Unfortunately Debbie was home fighting bronchitis - get well soon dear - but Susan and her DH were minding the shop, which is looking amazing. How about that fabulous long French footstool, love that piece!
Anyway, yesterday afternoon I threw on warm clothes, leggings, a snug scarf, fingerless cashmere gloves so I could snap pics for you, riding boots,
First a stop at Vignette which is expanding constantly and full of quaint treasures thanks to Gail, Laurie and two new dealers. I checked out the hats, definitely for warmer weather - vintage versions of the trendy 'fascinators' being worn to weddings since William & Kate tied the knot last year........
.........then moved on to SuzAnna's Antiques. This vintage steamer trunk from the days of smaller ships 'crossing the pond' (not 13 story cruise ships acting like floating cities - and yes, I will actually be on one very soon, and am hoping it doesn't tip over!), was made by Hartman in the style of the famous Louis Vuitton trunks. It is awesome, especially the beautiful fabric pocket with the art deco pattern woven into it. If only one could travel like that today instead of chucking it all into a utilitarian duffel bag to conform to airline rules. This would be eye-catching in a studio for storing art and scrap booking supplies, wrapping paper, fabrics etc.
If you're in the vicinity, hurry on over to SuzAnna's Antiques, and the other charming Vintage Village shops - everything vintage and tons of antiques too.......and, if you go today, you can wish Susie of SuzAnna's a very happy birthday which is what I'm doing right now......"HAPPY BIRTHDAY dear Susie, and many, many more".
Edited: Yeah, think my comment thingy is back with this post......and along with it a whole new way to blog! I didn't request it but guess Google is now thinking for me!
