Antiques

Over the past few years I have been collecting antiques (and replicas) to furnish my house. After many years of studying modern, sleek architecture I found that I had a yearning for rustic, hand carved objects.

On the left is an antique apothecary bottle which has been turned into a lamp; the shade is made of hand woven leather. In the center is the entry room of my house with colonial style curio cabinets and an intricate gold leaf mirror. On the right is my personal favorite – my night table. I refurbished an antique wooden chair with blue Spanish tile, on top of which is an antique (still working!) radio and an antique iron which has been turned into a lamp.

I find these rustic surroundings in my home a nice balance to modern devices and online work which fills my days.

Yesterday’s lunch: Quinoa burgers with caramalized onions, served with a side of seven bean soup. Dinner: Peruvian style ceviche with cilantro and toasted corn kernels.

Just finished a House, M.D. – Season 4 marathon this weekend…I love how autoimmune disease/lupus/rheumatoid arthritis/lyme disease are mentioned as a possible diagnosis in each and every case!

Stay tuned…for the next adventure of Rheumatoid Arthritis Guy!
