Gifts For ME!

Quote for the Day:
"The manner of giving is worth more than the gift."
  ~Pierre Corneille, Le Menteur

One of Andy's customers came by the house yesterday and told him that his wife was selling off some of her antiques and collectibles and wanted to know if Andy wanted to come by and see if he wanted any of them.  (Andy has become well-known in these parts as being a wheeler and dealer in antiques and vintage glassware.)

Unbeknownst to me, Andy went over and bought quite a bit from her.  I didn't know about it till he got home and asked me if I wanted to come out to the car and see what he got.

The first thing he showed me was this beauty...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE stained glass, so I immediately went gaga over it!  :)

THEN...he pulled this out of the box...

OMGoodness!!!  I was just over the top with this one!!!

I think I know where I'm going to hang them, but they both are heavy and will need a good, strong nail to be hung on.  They both have chain hangers already attached!

The Singer sign will definitely go in my sewing room window, and I *think* the bird will get hung in the kitchen window where the sun comes through nicely!  



  1. Wow. Beautiful. What a great find. I love that singer sign.

  2. What great finds! I am sure he got bonus points for both purchases! Are you gearing up for Bonnie's mystery? How's the gf diet going?

  3. They are beautiful. Bev

  4. Wow!! what beautiful pieces! Love, Love. Always wanted to learn that craft.....
