Still Walking Through Brimfield or Part Two

Of course...I spied these purple bottles straight away!

There was so much to see at Brimfield and just one day this time.
My friend Carole of Maynard Greenhouse was there
 and visited different fields than we did.
She took some fabulous photos with her iphone. 
 Check out what she saw (and what I missed) HERE.

Snow White and the seven dwarfs were there too!

I should have bought this blue straw hat
 with its creamy white petals.

Here are more random pics of what caught my eye.

  I know...weird. I mean unusual. many lovely linens.
Too bad I don't sew. :(

Let them eat cake.

yo yo.

A stunning display of the Red, White and Blue.

This is John Bruno...aka "The Professor" 
of the PBS TV show Market Warriors.
He was being filmed "professing" to these two lovely ladies.
Have you ever seen the show?
I have not...but it looks interesting.
 Actually, anything at Brim is interesting! :)

And once again, I was smitten with the gorgeous textiles
 in the booth of Wendy Lewis of The Textile Trunk.

so, so pretty.

Well, our day at Brimfield was fun...
...but the fun didn't stop there.
Tomorrow I will share some photos of things we saw 
at Deanna's shop Gather in Ivoryton.

...and then we will visit Taken For Granite in Stony Creek.

My time here with Dad has been relaxing and allowed for lots of blog time!
He is all settled in and loves seeing his Florida friends again...
...pretty soon the bocce season resumes! :)

Hope your weekend has been full of fun!

What am I grateful for today?
...a delicious spinach feta omelet, a Sunday nap and time with Dad.

Hi Laura, it has been a while since I have been able to visit!
Loved to see your take on Brim! How I wish I could have taken in all that loveliness at The Textile Trunk of Wendy Lewis...gorgeous! I would have been in big trouble, I am a textile junkie! Thank you for this great tour of Brim! Enjoy this very special time with your Dad. N.xo

Okay so I TOTALLY want the Antique Drawer Pulls and some of those Metal Storage Containers with the Wonderloaf Style Graphics on the Front! *Winks* There would have been far too much that I would have thought I couldn't Live without there... but its still on my Bucket List to go one day.

Thanks for taking us along Virtually... Dawn... The Bohemian

Hope you had an awesome time.

WOW! I can't get over all the lovely fabric and textiles. I would have been in "hog heaven". I am also smitten with that white shelf and those copper and metal tags.

I just saw a commercial for Market Warriors which on PBS tomorrow evening, I think I'll watch it. Thanks so much for sharing all of your lovely photos for those of us who live vicariously through your trips! HAH

What great pics! Would love to see all that in person, but am a little too far away. Beautiful textiles, lovely bottles (am a collector), and great metal pieces.
Thanks for sharing.

Blessings, Nancy

Great photos! I Love those drawer pulls and the linens. I never quite know what to do with them though. Thanks for showing us what you saw!

Vickie @ Ranger 911 said...

I do sew and would love to find a fabric outlet with vintage fabrics like you've shown us. I'd have pillows everywhere!

The mannequins are quite a sight!

Shuttle, Hook and Needle said...

I would have loved to been in the booth with all the lovely linens!!!
The mannequins - what a hoot!

What I wouldn't give to visit this amazing place! Someday!!!


Dori @ Bell Jar Vintage said...

Be still my heart! I've never witnessed so many treasures in one location! But I am much richer for it. :)
My husband is probably very thankful, too!

Thank you for sharing with us!
