What Do Angelina Jolie And Brad Pitt Have in Common With Atomic Moxie?...Archibald Knox

As some of you know we are always out and about searching for hidden treasures and lost goodies. Last week we found an amazing Teapot and warmer...I really didn't know anything about Liberty of London tudric pewter or even Archibald Knox other than a brief look up years ago. But when I spied this beauty I knew it was something very special...absolutely everything about it is stunning...the lines, the patina, the craftsmanship. As it turns out Angelina and Brad collect Archibald Knox,,,who can blame them its amazing. So Atomic Moxie and Brad and Angelina all know stunning beauty when they see it:) Take a look for yourself...

Liberty of London
Its it gorgeous, even the pins that hold the teapot on the warmer are stunning. Whats so amazing about this pewter is that you can polish it to a high shine just like sterling silver, but I cannot bring myself to do that...the patina is just so rich and lovely. Would you polish it? Would Angelina or Brad?

Boy I sure wish I knew how to get in touch with Brad and Angelina...

Well, we meet again...

Well, we meet again...swear I must be the worst blogger known to man or beast.
It seems like the time is just flying by...more-so than usual. This year hasn't been a stellar one for Chez Atomic Moxie, sadly we have lost a couple of family members , had a couple of set backs but just like a Timex watch we have taken a beating but we are still ticking.

I am still not sure just what I want this blog to be...
  1. A blog about questing for Mid Century goodies
  2. A blog on how we are creating an On-Line small business for ourselves.
  3. A How To Blog...how to start a business, survive retirement etc
  4. A blog that shows us at our quirky best or worst for that matter
More than anything I enjoy connecting and helping if I can, hey I was a Regional Trainer for more years than I like to admit so its sort of in the blood.

I love sharing our finds with all of you...even the quirky little scenarios I make up about the pieces ( before you ask I picked that up from my Mother...stick with this blog and you will hear more about her, she was amazing)

What do you think? I know you read a lot of blogs and we are just one more in the big pool...but I really would like you hear your opinions. I need you!

You also need to tell you about Naked Ken.
