You've most likely been losing sleep, tossing and turning, wondering what item I found on my weekly thrift trip. Actually, this past weekend was the last Scott Antique Show of the season, which is bittersweet, since there won't be another one until the weekend after Thanksgiving, but being the last day, vendors are ready to bargain.
I used my dickering skills, with a bit of extra charm, to land a great deal on this fabulous creamy mod head, with perfect patina, dated 1961, from Ray Mongenas, of Mongenas Antiques, Loveland, Ohio. Funny, his location is on Hanna Avenue, Hanna being my maiden name. He told me the fascinating story, how he found the head while picking at an old house in Cincinnati. Anyway, she's ultra quirky, very "alien meets Picasso".
Her most delicious feature is her low chignon. If you remember, I was all about the chignon last week. Was I remembering the future? These synchronicities seem to come in groups of three for me. I'll be watching for Chignon No. 3. Maybe this subject deserves a poem. I think it might.
Happiness is when what you think,
what you say, and what you do
are in harmony.
