I really don't like blog posts that start with "Sorry I been away from my blog" or "Gee, it's been a long time since I've posted"...but both are true statements for me, so I'm easing back into blogging with a simple post.
Just some random phone pictures from restocking visits to my antique booth so far this summer.
One of my favorite large washbowl style pitchers. An aesthetic design in shades of pink. It sold quickly. On the other hand, the pink planter in the background has been in my booth for over a year.
A display of blue and brown.
Something I always like to see...anywhere...a big bowl of lace full of texture and colors. I'm not sure about paper mache apples.
A bowl of swirly burlap trim, with a sweet little book tucked in the back.
At estate sales, I'm always on the look out for sets of books. Besides being beautiful like this good trimmed set from Thackeray, you can stack them to add some height and variety to displays.
I've had the set of three circa 2000 books by Dickens at my booth forever. I know they aren't as pretty as good trimmed hardcovers, but doesn't anyone read the classics anymore? Oh well, I guess they're good for displaying bookends.
Simple vignette. My favorite things- the marbled paper background harvested from some books that were falling apart and those little white berries in the creamer.
