while driving in sonoma county during the thanksgiving holiday, we stopped a great little antique shop.
i have been working with a friend/client in NYC for a few years and still have a few outstanding pieces we need to find for her home. one of them was one more vessel to sit on her wine bar. well, the first thing i saw when i walked in to this hidden treasure location was this great little guy. it was a grab and go scene!!
so, i brought him home and he sat quite well with my collection of odds and ends, and at that moment i decided i was going to keep looking for my friend and keep this for myself. totally attached...like this little guy and i were meant to be together forever.
well, my friend came to town last week and i caved and passed on this little treasure and there is no looking back and the feeling of ambivalence has passed. i know she will enjoy this more than i, but there was still a twinge of sadness. kidding.
don't you think the new and old in the photo compliment each other quite well? the only thing missing was the brandy inside of the glass canteen.
