A Little Winter Antiquing

 We have had a relatively mild winter so far but lots of rain so indoor fun is certainly on the agenda. And in my book that means a trip to my favorite spot for antiquing...the Queen of Hearts in Alpharetta, Georgia! Want to come along?

 One of the first things I spot is this collection of chunky candlesticks in pretty tones of antique grey. They would make a fabulous statement on a mantel!

 And have you noticed...succulents are everywhere! The season doesn't seem to make a difference. I love that little wreath!

 And here's a larger one with flower pots...reminding me of my own FLOWER POT WREATH!

 If you know me, you know I love tureens and the details on this one are especially pretty!

 And I love the octagon shape of this one!

 Here's an unusual way to display a group of cuttings...maybe flowers in the spring.

 And you know I love the bunnies...

...and this family of sheep!

Copper pots always draw me in! I love their patina.

And here are some more displayed with a Provencal print that just calls my name!

I always have to stop and visit any Victorian quadruple silverplate that I see. You can always find such unusual pieces! I love the oak leaves and acorns!

And here's another one in a pretty sugar bowl! If you learn to recognize it you can always bet that it's over 100 years old since quadruple silverplate was not made past 1900.

Here's a fun idea...displaying small faux trees in vintage silver champagne buckets.

The shape of this antique French clock caught my attention...

...but it was the unusual color and shape of the works that was really amazing!

And I leave you with this piece and a question...any idea what it is? The tag didn't reveal its purpose and I am curious! If you have any idea, please tell me!

And stay tuned...I found a little something else while shopping that I am sharing next time!

    1. I think you may be right! I just noticed the cutout for the roof line.

  2. Agreed--a cupola for a smallish roof, maybe a gazebo or shed or snall building? Very striking.

  3. Debbie, I always love to tag along on these antique shopping excursions. The last object is a barn cupola. There are a lot of these for sale at Round Top each show. Happy Sunday!

  4. Yes probably a cupola! Those gray candele holders are right up my alley! I have leftover gray chalk paint from a project and I see those shapes of candle holders all the time in thrift stores. Thanks!

  5. A most enjoyable armchair antique shopping trip! Thanks for taking us with you!

  6. Debbie,
    Thank you for letting me 'tag' along on your Winter Antique Shopping Trip!
    Actually, I have a Gift Certificate for our local Antique Shoppe from Christmas yet to use.
    Your mystery piece is a Cupola.
    Loved all the ironstone pieces!

  7. I loved going antiquing with you! Thanks for letting me tag along. You found some fantastic items. I love the little family of sheep as well as the rusty can succulent wreath. And the first tureen that you show is gorgeous. I've never seen one of those little tin cupolas so I got a little education along with all the eye candy!


Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to comment! I appreciate my wonderful readers!... Debbie
