.+*Treasure Hunting*+. - La Canada

Today I went to an estate sale at the house and studio of artist and designer Vivian A. Dunn who worked designing custom wrought iron pieces until the age of 85. The La Canada studio was packed with an amazing, decades long accumulation of beautiful wrought iron pieces, brass, crystal clusters, metalwork and wooden architectural elements. I got some amazing rusty brass treasures and a beautiful wood mount. I have lots of ideas brewing already of what to use them for!
Making Mrs. Dunn proud, I hope! I have had this 2 headed dragon forever wondering what to do with it....and yes that is a reappearance of a West Warwick walmart baby you see! All tastefully mounted on the wood piece I got at the estate sale. Phase progress. More updates to come.
