Brass Pineapple and New Art

I don't know about you but I tend to keep a growing list of must-haves. They are mostly antique, vintage, hard to find items, and they are not cheap. That's why some of them continue to stay on the list and are not yet in my house. 

Brass pineapple is one of them. It started with my search for a brass pineapple ice bucket for the bar cart. Months later, after going through bidding wars on eBay or having to settle for a less original option, I finally realized that it's the shape of the pineapple I am after, and not so much of me actually going to use it as a container. So I opted for this brass pineapple candle holder instead, almost 11" in height in perfect condition with an elegant patina. 

It completes my Regency-themed vestibule. 

This is the Mark Tabbener sketch from our recent London trip. Edmond at YM Art did such a good job at double matting and framing it. 

I am kind of liking it in my bedroom. 

The Eloise print is now in my home office - Anthony insists on these plush buddies keeping me company while I work - did you notice the colour from Miffy's jumpsuit is a perfect match to the Eloise's purse? :) 

This is the vintage brass plaque from the Portobello Road Market. It's now in our laundry room. I will need to take a better picture of it during a sunny day.
