On a trip to the country this past weekend, we stopped in at one of our favourite antique stores...or should I say, antique barn...it's filled to the brim with creaky, uneven wood floors, a roaring fire complete with antique mantel and brass fire guard. There's no computers or calculators found here, it's like going back in time which is what makes it such a beautiful place to disappear into for an hour. But, luckily for me, they are in the 21st century and took VISA! One of my favourite purchases (and something I've been eyeing for some time but unable to find), was this antique drawer from a printer's desk complete with handle and little handwritten remarks by its previous owners...I love that about a piece...the uniqueness and character and all the history it brings with it.
Of course, we got back into reality when we stopped in at the nearest Tim Horton's for a coffee with all of our antique finds.
