Postscript

One additional stop I made on Loi's recommendation while reacquainting myself with my old home town (I went to school and worked in DC, and met Mr. H there!)  was at Oliver Dunn ·  Moss & Co ·  Catherine Roberts - three shops in one, over two levels and in the garden of a lovely, old brick building in Georgetown. The store is a great mix of new, vintage and antique furniture and accessories.






The small garden is absolutely filled with beautiful topiary, planters and vintage garden furniture.




Here a mirror is propped up on the table - a feature I would love to try in a courtyard garden.






Although I was coveting several of the lovely myrtle standards I was worried about their spending a lot of time in the car, so instead I indulged my love of vintage glassware and brought home a set of 8 of these festive goblets.

  1. Gorgeous Phyllis. The vintage goblets are such a treat, good for you! Have you caught your breath yet? You had such a whirlwind of a trip, but I suppose connecting with good people that bring joy and inspire always seem to invigorate! Have a great weekend. Brenda.

  3. I love going to places like this. Only a really gifted person can do visual display as beautiful as this. I mean to simply make "anything" a treasure. It's wonderful. My daughter & I stopped in at an estate sale yesterday and came away with a huge, & I mean really large, bowl & pitcher. She was thrilled! $30.00 A true find.
