OK, so it has only been spring "officially" for a few weeks now. But, had you been with me at the antiques and collectibles show this past week, you would have agreed it felt more like the middle of summer!
Can you say HOT?!
The Yankee and I chose to be outside for this show. After all, nice weather–following a cold, snowy winter–motivates people to leave their nests to soak up the sun.
And, what better way to spend the
day(s) than taking in all the lovely sights in a fun place like this?
Vintage linens just happen to be some of my favorite things to collect. So, naturally, I had to peruse the gorgeous assortment in Zena's booth.
Guess which precious little pixie I thought of when I spied this lovely pink pretty among Zena's linens?
And, as if all those incredible linens weren't temptation enough...
all that beautiful...
ironstone and transferware...
was almost more than I could bear. I found myself calculating how many pieces more I needed to sell, before I could shop at her booth. ; )
She also had a wonderful assortment of Florentine trays...
as well as, numerous other lovelies that desperately wanted to come home with me.
There were gorgeous vintage gowns all over the place.
Should I ever have the pleasure of attending the Silver Bella–one of the other things on my want-to-do list–I would love to don a gown like one of these beauties.
By the way, the colors of those gowns, just happen to be the "hot" colors for the season. I saw those two colors–in varying hues–everywhere and on virtually everything...
from clothing, to upholstery, to furniture and accessories.
And, I would have to say that Rory and Lee Ann's booth took the prize for that particular color combination.
This heart-shaped chair–part of their display–was just the sweetest thing.
But, by far–to me–these luxurious fur pillows were the most delightful items in their booth. Can you just imagine diving into a bed filled with these?
Be sure to visit Rory and Lee Ann at The Greentiques Solution and The French Maid's Place. And, tell them you came by way of Liz at the Brambleberry Cottage.
Want to see more treasures from the show? Then, come back tomorrow for round two. I'm dying to tease you some more with all the luscious eye candy I found.
These are perfect vintage thingies to show off for
