Seen around Hobe Sound

Hobe Sound is just a small little town.  In spite of its size there are lots of interesting shops to visit in and around Hobe sound.  My favorite shop is Chuckles.  Maria and Jerry own Chuckles. Without fail, every time I visit there is something new to see.  For example, I hopped on my bike and rode over today. This is what I found:
This has to be the coolest piece of furniture I have ever seen at Chuckles. Notice that both skeleton keys remain with the chest. Another neat item currently at Chuckles is this beautiful Armoire.

Once Jerry had just a Armoire door with lock and key. I passed on that purchase. I have regretted that decision, ever since. It would have been the perfect floor length mirror, with it’s beautiful beveled mirror and key to unlock a mystery behind any wall I placed it on.

Hand painted leather screen.
A beautiful dressing table. 

Another great mirror and a vintage Dickens ice skating figure. 
This lovely old shaving mug and saucer was discovered at Pennies For Heaven, down the road in Tequesta, FL.  

I have to include this  pastel portrait of my friend Caroline. A series of portraits were done in pastel of Caroline’s family in the 1960s. When she showed me a portrait of her brother in his Boy Scout uniform I immediately recognized that the portraits needed to be placed in acid free mats and backing. There is already some damage on each portrait due to the cardboard used to frame them back when they were made. As of yesterday they are in safe hands and will soon be protected for years to come.
And, I must mention that I had great luck at the Stuart Flea market, last Saturday when I stumbled on this great marble lamp for $5.  All it needed was a bit of elbow grease and fresh wiring.  

Since I temp you with a little Christmas, here is a little bit more . . .

My friend, Doreen made the Bethlehem scene for my carved Nativity that I found at the Hobe Sound Bible College Thrift.

No post would be complete with out including my Puppas.  Here is a typical morning meeting with our neighbor Molly and her little dog, Jimi Hendrix.

And I end with a few great items seen just a little north of Hobe Sound in port Salerno, FL.  This is a quirky new shop with lots of unusual items available at reasonable prices:
