Michele from My Notting Hill and her friend Anne came up to Baltimore to join me at the McLain Wiesand Warehouse sale, which was a huge success. Great pieces and even greater prices! I was excited to be able to see some of David’s craftsmen/women at work, just like the elves in Santa’s workshop. Here one of them applies gold leaf to curtain rings. She’s got it down to an art!After we left McLain Wiesand, we headed down to Housewerks. They’ve just gotten some of the props from the Baltimore Opera Company which are terrific. Lots and lots of letters, including the orange ones above and these fun metal ones. Part of the fun is finding letters and spelling out little messages.
