On our trip to the city we had such a great time browsing all the fun shops on
did you know that just outside of Amarillo is a town called
Adrian that is the halfway point on the famous Rt. 66?
1147 miles each way between Chicago and L.A.
The Midpoint Cafe has the most delicious ugly crust pies...
(we didn't go there but I just wanted to tell you about it)
no...we were on a mission...to buy some cool stuff and have a delicious Golden Light Burger and ice cold beer lunch...and as often happens with me when I'm on a mission...I got distracted and made a purchase that I had not intended but I guess you could say the luck of the Irish was upon us!
At the Maryland House Antiques they did not have a brass bar cart but they did have
several book sets and just in from an estate sale....
this most lovely thing that would have haunted me forever if I had walked away from it
---I even learned a thing or two about it and wanted to share that with you
below are examples of Wardian Cases via google
this is a vintage glass aquarium via pinterest
I'm not sure how you feel about Martha Stewart but the above link is a "how to"
and here...is ours!
it is very rough and has a tiny crack in the glass on one side
I won't do the rock, the charcoal and the soil because I will change/move it too much
but when you do this it creates its own little rain forest
I'm no expert so I don't know if this is old or not..but it is certainly very used!
I love the patina!
Martha's friend and Dr. Ward suggest a specimen plant
my 4 year old poinsettia that I rescued from the grocery store has grown too big!
so I decided to put in some orchids and ferns in blue vases
I will change this and move it no telling how many times
I also added a blue Madonna chalk ware statue
If I were her I'd like to live here
this is how it is for today
are you wondering if we bought what we went to buy?
yes...we did...but that will be for another day!
