Goodwill Hunting

One thing that I always keep an eye out for when I'm antique shopping is pretty stemwear.  I've  found most of these pieces over the years except for the larger Mikasa glasses.  The black lacquer tray that holds my treasures is also antique, I think I paid $3 for it! It has the most gorgeous Chinese fans painted on it! The director finally opened up his 7 year aged Armenian brandy that he got as a gift for Christmas, so we put it in the decanter for entertaining. I feel so grown up now ;) Here are some glimpses of my dining room. xoxo

Those vintage glasses remind me of Poland. Polish ppl (especially old) have many sets of those kind of glasses :)

What gorgeous glasses-I'm a big fan of vintage pieces, too! Our bar has a quartet of plaid highballs and a matching pitched, and 4 etched sour glasses, and I always feel like a grown up when I see them!
