Summer Pleasures.....

Well, it was certainly a fun day last Sunday at the Washington Antiques Fair with Heather (Pretty Petals) and her friend Stephanie, Karla (Karla's Cottage) and Lori (Faierie Window). Fun was certainly had by ALL! And need I say, FUN shopping.

Here's a few shots of one of the prettier booths at the fair. Love all that WHITE! How summery is that?

Karla and Lori are in the photo above, enjoying the "wares"!
This wicker daybed was to die for. It just screams summer, doesn't it?
Aren't these the prettiest chairs? Love the whole set! It would look great on my porch!

Aren't those plates in the basket divine! YES! They are paper! LOL! I had to get close to see that!
Chandeliers and vanities! Ah-h-h-h, so pretty!

Karla brought the beautiful "birdie" cone below filled with wonderful treasures for me. Just love it Karla.

Heather made the cone above for all of us. Just so beautiful in white and ledger paper. Love the beautiful flower on the front.

I couldn't pass up this tin of buttons for $3. Yes, that included the tin!

I think I love this the most, though. It's a victorian over the bed reading light. Of course hubby will rewire for me. I just love the colors and the beautiful ribbon flower on the front!

Isn't this book darling? Printed in 1897. Can't wait to read "Dotty's" Story!

And last, but not least, I got these great cabinet cards and photos. Just love them. Check out the little girl in the striped socks. So cute!

As usual, I could have spent a ton more money, but as they say, "You Just Can't Have Everything". Can't wait for next month to once again go antiquing at the "Washington Antique Fair"!

Enjoy the rest of your summer!
