A box without hinges, key, or lid
Yet golden treasure inside is hid.
- J.R.R. Tolkien

Browsing through antique stores is a bit like treasure hunting. It's the only time I ever truly "window shop" because the outcomes of my perusal are always unpredictable. Some days I leave empty handed and others I discover a plethora of marvels.
Recently, I wandered into the veritable trove of riches that is Wisteria Antiques and Gardens. The photos I managed to capture (when not otherwise drooling over every precious thing) do not do justice to the charm of this establishment.
Armed only with my iPhone camera and a child-like enthusiasm, I spent a heavenly amount of time meandering through the vintage property. Yet, it was not enough. I must return. There are still wonders to behold and spoils to unearth - other treasures for other days.
In the meantime, I'm participating in Mosaic Monday at Little Red House. Do stop by for some visual treats!
