Sunday was a most beautiful day for us to enjoy shopping at the
Elephant's Trunk Flea Market in New Milford, CT ~
The weather was PERFECT...
the crowds were great and there were a ton of vendors,
...so I spared you the repetitive shots of booth-after-booth
and instead tried to capture the big picture for you in these below:
below are snaps of my plunder from the flea,
and from Linda's shop (see previous posting) ~
|black mid 1800's highchair with painted design, maple child's potty chair and a sweet oxblood red shelf that was a gift from my friend Joey Smith who was vending at the flea!|
Thanks again so much Joey, was a delight seeing you again!
|tattered silk lined sewing basket, and red/cream overshot coverlet runner (from Linda's shop)|
|heavy wooden scoop (Linda's shop), small pewter pitcher and another lidded sewing basket from the flea mkt.|
|super-cool & big stenciled & feather stuffed sofa pillow ~ love the old letters/type|
|little Autumn trinket box made by Stacy Bear ~ |
(she's sitting on a paper mache pinecone)
... bought this at the Honeyspot Antiques Mall in Stratford, CT)
|small Oxblood red painted & grubbed hanging key basket (from Linda's shop)|
All in all, it was a wonderful trip home to CT ~
perfect weather the whole time I was there.
...visiting my family, relaxing and just taking a break
from my hectic schedule is what seriously refuels me ~
and I now feel refreshed and recharged
to start another round of creative work & designing for you!
The drive home yesterday was wonderful,
( being Columbus day there wasn't alot of traffic on the roads )
....I stopped in PA for lunch,
then zipped down I - 81 heading for
H O M E
(what a wonderful word...)
so here I am!
