Chinese Cork art




I'm heading down to to my friend Sharon's to make my last payment. I stopped at her fabulous chateau one day, looking around at all her wonderful treasures that filled her home. I spied the most unbelievable collection of Chinese cork art that I've ever seen! It all filled a china hutch. It was so beautiful. I couldn't get it out of my head. Knowing that my girl Sharon doesn't have a problem with parting with things. She'd be a lousy antique dealer if she did. I was reading her blog one day and there it is. She's ready to part with it.
Now that its here, where will it go? Looks like i might have to keep my eyes out for a china hutch.
Hoarder? Maybe.

cc,

Your new cork art collection is exquisite and I think I feel a pang of jealousy (lol). And when it comes to art and beautiful objects we do not hoard, we hold in trust to pass on at future time. Well that’s what I keep telling myself (lol). Anyway, enjoy your new treasure and thanks for sharing it with us. - G

Can you only imagine the Patience, Skills and Giftedness it takes to create one of these Masterpieces of Art?! Even if I were to have such skill nobody could afford the price I'd have to put on it... priceless right?!
