Antiques in New York City

I seem to have a writers block lately…can’t thing of what to blog about! So, I looked into one of my folders and realized I have not shown all the pictures I took at the antique shops in Brooklyn. So…here are some shots I took of things that caught my eye. Since the invention of digital cameras, I take pictures of any and everything. Sometimes later I wonder why something caught my eye!

I love these oak file cabinets!

A beautiful hall tree…I still haven’t bought one! Seems like all I do is photograph them. LOL

Oil paintings and art work…..

I’m not sure why I took this shot…I think it was the top of this little table that I liked.

That stained glass is gorgeous, but I don't want it because then I'd have something else to pack!

Hi Diane

I loved these photos! Since I live in Brooklyn I must take a trip over to Atlantic Ave soon and visit those antique stores!
I'm pretty sure sure that I wouldn't be able to afford one thing in them but it's still fun to look. :-)

I hope you find the hall tree of your dreams soon!

Hugs, Pat

Your bird cage shot reminded me of my Gramma, she always had a little canary. My cousin Jill and I used to "Peep-peep" at it all the time. ~ Robyn

I probably would have taken pictures of all that stuff, too, Diane ... I think the birdcage is my favorite ... and the flamingo.
