Anne’s Fabulous Find 2

screen-shot-2016-10-08-at-9-27-33-amAs many of you who are familiar with my adventures in the Antique Hunters mystery series may already know, I am not always practical. Case in point, this week I been fascinated watching antique epergne centerpieces on eBay. See this stellar example with its cut crystal candleholders. Wouldn’t this make a spectacular centerpiece for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner? Imagine a darkened room with only the candlelights from this epergne glowing?

Alas, I have been forced to downsize from my Chicago Bungalow to a mere apartment above mine and CC’s antique store, Great Aunt Sybil’s Attic. These are too good to pass up. I will consider adding them to my collection.

Anne’s weekly tip: Never be afraid to splurge on yourself. You work hard and deserve it.
