Shards of Beauty

“Maybe it’s not about having a beautiful day, but about finding beautiful moments. Maybe a whole day is just too much to ask. I could choose to believe that in every day, in all things, no matter how dark and ugly, there are shards of beauty if I look for them.” 
                                       Anna White,  Mended: Thoughts on Life, Love and Leaps of Faith

If you consider that there are 250 dealers at our antiques & art gallery, and if you extrapolate that each dealer has at least 75 items in their booth or showcase, that's more than 18,000 objets and articles. Each was selected by that particular dealer for a particular reason: its beauty, its unusual shape or color or size, its functionality, its age, its outrageous funkiness or its value. Although "shards" conjures up images of something broken, today let's think more in terms of "slivers" or "little moments" of beauty as we walk the aisles of Hiden Galleries.
