After class, my friend and I went in search of food. Ended up at Amy's Cafe in Falmouth, just north of Fredericksburg along the Rappahannock. Had a falafel pita pocket and sweet potato fries. Yum. Went back to downtown and did some antique shop browsing. Here's what I found, for the most part. Not showing anything non-stitching related.
Okay. Now you are looking at this little porcelain violet cup with three feet made in Bavaria and wondering how is this stitching related? It is because I say it is. I saw it. Fell in love. And see a pincushion. I need to decide in the fabric should be purple or green. Velvet or not. I've already decided not to stitch something because I have a Sudberry pincushion to stitch already.
I found not one, but two of these coffee mugs. The first one is green. And I'm walking around with it saying how I'd like it better in blue, when voila, a blue one appeared.
This particular find thrills me. A Victorian Hair Tidy. I need to polish the silver. But you all know that is a terrific ort container.
And lastly, back at the hotel, I acquired one of those items I have been coveting for a few years. Maggie, a member of our guild, has a husband who is a very talented woodworker. Between the two of them, they have a line of elegant products - ort bowls, pincushions, laying tools, laying tool holders, etc. The company name is Sylvan Treasures. My wow purchase for the weekend.
Oops. I lied. Not my final post at all. I still have more to tell. LOL
