See A Curated Cabinet

Dear readers,

I am still working on setting aside some time to complete new articles to share with you on my humble blog. However, I have started a companion Tumblr account entitled "A Curated Cabinet" where I will make more frequent posts of photographs that I've taken or found of things that inspire me and this blog.

Curated Objects #2

Another quick update to whet your appetite. I happened across this vintage rhinestone necklace at a local antique shop a couple months ago and couldn't help but notice that it looked a bit like a skull! Thankfully, it was relatively inexpensive, and it now resides in my jewelry box (and occasionally around my neck!).

Until next time,
Madame Curatrix

Curated Objects #1

Good Heavens, has it really been that long since I've updated my fledgling blog? Alas, so it has. It seems that each time I came up with the inspiration to do a new post or other substantial update that pesky thing called 'school' reared its demanding head. However, for those of you that follow my blog (small in number as you may be at this time, hah), never fear! I have returned, and am brimming with ideas! In a way, the several months of not working on the blog has allowed me to form a clearer idea of how I intend to approach future installments. So, while I cannot promise updates daily or weekly, I can promise that you shall not have to wait nearly a year for each posting!

Various antique statues, a vintage Native American silver necklace, a German naval officer's dagger, and a large beaver skull from my private collection.

Now, to the matter at hand, this is the first of what I hope to be a series of short postings that will each feature a snapshot of items from my own collection of antiques, oddities, and other treasures that I have acquired over the years. I enjoy sharing the things I have been fortunate enough to add to my personal museum, as it were, and hope that you, dear readers, will also find them to be of some interest.

Until next time,
Madame Curatrix
