Tiny and Pricey
What to do when the winter blahs are ever present, economy in the garbage, ennui abounds? Well, go antiquing! We went to Mt Vernon yesterday and had the best of luck finding so many beautiful things, here are the mashers that came out of a museum collection, and the make me sigh tiniest ever tins (they are darned expensive for something so bitsy, but I just couldn't resist--the cup and plate will be $28, the pitcher $48), I love the baby tin type, look to see mama in the corner; and the early butter pat press has a thistle design that is so pretty. We visited Carolines Schoolhouse, First Brick Antiques, Polly Anns of course, and Alice's Wonderland (where gorgeous beads and scrapbooking are mixed in with funky and exceptional antiques and lots of cats sleeping on the tables!)--it was a good day.
