Antiques and cutting back

Hope everyone had a good weekend. We certainly did, staying up in the mountains, taking photos, looking at antiques and old buildings….


This was taken at an antiques emporium with lots of nice vignettes. I like the dark tones and the beaded fringe on the lampshade, even thought it’s not something I would use.

I’d love to buy that old watering can, but $89 seems a bit steep.

I’m thinkin’ this clawfoot bathtub display was not planned, and they just needed a place to store the rugs, Batman bike and American flag.

I did buy some antique glass bottles and a teacup & saucer, but will save those for future photos.

Windows in an old, abandoned warehouse.

On the way back, we passed through a little place called Buckeystown, which has a lot of nice old Victorians. I especially liked this one:


I need to cut back on posting for a while so I can work on some projects, so will be blogging on Monday, Wednesday and Friday for now. Thanks so much for your patience.

    Love the first picture of the clock. My dad collects clocks and that one looks like something he doesn’t have in his collection. Always love victorian homes and all the gingerbread. Glad to hear you had some time in the mountains.

    I like the first photo, too. Especially the little drawing of the dog. He looks so regal.

    I can understand the cutting back. I think I need to do it as well as much as I like it but I write much less other things.
    I love antiques shops. We have a few here but they are totally over-priced.
    That Victorian house is a real beauty.

    Some great antiques there! I just love the last photo of the house…what a great place to live!

    I love the first two photos best. The golden tones adding to the sense of the items having been here a long time, maybe even longer than some of us! Great photos. I’ll look for you M-W-F. Would painting be one of those projects? BFN, Cheryl

    I like the way the light shines through the beads of the lamp in the first photo. Looks like a really cool shop.

  9. Great shots. I love antique clocks and especially liked the colors in your first picture.
