This past weekend, David and I hit a few antique stores in and around Calgary.
I'm searching for a nice side table for my living room armchair, but of course, I cannot find a thing.
I did, however, find a mighty little urn:
After I cleaned it up, it looked cheery and pristine.
On another note, the maker (Nova Scotian crystal) of this tiny clock (a Christmas gift from my mother) has gone out of business. Such sad news. They were the only crystal maker in Canada, located in a small city on the east coast. Their products were expensive but so beautiful. I have a few coveted pieces. You can read about the closing here. Sadly, 43 people are losing their jobs in an already depressed economy.
In other news, during our antiquing adventure, I found a few more things that I didn't bring home!
I am coveting this Wedgwood Jasperware cobalt sugar bowl, but for $185, they can keep it (if you see one at a garage sale, or have one you don't want, please get it for me and I will pay you back). Only partly joking. :}
I also fell for this Aynsley dinnerware set. I just love the blues and pinks and the pattern, but it's a little too busy for my current aesthetic:
I also really liked these pretty dutch candlesticks, but left them at the store too! I am thinking about going back for these...
Have a happy week.
P. S. I have no news on my recent repeat MRI (6 days ago) but expecting a call from my doctor soon. I will keep you posted.
