A day at the Antique Market

This weekend my kids and I walked over to the Chicago Antique Market to have a look around.

There are always so many things I see that I would love to have including this old tool box. The top three tiers open up for drill bits, but I could see filling those with colored pencils and all those little drawers below could house all kinds of art supplies.

These Japanese glass fishing floats reminded me of Terry Grants recent quiltfeaturing a lovely green glass ball on the sand. I found one of these on the beach in Northern California when I was a teenager, it was a lovely pale blue green color.

Following in the nautical theme there were all kinds of fixtures to outfit your home in steam punk fashion.

What is it about old medical equipment and cabinetry? This would be a cool addition to a studio.

Nice little painting on metal of Diego and Frieda.
