Tears.....And Anatomy of a Restoration Update

These beautiful "Tear Drops" by Flavio Poli for Seguso walked into my shop on Saturday.


The coloration is so ethereal, as if colored water were captured in the moment of dropping miraculously into a larger body of water.
Are these the tears that God weeps when we choose to hurt ourselves, another or our amazing home-earth?  I look at the beauty captured here and am reminded to walk a more thoughtful path, noticing what has been given.

Note: The sculptures, dating to the late 1950's, measure about 11 inches by 5 inches and are in perfect condition. The photos aren't great; so I will be retaking them in appropriate lighting. I just listed them on

Anatomy of a Restoration II

Here is a side-by-side of the mirrors. The proportions are a bit distorted for both mirrors, but this is what my girl will look like next week.

Thanks for joining me on my quest. Jones thinks that the mirror smells divine: I wonder what that means? My former most amazing dog, Buddy (huge rott/lab), loved antique furniture more than my family and loved checking out new finds.

Have a wonderful serendipitous week. September is on its way and I can't wait to get back into the swing of things.

  2. Those tear drops are amazing.
    Thanks for sharing all your wonderful finds. If only we had a smell dog is the same....his nose always knows better.

    1. Hi Patricia, What would we do without our dogs, cats and horses? Not to mention our children and heart friends. Have a great September.
