Our new friend, Vasile, picked up Mark, Catherine and I and drove us not far from Alba Iulia, where we were staying, to Sintimbru, where he works, for lunch at his boss's restaurant.

Rustiq is a traditional restaurant that is filled with Romanian antiques. I'm crazy about anything old, so I had fun taking photos of all the interesting things that were hung or displayed everywhere.

Catherine explained to us that it's traditional to hang plates and cloths on the walls.

The plates were rich in Romanian motifs and the cloths decorated lavishly with embroidery and crochet lace.

This old bench had wood grain painted on. I've always enjoyed seeing this work of art.

Since I'm "getting into" looming and fiber arts, I was especially interested to see the old spinning wheels and fiber making tools.
