I'm here at the lake and I've been cleaning up and getting ready
for family to arrive Memorial Day weekend.
But, as promised...
I wanted to show you a few of the little things that
I brought home with me from Brimfield.
First up is this tiny 19th century ointment pot.
I love the blue writing...
...on both sides!
...also a nice length of blue and white ticking.
A pretty embroidered monogram and crochet pillowcase from
Jackie at Bliss Farm Antiques.
Some reasonably priced wire ware
from a woman who was selling off her collection.
She said the best and most unusual pieces were sold the day before.
Too bad I missed that!
...a tin mustard sign
...two shakers with pewter tops and agitators
...tiny French tart tins
...a European grain sack with the prettiest blue stripe.
...three Gien Pont Aux Choux cream colored dishes.
...an old box of inks
...a tall aqua blue apothecary bottle
...a pale blue French letter with lovely script
...a concrete rabbit to give to my friend Evi for her birthday.
...an old piece of transferware with a lovely blue gray
pattern of ferns and berries
... a pair of bistro chairs
and a few wood spools with old blue paint on the ends.
I guess you could sell me pretty much anything blue!
Hope you have had a good weekend.
The weather here in the Adirondacks
has been sunny and beautiful the last few days.
It's been so very quiet here ...
...but by next weekend everyone will start arriving
and the summer season will begin!
Hopefully the black flies and mosquitoes won't show up too!
Take care, Laura :)
