As promised, some shop windows in Old Town. This isn’t really a window, but there are some reflected in the mirror.
How fun are these martini glasses?
It’s a bit on the formal side, but I love things like this.
Couldn’t really get a good angle on these bottles, but I like the old glass. Everything inside this store is fabulous.
I was initially drawn to the red lampshade, but the old framed travel prints are a favorite too.
Have never eaten here, but I love Lebanese food and the look of this place.
Finally, a couple of random shots:
I’m wondering if this green was popular in George Washington’s day. Come to think of it, the color of the dining room at Mount Vernon is awfully close:
They have some great yellows in Old Town, don’t they?
I want those martini glasses! I’m usually more of a margarita girl, but I’m willing to switch to martinis just to use those glasses.
I hear ya. 🙂

I love the store windows and especially the store front reflected in the mirror. I do love all the yellows.
Thank you. Your post about blogging really resonated with me.
I love all of the different shots but the martini glasses are my favorites. Hallmark stores have something very similar in wine glasses, I just recently got one as a gift. They are so much fun!
Thank you for sharing all the gorgeous photos with us!
They have one with hearts for Valentine’s Day…might have to get it.
Beautiful photos, I like the shop with the old glasses and f course the Antoques shop. Today the cheerful glasses would great as well (bit of a bleak day).
Thanks, Caroline. It’s pretty bleak here too. I think you’ll like tomorrow’s post….
I love the framed vintage advertising in the lampshade shot. Those pieces always seem fresh and interesting to me.
You’re right about those yellows…
I’ve seen the posters before, but not the framed prints. I like these better too.
Oh! How I wish you lived in my part of the world! I would induct you into our happy little club, the Martini Mamas. I have a the Lolita “Retrotini” glass! Lovely collection.
Sounds like good times! 🙂
