Q: Need some help?

A: Do you know?

I am rather addicted to Art Deco. For that reason, I have a collection of Art Deco lamps, including some restrikes from original deco dies. The lines are deliciously sensual, the beauty unmatched in any period since.

The price tags are hefty but as any shopping addict knows... that is never a consideration.

I find it rather ironic that this addiction never entered my mind when the challenge surfaced. A very close second addiction, without a doubt, would have to be my vintage lingerie collection. You can find me wandering the streets most nights at 2 am trying to score a Madeleine Vionnet... usually ivory satin.

    Dito, art deco gives a link to style and artistic freedom, seems almost a supernatural link to a bygone era, soon, I would say to have a come back... those guys had the spirit and the courage with the zest for life... a break away movement with a real core uniqueness..... look at the planes, the trains, the cars, the buildings, what a time... proof that good things can come to an end!...

    Thanks to all who have stopped by to comment and prop. This is a languishing image from the Olympus days. In the beginning I understood nothing about any part of the process. I am learning that what I believed was trash really is not. Now I regret the never-ending delete, delete, delete from those days. Again, thanks.

    Phil ~ Your words are spot on regarding the planes, trains, cars, and buildings of that period. The designs from the deco days are, for me, very futuristic and I love the quite simple geometry of it. Fashion from that period is the same... some real pioneers willing to take some risks by moving outside the fashion world's comfort zone. To me, the most feminine and sensual lines ever put to paper.
