Back from Maine for a couple of days and a Cartier Corkscrew

Well, it has been an eventful morning already. We got back from Maine last night, and the landscapers are busy digging holes and filling them with plants. Of course, the sudden deluge of rain has slowed the progress a bit, but they keep working!

On our way home yesterday, the lovely and I finally made it to this antique store that has been closed every time we have driven by for two-years…and, alas… it is not the treasure trove of corkscrews that I had hoped it was. They did have three corkscrews; all roundlets (one in sterling) but all over priced.

There was a nice surprise that I found online however. And, the deal is already done–after negotiating briefly this morning. This may go into the lovely’s collection, as it is a cartier corkscrew in the original box.
