Spring Comes to Town

With the weather at last warming up in the Delaware valley it seems that spring has finally come to town.


Here April showers bring rain boots and flowers.


Pink cherry blossoms add an extra touch of romance to white columned porches.



Cluster of sunny daffodils brighten somber brick and Victorian woodwork.


Tulips search for the sun through antique wrought iron fences.


And waves of fallen petals drift across sidewalks.


Sweeping weeping cherry tree branches have a lace-like effect against the brick fa├žade behind them.


An elegant window box planter decorated with curly willow branches.


Colorful fish shaped Japanese windsocks known as Koinobori decorate the window boxes.


Bright clusters of tulips almost resemble Easter eggs scattered around the garden.


This lush saucer magnolia looks like a pink cloud complete with a fairy tale turret coming out of the top.


What better place to take in the pleasures of the season than a cozy wicker chair on a tall shady porch?


Then again we’ve always been partial to the well-weathered seat of an old Adirondack chair.

A Cabinet of Vintage Glassware


The vintage glasses and cut crystal in our recent post on setting a bar inspired these shots of some more of our antique and vintage inventory.

 

Unique vintage glassware is among the fastest moving categories in our online shop, the more unusual the better.

 

Like these unusually shaped vintage dessert glasses surrounding the cut glass compote that would be a stylish way to serve an elegant sorbet or a simple ice cream.

 

Hand blown Murano glass goblets and an antique cut crystal decanter fill the top shelf with fun retro vintage glassware and a cut crystal bowl below.

Just a sample of the ever-changing inventory at Knickerbocker Antiques and Vintage.
