I think old silver trophies make lovely tabletop decor, especially when filled with pink flowers. I have my eye out for a few for the foyer but Ebay isn't very generous at the moment. I think one needs to view these as small investment pieces.
There is this one - I love the lines and the shape.
Parishotelboutique also has some beautiful trophies and Lynn, the owner, really adds a personal touch to the buying experience. This above trophy is from a bird race - I love that!
I bought a necklace from Parishotelboutique several months ago which was designed by the clever Tamara Berg. It had an antique "award fob" (isn't that the best term?) dangling from freshwater pearls. I get multiple compliments when I wear it and having a small piece of history around my neck just feels right. As well as that (ok, don't mean to bore you) the name on it is G. Stokes and Stokes was a famous Irish physician so one never knows...
Don't forget to check out Lynn's blog. I was surpised when I saw her bedroom - the colors are identical to the ones I'm using in mine, although I have a few mirrored objects and naked woman, of course. I find the pale aqua incredibly restful and the black and white beautiful but not jarring when I wake up.
Today the weather is dreadful which I love. It's the perfect day to get a chandelier painted pink and to continue my work on PCP (Petite Casapinka - thanks, Err - I appreciate the abbreviation.) If anyone sees a photograph of a particular pink that you think would be good for the chandy, please oh please let me know! Here's a little photo to give you a bit of inspiration.
