, deep royal blue.
Deliciously Different indeed! If you also love this sign, feel free to pop right over to my etsy shop and snap it up!

One of the neatest things we have found lately is this antique lidded tea box that someone hand painted all around with hunt scenes. It still retains its brass hardware, and it is a charming piece for the horse or hunt collector.
The surface, however, is somewhat delicate – you wouldn’t want to put a glass of lemonade (or an icy mint julep!) down on the painting. So we topped it with a nice quality piece of glass, and voila! It is a fully functional and absolutely one-of-a-kind side table.
Between the wonderful scenes painted on the top and all four sides, and the gorgeous range of colors used it is sure to become an eye-catching accent in the right room. The box measures 2 feet square on the top, and probably about 27″ tall. It is perfect for a living room, den, an enclosed porch or even a unique touch for a dressing or guest room. You can find it in Warren Street Antiques in Hudson NY right now.

My unplanned and where-the-hell-did-the-last-month-go blog hiatus is over. I declare it to be so.
Steve and I were in our shop in Hudson yesterday and took a bunch of pictures. I know how much you guys enjoy our photo expeditions of Warren Street Antiques, so look for a complete one in a day or two. In the meantime, here’s a shot of some of our stuff. A gorgeous walnut bench with a fetching Nakashima-wanna-be look, a fabulous pair of gigantic lamps sitting on a cool pair of bentwood Thonet stands, and a sexy little cocktail table all done up in bluestone and hairpin legs.
See you in a day or two. (No, really.)
