A new collection is born…..







A few weeks ago while out running errands I popped into Gallery Classic to check out their new shipment of European antiques. Amongst all the wonderful things they shipped back was this vintage wine bottle. It immediately caught my eye because of the unique shape. Most wine bottles are round but this one is oval and is the most wonderful pale blue in color! After moving it from one spot to another it finally came to rest on this table in my living room. However it just needed something else and of course while browsing on eBay one day I found these antique French rosary beads made out of silver and mother of pearl. I was immediately smitten and didn’t wait for the auction to end…I used the Buy It Now feature so they could be mine right away! What can I say? I am love with these beautiful beads and now find myself looking for even more so I guess you could say a new collection is born?!?!?!?!?

                                             Have a wonderful week!

Hi Des, I have quite a collection of antique wine bottles but I have never seen one in blue! It looks wonderful in the vignette with the rosary beads. Love the antlers too.
Hugs, Sherry
