Well, you know how it is. My friends and I like to go antiquing and especially to the monthly sale at Matilda's Mouse antiques. The May event was "Through The Garden Gates," appropriately named for the time of year. Here's a taste of the goodies.
This beautiful display was disassembled right after I took this photo. Someone bought the HUGE counter it was sitting on and the absolutely stunning door. You can't tell by this photo, but that door was a One-of-a-Kind. I've never seen anything like it. Glass between spindles which had remnants of kelly green paint. I wish I'd taken a close up. If I was selling these antiques, I'd have such a hard time taking apart the displays. Although, a sale is always a good thing, especially a BIG sale. This happened at the beginning of the three day event. I hope they had a Plan "B".
This beautiful "cage" was very hard to photograph. It also sold first thing which is too bad. I would've grabbed it. What an impact it would've made a big impact in a room. Just lovely.
Nancy posed for me. She really wants that basin, but has no where to put it.
The pealing gate was also a beautiful color.
I have never seen anything like this side board before. Look at the detail on the drawers below!
It's too bad this beautiful lace top was T I N Y!
Isn't this a fun Vegas chandelier from the 1960's?
Can you believe that all I went home with were two blue Ball jars with lids intact?
