nic-nak's from the castle #38

New Year and new Nic-Nak's.
Lovely orange lacquer Chinese doors from that great treasure trove, The Orient Express, in Richmond.
And this wonderfully whimsical Dolphin pedestal table.  Late 19th century from Ireland, manufactured by a firm that made carnival rides and attractions. From the incredible Martin Allen Antiques
A wee refresh for the West Wing at the Castle.

NYD 2017 Sea Baths, St Kilda Beach.

And with one more twist around the sun it was time to head out and celebrate another New Years Day. Staying with our beloved St Kilda Beach locale, this year we headed off to NYD 2017 @ St Kilda Sea Baths.  Hosted by the fabulous Arlen DeSilva, we were treated to a first class day of fun and frivolity and brilliant live performances by Adeva and Inaya Day.  Lots of lost friends surface for a reunion on this day and it was a total blast.  DJ legends Gavin Campbell and Paulie Main kicked our day off with a slamming set of lost stars for the year, Bowie, Prince and George Michael.

Big thanks to Arlen and Loretta.  Great Day.
