Wanted to share some pix from my lovely (birthday) weekend... I'm quite easily pleased... so no big parties... but it was the *perfect* weekend for me...
Started out on Saturday morning and went to a little town near us called Ellicott City, famous for its antique stores... we went to the Antique Depot, which is three floors of antique yumminess... here are my "finds" ...
|vintage sewing cabinet drawers, still in the framing - two matched sets!|
|vintage hammered drawer pulls, small glass vials, and two vintage door knobs|
|vintage thimble cabinet - notice the sliding plexiglass cover!|
|vintage cheese boxes (excellent for distress stains, color wash, PP mists - I'm just sayin'!|
|small OLD picket fence panel with OLD coat hooks|
needless to say, it will *not* be used for coats...
I'm thinking... ART!
Then we headed over to Savage and went to lunch at the Rams Head Tavern, which just *happens* to be located right next to my favorite store on the planet... The Queens Ink... !!!! There is also an antique mart in the basement of the center where QI is located... and my DH Jack stumbled across this beauty for only $10! Done!
|gorgeous printers' tray!|
That summed up Saturday's activities... then ... Sunday morning... Jack surprised me with this... a stack of presents!
Want to see what was in them???
More vintage sewing and cheese boxes (you detect a pattern yet???) Yes... I'm currently obsessed with old wooden boxes... there I said it... they say the most important thing is to admit you have a problem, right??? ROFL!
And then.... la piece de resistance.... OMG....
Seriously... how cool is that?? Not only is it just awesome because I LOVE clocks, and I really love this style... like a train station clock... but it has two fully functioning clocks... and if you know me... and a lot of you do... one will be set to my local time... and the other.... yep.... UK time! So... for any of my British friends... when you come to stay (*hint, hint*) you'll always know what time it is at home... But it actually looks like its FROM London.... Paddington Station.... London... LOVE.... :)
Then I had a skype birthday with Hels... yes... I was finally permitted to open my pressies.... which were deliciously lovely!
Two UK/British style canvas wall hangings,
a Union Jack pillow,
and this awesome mini pocket watch necklace!
Then.... yes.... we're almost done.... a Baltimore favorite.... Chesapeake Bay Blue Crabs for dinner! And mini cupcakes for dessert...
I can't imagine a better birthday.... hope you enjoyed coming along on the recap... have a great day, I'll be back later this week with some art to share... :)
