Weekend Finds

This weekend I picked up a few things in an attempt to add some sparkle to these dreary winter months that remain before we get our first glimpse of spring. St. Germain Antiques in Mt. Pleasant never disappoints. This little silver bowl will be perfect for lemon wedges. The cut glass ice bucket and tongs is just the right size for a few ice cubes to have out when serving. I love the idea of collecting sparkly bottle stoppers. This is the first in my collection.
I have been looking for a tray like this for a while and was happy to find this one at St. Germain Antiques. The wine decanter and stemless wine glass set came from Stone Soup in downtown Mt. Pleasant.

My friend Sheryl volunteers at the hospital gift shop. A visit there yielded these cute little hand towels.
Hope you all had a good weekend.
Hugs,
Sue

  8. What a successful shopping trip. I have a touch of cabin fever since I've had my foot surgery and can't be out foot loose and fancy free! Maybe in a couple of more weeks I'll be back into wearing shoes instead of this contraption on my foot now!
    I love those towels...I would never think to look in a hospital gift shop for such lovely merchandise.
    Enjoy your treasures!

    Mt Pleasant Michigan so homesick.
    The WCH gift shop is a neat place
    and all run by volunteers.
    We lived on Heritage Court off
    of Crapo Street. The Soaring Eagle
    and CMU keeps that town hopping!
