The neighborhood stoop sales were especially good this past weekend. We barely made it to Ada’s school festival because we kept returning to the estate sale of a former set designer from New Orleans. The sale was full of vintage Christmas ornaments, beads and glassware. I found these stirrers for $.50. The beaker is from a different sale and has pretty numbers etched into the glass. It set us back $1. How I love a good stoop sale! We have been collecting nicer pieces for our “bar” (a shelf in the kitchen at the moment). Chris likes to mix up a cocktail in one of his grandparents’ tumblers when we watch Mad Men. (And he has been making me a virgin ginger beer version). Everything tastes better when it is sipped out of a fancy glass.
