Sunday Treasure Hunt
After my marathon day Saturday, I announced to my husband that there was "NO WAY" that I would make it to Alameda Pt. the following day.. my feet and legs were shot, and I was just done in overall. However, I awoke at 6:00 Sunday morning and decided that I couldn't stand to miss yet one more month of my favorite show so I rolled out of bed and was out the door by 7:00 once again!
I have a pretty good vision of how I want my living room to look now.. so I was in pursuit of garden antiques. My first score was a 5' white iron topiary.. absolutely perfect! The seller wanted me to take the matching 4' topiary.. but I had far too many other items on my list. I found a large glass apothecary jar to house my new collection of green mercury glass balls, then at Addison's booth, I bought a few Victorian ornaments, a vintage buckle, vintage crepe paper and more that I can't recall at the moment. A white shabby shelf was a find at $5.00, that will go in my studio. I also found a small white shabby table top display piece with a swivel mirror.. that will be great for product shots, as well as for my show tables. Later on I found the perfect antique urn to go under the topiary.. I'll plant it with a small leaf ivy. I already have a nice ivy plant, so I'll just start a new one from cuttings.
I stopped by the booth of my friend, Kimberlee Edgar and her wonderful Mom. I bought some cool beaded black ribbon, then Kimberlee unloaded some vintage crepe paper on me.. plus lots of fun things she wanted to clear out, I'll share with a few of my local girlie friends :). (Thanks Kimberlee).
I found too much to list.. but those are some of the highlights! That's all for now.. I'll post more pictures soon.
