Hi my friends – I hope you’re having a great day and all of you south of the border are enjoying your Memorial Day long weekend!
This past Saturday, I put aside a few hours to treat myself to some eyecandy at the Christie Antique Show in Dundas – so glad I did!
It was a perfect sunny afternoon, and I was surrounded by hundreds of vendors displaying quality antiques, collectibles and fine art. A few things that caught my eye –
Antique farm equipment – love the rust and chippy red paint on this piece …
colorful antique depression glass….
antique knobs and hardware – I would have luuuved to dump these in a box and take them ALL home! 🙂 …
and old ‘props’ that are perfect for staging painted furniture. I would have picked this cutie up if I hadn’t already bought the exact same one from the ReStore a few months ago!
But the favorite part of my day was browsing the furniture and meeting a few of the wonderful vendors!
Here’s an adorable piece by Pamela at Bluestone Cottage. Pamela has a paint line (chalky, silky and milk paints) that I can’t wait to try!
Lorna at Graham & Brooks displayed salvaged doors, antiques and furniture.
And Mary and Anita from Pepper Pot Place had a beautiful booth showcasing Annie Sloan painted furniture. Don’t you just love the upholstered chairs?!
To end my day, I couldn’t leave the grounds without trying the mini-donuts. True fact: I’m a DONUT MONGER and I have to try donuts wherever I go! All of you in the States may argue that Krispy Kreme or Dunkin’ Donuts is the best, but I’ve tasted them all and nothing beats our Tim Horton’s! 😉
Feel free to leave a comment below… even if you don’t think Tim Horton’s is the very best! 😉 I always love hearing from you!
