My antique market foundlings...
It was one of those weekends where MrD and I didn't have anything planned and decided to stop by an antique store.
As usual, I would assure MrD by telling him that I didn't really have anything in particular that I was looking for. After being married for this length of time, he should know that those words don't mean anything. In fact, more often that not, I will find something!
And indeed I did!
To begin with, I found this...
A metal-gild mirror with cut-mirror inlays. Understated elegance.
Next, I found this....
to add to my collection of cloisonné enamel vases.
I think they'll do... don't want to have too many of them unless of course I come across one that I have to have.
Never say never
An occasional table made of oak
with barley twist legs
Apropos, I'm in a middle of trying to convince MrD that those purchases were necessary and at a bargain. It would have cost him a lot more in any high street store. I'm actually saving him from spending a lot of money!
Am I amazing or what!
