...returns...complete with lid now, courtesy of #4 son, Chris.
I was expecting to pay him for his efforts, but apparently, Happy Father's Day to me...Thank You, Chris!
As you may recall, Fatima is a cigarette / cigarillo dispenser made by the Kindel Graham company in San Francisco, dating back to the 1920s. You push down the button and out comes a smoke...pretty cool. This one was probably made in the 1930s, and polished up pretty nicely. Still works just fine, and now that she has a lid again, she takes her place as another beautiful, art deco, objet d'art in my collection. How exciting...ok, so I'm exaggerating, but it is a cool conversation piece and a slick way to get a cigarillo.
We opened the pool this week:
...and started procuring flowers for the back yard...now that really is exciting...love how Karen turns our backyard into a beautiful, resort like oasis of peace and serenity. After a very long winter, the transformation is finally underway. Stay tuned, more to come.
On Saturday we went searching for more flowers and garden accessories...perhaps a statuette, or a fountain, etc. Instead, we found these:
We found them at Myrtle May's Boutique, which is attached to a garden / landscaping business on the beltline...I think these particular statues were Art Prize entries over the last 2 or 3 years...pretty cool. No, we did not buy them...not sure if they're for sale or not.
Finally had decent weather both days on the weekend, so we spent a lot of it outside, just relaxing and enjoying being in the sunshine and warmer temps.
We did watch a good movie on Friday night...Forget Paris (Billy Crystal and Debra Winger). That is an hilarious movie that handles the ups and downs of a serious relationship very well...highly recommended.
And speaking of movies, here's entry #2 in the "Day In The Life Of A Vintage Toy" series:
Later, mcm fans...
