What a gorgeous season of color we’ve had with our trees - breathtaking at times. How like God to give some of His best artistic talent to the process of death! God does not discard his creation lightly; He honors the passing with beauty and purpose. Maybe that is some of why we antiquers feel fulfilled in our passion – we are rescuing the old, repurposing the discarded, displaying the lasting beauty of old things. Our New Year’s mantra is a little different – “Out with the new, in with the old.” Happy New Year!!
