LIFE AT THE COTTAGE

Liberty Revisited



The Yankee and I have returned home from Cameron, NC, where we just finished another show.  I thought I would share a few more of the fabulous finds featured at the Liberty Antiques Festival–from last weekend–before I launch into the more recent event.


One of the most prevalent colors I spotted on items at Liberty was aqua–in many variations.

If you remember, that was the color I saw most frequently at the Metrolina Big Classic.

Take a look at my last post, and you'll also see it in a number of different applications at this show.


I thought it looked simply fabulous on the plant stands above, on the adorable apron on the left...


and this cute vintage hat.

The last two pics above are from one of my very favorite booths at the Liberty show.

 

Deborah and Jeanne created such a wonderful space–absolutely brimming with girly items.  Hmmm. I'll bet that was one of the reasons it was one of my favorites!

 

Not only did they sell wonderful vintage pieces–like the aprons and hats–but their wares were displayed in such cute vignettes.

Don't you think the mannequins are just terrific?!


Their space was a total delight for the senses.

There was more incredible eye candy to see than I had time to take in. The music playing in the background was gloriously soothing.  There were sensational Yankee Candles perfuming the air, and a multitude of vintage tactile surfaces to embrace–jewelry, hats, linens, aprons, scarves, and beautiful decorative items for the home.

After days spent in the sweltering heat–in the middle of a pasture–these ladies knew exactly what this lady needed to make her smile.

 

I know where I'll be taking my breaks during the fall show!




I think I'll share some of my favorites from the Liberty show at Mary's for Mosaic Monday.


And, there is plenty of blue to share at Smiling Sally for


 and splashes of red to share at Work of the Poet for Ruby Tuesday.

  22. Liz, thanks for dropping by! I wish I could take credit for the book wreath...alternatively, I get to introduce you to one of my favorite bloggers. Linsday! Here's the link to her site and the directions for it. http://livingwithlindsay.com/2009/11/librarians-please-avert-your-eyes.html
    I've already started working on another one for either my daughter's room or ours...we have bookcases in every room, books on the floor, overflowing from the bookcases, in the crawlspace...and it was still hard to find a book to use! I'm going by my favorite used bookstore tomorrow to show it off! She's the one who gave me the original book to use.
