The Tuesday Song of the Week

Two French Tuesday Songs of the Week in as many months?

I dunno.  But I sorta like this.

And I LERVE Yves Montand.  He was super-hot when he was young.  (Check out The Wages of Fear some time)

Le Jazz et la Java - Yves Montand

latest antiques and untiques

I've been finding some really marvelous marvels recently, such as...

 this BEAUTIFUL art glass shade

and this BEAUTIFUL gaudy Welsh (or maybe gaudy Dutch) teapot

PLUS this adorable Josef Originals kitten
 True fact: when I was a tot, the IDENTICAL kitten figurine was on a wall shelf in my house.

Something perfect for letting people know exactly the location of your residence.

 Here's something really special:
 a black singing cowboy


next up, a maaavelous moonglow lucite necklace

And lastly, for this post, we're going all MId-Century Modern:

Lillian Russell is in the house!
 AND -like all the other images - on more than one style of bag, to wit:

The Tuesday Song of the Week

Suh'm mushy.

I thought this was a boy band.

An AMERICAN boy band.

Turns out it's not a boy band,

and not American.

The guy's German from Germany.

But he's singing auf Englisch:

Let Me Be the One - Sasha

Today's antiques and untiques

As ever, some dillies:

A natty young gent circa 1700

 Natty AND tiny.  He's only about 3" tall.  His perch on accounts for another inch or so.
========================================================================

This is something EPIC special.  Gorgeous papier mâché shade, exquisite Made in Italy base
 =======================================================================

Josiah Wedgwood is in the house !!!

 

 I was semi-stunned to learn that Wedgwood no longer makes its iconic jasperware goodies.
=============================================================================

A SUPERMEGAEPIC 1950s skillet
 FLAWLESS condition.

I went a'thrifting yesterday, and found another AWESOME vintage skillet.  You might get to see that today or tomorrow.

For now, get any or all of the above here:
