First, let me show you a new favorite.
John, me and my mom went out to dinner downtown with another physician and her sister who is visiting our town. After dinner as we were driving through downtown, we noticed that one of our favorite antique store who is having a big sale this weekend was still open. I knew they were just there to prepare for the big sale. So, when John asked me to go and ask the owners what time they will open in the morning, I was kinda embarrassed, but we were really hoping we would get invited to browse around so I knocked on the door. Sure enough, we were invited in even if it was already late.
and it is from the 1800's. I bet you are curious where I am going to put it. Well, I have room in the guest room because I moved the leather chair and ottoman from there into my mom's bedroom. The 2 chairs and ottomans that were in my mom's bedroom were moved to the store last Tuesday and one of them was already sold by Wednesday morning.
How about a little tour of the antique shop?
We also bought a Sevres bowl centerpiece, a silver plated bowl and an oil painting. I am sure you will see them in future posts. John was so funny. He actually has been eyeing on this Sevres centerpiece but I kept resisting because it is big and didn't know where to put it. So, he asked me wouldn't it be nice for one of my tablescapes? LOL!
I wanted that tipping coffee urn. Lady Katherine, you should take a look at it if you ever come here. I know you want one. It is a big set on a really big heavy tray.
For my pink contribution, I have my mom in a pink dress and a pink scarf.
We went back to Perkins Rowe in Baton Rouge and ate at California Pizza in the Town Square.
Now, just a little update on the store. Those are the 2 chairs and ottomans that I moved from my mom's bedroom. One of them was already sold the day after I brought them to the store.
I brought a few more stuff last Tuesday. On Wed, we went to Baton Rouge. I stopped by the store to bring an item or 2 on Thursday and the bar set on the table and the flatware and caddy were both gone, sold! The chair had a "Sold" sign on it with the buyer's name. It was just waiting to be picked up. I am having so much fun with this shop. It's like a toy. I get to shop and I get to decorate. What more could I ask for?
