It has been a long time since I have posted. My only real reason I stopped is because all I like to post about is when I find new things. I worried if that seemed shallow.
I received nice emails from people missing my posts and honestly when I read blogs it is to see stuff....I love to see what others get. I learn about items I may have not known about, get decorating ideas and it is just fun to share so I have decided I was silly thinking that way.
I went out with a friend on Friday and had so much fun . We went to Sage Farm Antiques 2ND annual cabin fever market. I had picked up a card for it and mentioned it to her and she was happy to take me. *Friends surly are a gift from God!!*
I first found a pestle and mortar for a steal. Yes there is a crack but this is how I was able to grab it with out a second thought. I like its shape and color.
So much to see and what a great turn out they had. I found a candle mold in a box full of different items. I only bought the mold since I do not have one like it.
I followed Lynda into a booth and as she found a wonderful early trivet I spotted this seat . I first thought it was for display but then spotted a tag. I love the early red paint and it is a great size~ Not to big for my table.
I was happy to find another item that the size made it just right for me...I tend to pick items larger than the space I have!
The tag said it was found in Maine and is signed. It was as it was found still quite dirty...I thought it was just gray until I walked out in the sun light and saw the wonderful mustard.
I picked up a pewter ink well and Lynda gave me a feather pen for it before I left her home.
I loved this show and hope to make it back for the next one.
We went to other antique shops and made a day of it. I found this great bottle at a shop and loved it.
I was thinking I would get amber glasses to go with it however I paired it with pewter goblets I own and like the look.
I picked up a candle stick . I love them and feel you , well I, can never have enough!
We stopped at a shop where I scored this reproduction sign for a great price. I love how worn it looks and of course it is not as bright of a red as the photo!
My home is coming together nicely. I am sure you can see how my taste has evolved over the past year. I have been fortunate enough to see so many wonderful homes through my job and of course many on line friends that I understand what look I want and am on the road to it. I sometimes think if only I had more money however the truth is the hunt is the most enjoyable part and so over night wouldn't be the same.
I am off to make my super bowl snacks. I do not really care about football but family time together is the best. Hope you enjoy your super bowl Sunday.
