Inspiration | Santos

I love vintage santos - there, I said it! I think they are extraordinary. I first learned to love them when I saw Mary Emmerling's collection in Country Home magazine. Yesterday I found this web site which has the most curious collection of artifacts I think I have ever seen on line. And not just that, the pieces are all photographed so beautifully - and if that's not enough - every thing's for sale. I stopped in my tracks when I saw this beautiful face and I knew she had to be on my blog today. She has carved wooden hair - I love that!

I am going to feature more items from Obsolete Inc. in the next few weeks. Many of the items are so 'powerful' that you just can't pile them all on to my little blog at once - they are too special - and it would be too overwhelming - so we will take them in small doses. Hope you appreciate them as much as I do!
