Shave And A Haircut

I remember as a kid people would sing a jingle:

Shave and a haircut, dum dum.


This statue of the guy in the chair getting the shave and haircut is sort of nostalgic to me. 


Always sort of relaxing to sit back and get cleaned up!


Especially the hot lather on your face in that reclining position. 


Then of course, all is well until the gunslinger barges in and ruins everything. 😉

The King And Queen

King And Queen

Took this photo of these two Chinese porcelain statues.


They remind me of royalty–a king and queen. 


They stand so tall, proud, and elegant. 


Together on the mantel, they make a wonderful centerpiece to the room. 


I like the contrast colors–him in tan and she is white with the accent colors on their robes. 


His grasp on the long beaded necklace and her open fan give them a air of motion and life.


Yet, the faces are calm and balanced. 


These are awesome pieces of art work. 


Don’t know what they are worth, but to me they have value of beauty. 😉
