a few pretties in Newport RI
That's a lofty goal, right?
Well, we can keep learning and trying and growing.
Please enjoy a few pictures today, of the human figure...
At left, a winged goddess
showing us her bust
and here's another bust... (plus a selfie)
Imagine having a home large enough to fit furniture this scale and have it look small.
Check out the molded ornate columns on this fireplace. Nothing is too functional to not need embellishment.
I wonder if the woman of the house marveled at the beauty around her, or just took it as her due???
lol if this were my man's desk, it would be covered with papers, folders, mail, coins, dust, music, guitar pics, and the ephemera people have but don't know what to do with.
Cole Porter was friends with the man of the house and often visited.
My poodle was named for him....jazzy....
The painting is of such a bride, and lookie who she wanted in her portrait...
A black standard poodle.
Warmed my heart...
