unpacking a bunch of grapes

Bunches and bunches of vintage alabaster grapes!

I would buy the creams, golds and whites in varying sizes. If you've ever priced these at antique shops you know how ridiculously expensive they can be (luckily we always found good deals.) I told our Dallas movers that their value would lessen if any of the stems were broken.... they were each wrapped like little gifts, and nary a break! This antique oval urn was an Atlanta (Scott show) find! We have a collection of antique urns... iron and marble.

This upstairs window is directly over the front door. To the left of the table is one of the two doors going into the master bedroom, to the right is the south guest room door, and across is the door leading to the attic. Out the window you get a glimpse of our neighbor's 1760's estate. Our property is thought to have once been part of the estate, maybe the overseers property, as our house faces the estate as opposed to the road. Not a bad view, no?!

They are just beautiful Joan. I LOVE the view you have from your window too. I am sorry for not visiting so often. I am still on my SLOW internet connection so peoples comment boxes take 5 minutes to load! I just wanted to thank you for all your lovely words of encouragement over at my place. This move has been made ever so much more sweet by the kindest comments from my bloggy friends. Yay Joan, we're both in our houses now! A-M xx

I just found your blog through Cote de Texas and it's great! I live in NH too (have since I was 3) and in my opinion it is one of the most beautiful states and I have been to quite a few. I look forward to reading your blog.

I inhereted 3 sets of these from my Grandmother. Suddenly my collection seems small. (I think if you have three of something you can call it a collection...may have to check the rulebook on that one,lol)
