A sneak peek at the February 2009 issue of The English Home magazine. I was delighted when an editor contacted me, asking for photographs. Three of my photos appear in the magazine's three-page feature on vintage mercury glass.
In the photo at left,Tucson-based artist Vanessa Valencia's painting "Pan's Widow" leans behind a collection of antique mercury glass candlesticks. In the images at right, mercury glass candlesticks and decorative vases are grouped together, while a rare 19th-century French platter is singled out for attention.
And the winner is...
The winner of the Thanksgiving giveaway is Mary of Miss Dilletante's Playground. She will receive Toronto-based artist Colette Copeland's beautiful collage. Thank you to all who wrote thoughtful comments about gratitude. Some of you have endured terrible unexpected loss and trial, but still manage to count your blessings every day. Others expressed their thanks for America's fresh start with a new president. No matter what individual challenges we face, all of us have much for which to be thankful.
Beginning Sunday, Nov. 30, readers will have a chance to win a prize in a Christmas giveaway. The winner will receive a 19th-century French treasure, so be sure to stop by Paris Parfait and enter your name.
