I always enjoy a good Antique Market, and can spend hours browsing for the interesting and unique.
In Alexandria we found this huge centre, full of bargain goodies.
Only the prospect of trying to get it on to the plane to come home restrained me from grabbing some of the big items.
I bought some old silver to play with. Two silver trays for $25!!
I've been cleaning them on and off for two days.
The one I really love is rectangular and very heavy.
Still more cleaning needed, but it is looking Much Better already.
Found some art in my Sydney wanderings.
At Bondi, a mosaic of Edwardian Bathing Belles,
And this statue of a surf lifesaver. He reminded me of that classic statue from antiquity The Winged Victory of Samothrace:
Except that the"wings" are a little low!
In a Mexican restaurant, a large jar and a tiny Mexican...
Mexicans love a lot of skull art!
A trio of flying ducks - these were stick-on decals in a friend's place.
How cute are they?
and, after three days of merriment, the Cardinals flew home for a good rest!
