Oops! I missed a couple: Part One

I don't know how I missed out on some events prior to Passover. I feel I must go back before I forget entirely. I mean, I DO take a ridiculous amount of photos when I'm out-and-about, ostensibly for my blog. So they should REALLY be for my blog.

So, prior to Easter weekend, I met up with Spring (heavily pregnant at the time), Lars, and Lars' mother Kathy, to go antiquing (or vintaging, which I think should be a new term - and perhaps it already is!). Kathy had come to Glasgow to help out when Spring had her baby. Kathy has her own delightful blog as well, which you should check out:

In any case, we went down Ruthven Lane (just off fashionable Byres Road) and crept in and out a whole maze of antique and vintage shops. It was quite fun.

Look at this foxy fellow in the pink!

Detail of an old fireplace. It was quite rusty, but the tiles were gorgeous!

A wider view of the fireplace.

A fox stole! Look at his sad wee face!

  1. Máiri, how did I miss that stunning fireplace??? Those tiles are fantastic! Thanks for the shout out for my blog. I was thinking of doing a post about our vintaging in Scotland today. :)

  2. Oh, that fireplace mantel is beautiful. I love the foxes--both of them. Looks like something we'll have to do when I come visit!!
