Trip to Kentucky – cute wine bottles and more antique store finds
June 15, 2009 § Leave a comment
I met up with my parents last week in Frankfort, KY. My dad was slated to have a meeting and play golf out there and my mom came along for the ride, and we spent some jolly time together in the small-town state capital. In comparison to where I live, I’d say it’s about the same, just a little bigger and cleaner. It was sad, though – lots of beautiful architecture, mostly closed up due to business shut-downs. Sad. A lot of the buildings and homes dated back to the mid-18th century.
Anyway, mom and I did some antique shopping and ate a lovely lunch in a little wine bar. I was enamored with the bottle labels, continuing my typography obsession, and also found some lovely cheap goods at the antique store.
Some of you probably know that I’m about to start my masters in Opera and Music Theatre. I went through the decorate-everything-with-show-paraphernalia when I was a kid, but I did love these antique opera vinyls. They were $1 each, and such great colors (…and lettering).
