it’s no secret that we’re unabashedly obsessed with vintage champagne coupes! If you’re looking for romantic and graceful our crystal coupe collection can’t be rivaled. So to make our case we’ve collaborated on a great little signature drink idea for an upcoming Open House & Tour Date with The Alexander at Creek Road on September22, 2019 from Noon to 4:00 PM.

I can’t think of a better Thingy Thursday post to begin 2015 than the amazingly creative and collected space of artist Greg Irvine. I was wowed by this collaboration between filmmaker Paris Thomson of SIRAP, and Editor Lucy Feagins of The Design Files. Together they made a short video documenting Greg’s remarkable home, his collections and his paintings.
Greg's collection of tortoise shell objects is stunning!
He has a large collection of vintage fabrics which he uses in his painting.
TITLE: View to the Garden with Blue • MEDIUM: oil on canvas • DIMENSIONS: 4ft x 5ft
Greg believes in surrounding himself with a lot of beautiful things. . . a practice I'm more than a little familiar with, but I think you call mine hoarding!
His sketch books are jaw-droppingly stunning! He has hundreds of them full of sketches/paintings like the ones above.
TITLE: Clarice Cliff & Flowering Gum • Limited Edition Print 1/100 • DIMENSIONS: 91cms x 84cms
I admit freely, without apology to anyone, that I'm a collector slash hoarder slash "if-you-don't-want-it-I'll-take-it" kinda chick. If someone put it in a garage sale, I bought it. If someone trashed it, I dumpster dived it. There is not a minimalist bone in my body and I have the junk to prove it. I come by this green-recycler-obsessive-compulsive behavior, not because I abhor overflowing landfills (which I do,) but because I'm neurotic - and I'm only sorta kidding here!
So, to make myself feel better about all that, I've decided to resurrect a weekly post that I began a few years ago and then let wane. It's called "Thingy Thursday" and as the name suggests, it will serve as a vehicle to showcase collectors and the "thingies" they collect. The plan is to begin with my own personal collections next Thursday, accompanied by specifics and rules and regs for a contest we'll be hosting on our Instagram and Pinterest.
But while you wait with baited breath for next week's "Thingy Thursday" post, I have a few archived posts that I would like to share with you from my friends, Stan Williams, author of The Find (also known as The Elegant Thrifter) and Lynn Goldfinger-Abram, the woman behind the marvelous online store, The Paris Hotel Boutique.
Take a look and walk away, as I did, with a case or two of collection envy!
