Would love to have found those wine glasses!

My first antique that I bought was at an estate sale. A rolled-up heavy piece of paper, so I thought. It turned out to be an original watercolor art piece. I bought two and had them matted and framed. That was about 30 years ago. Yes, always look at the unexpected as little surprises unfold.


Love the wine glasses! I was once at a vintage store and someone was painting a piece of furniture using a gorgeous old quilt as the drop cloth!!! So I asked how much the quilt was (paint spatter and all). The person was shocked I wanted it and said $20 so I rescued it.
