Just a little post today to update you on what I have been up to.
I have two amazing antique treasures to show you.
Let’s begin with the one that I found in my favorite shop.
Yes, it’s that shop again!!! . . . Always Home in Durham, N.C.
I went to browse the shop to see if there was something that I could use
for an upcoming Spring post . . . and then I ran into this: Hello pretty!!!
I am drawn to beautiful mirrors. This one was calling out to me.
I read the tag . . . “Antique French Mirror, 1870”
I started snapping pics with my iPhone…notice my very serious shopping face.
So why was I taking photos? …. Had to consult my friend, the French Antique Aficionado
and ask her a zillion questions . . . she is so very kind and patient with me!
Lidy told me that the style was Louis XVI.
I put the mirror on a “hold status” and came back the very next day to claim my prize!
Old? … take a look a the back of this beauty.
Now it is sitting in the corner of my bedroom, waiting for me to decide
the place of honor in which it will go. I fear the domino effect is going to take place.
And . . . did you notice a new piece on the bedside table? It is a Juliska pitcher.
When I saw it sitting on a shelf at HomeGoods, I had to blink my eyes
to see if I was seeing correctly!…..I have swooned over that Juliska pattern!
It is waiting to be filled with pretties and placed somewhere that I can see it often!
Now you probably are wondering about the other “antique treasure” . . .
Well, maybe saying antique is a bit of a stretch, but she is close
and definitely a treasure!! My mom!
I am spending time with her after her mini knee replacement surgery….yes, at almost 93,
she went through this surgery because she was a good candidate . . . she is very healthy.
She is doing wonderfully and thanks to everyone who have asked about her recovery.
She is not quite 6 weeks post op . . . walking with assistance (sometimes) with a cane . . .
no walker for her anymore and hopefully the cane will be placed in a closet soon!
Have a beautiful day and stay tuned for a great new and exciting Floral Friday!!!
