Good Monday morning!
Before getting ready for work, I wanted to share what I found at the Midland Antique Show and Market on Saturday.
This was my first trip to the show. It's HUGE!!
They have a whole section just for "Shabby Chic".
The first piece I saw was this door plate from an old church in Detroit.
I could have turned it sideways, and added some hooks for a coat rack, I know...but I love it just the way it is.
I knew it would fit perfectly in this space.
I LOVE it!
Another vendor had this gigantic bush of Sweet Annie underneath a table. I asked if it was for sale.
She "was" planning to use it in her displays, but decided I could buy it if I wanted it for $5.00.
Choke, cough, $5.00! uummm.....YEAH!!!
I am very, very happy to have this highly allergic bush hanging in my dining room.
There's enough there for all sorts of dried arrangements! L O V I N G IT!!!
Then I happened along another booth that had this garland of Bittersweet illegally decorating pieces of furniture, and all manner of decor in her booth.
Of course, the owner said it's growing all over her property..."of course".
So I asked if I could buy a garland from her....hmmmmmm.....okay....just this one.
I was happy to see one of my favorite vendors from another show I've visited, and purchased treasures from in the past.
She puts together these cute bottles for the season.
I found an old bottle for my window sill that I neglected to photograph for this post.
I also found this gorgeous piece of architecture.
I can only imagine the building it must have come from.
The best part was spending the day with Mr. L. Yup...no gal pals this time. Just me and the mister walking around acres of booths on a sunny Saturday afternoon....life is good.
