It couldn't have been a prettier weekend at the Brimfield markets... ...although the wind on Saturday morning threatened many tents and display stands... ...by the afternoon, all was calm. It was the perfect temperature for treasure hunting...not too hot and not too cold!
Paula and I had a relaxing time...leisurely poking around the 4 fields we visited on Saturday.
For those of you who have never been to Brimfield....there are over 5,000 dealers in 21 different shows...or fields. The shows begin on Tuesday and continue through Sunday.
It can be overwhelming at times and it is impossible to see it all... ...but we have our routine down and enjoyed every minute of our treasure hunt!
This show has something for everyone. I took a few pictures of the booths we seemed to spend a lot of time at...
I will show you some of the things that came home with me tomorrow...
For those of you who are curious about Mr. Flea's reaction to the petticoat chandelier... ...well, you predicted it!
He wasn't amused... The fire inspector (a.k.a. Mr. Flea) laid down the law.... The only place that petticoat is allowed ... is on me!
I hope you had a fun filled and relaxing weekend!
My wonderful Dad is having a birthday Monday so Happy Birthday Daddy! We love you!
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
