Belated Birthday

brass owl incense holder

Yesterday was my birthday. I had a lot of work to do so I decided to take the day off the internet as a treat. I spent a lovely afternoon at the home of Colleen — who will be featured in an upcoming Covet Garden. She has a lot of lovely vintage brass objets and I told her that I always admire these things but I never find them thrifting but because of their weight, I always balk at the price of postage when I think about buying them online.

Colleen’s place is right around the corner from a Value Village, so I stopped in on my way home. And I found this chill dude for $3. It’s an incense burner but I have an idea to use it as a base for a carving. I’m thinking this guy needs a stand!
