Friends! I owe you photos from my kitchen. I ran out of light this weekend to take photos, so I'll take a few before work this week and get them up (hooray for it actually being light in the morning before work!). But in the meantime, I thought I'd share some photos from the antique show we went to this weekend. A couple times a year a huge antique show comes through town and I'm not sure I've ever gone. We thought we'd head over and check it out before we buckled town and painted our little hearts out in the kitchen.
We saw a lot of really great things. And a lot of not so really great things. You know, typical antique show fare :). A quick note about the photos: the lighting in this building was TERRIBLE and I was using my iPhone. So, the pictures aren't the greatest - sorry about that in advance :) With that said, here are some of my favorites from the show:
Love these little ice cream bowls. The sweet light coral color is great for spring and the display had me wanting to throw an ice cream party :).
There were a couple different colors of these tea cups and saucers, but all were lined with gold. LOVE. And want to figure out a way to diy this and still have it be food safe.
And speaking of pretty - this collection of vintage containers was gorgeous. All the colors were so vivid and beautiful. A small grouping with a single flower stem in each would be so cute.
I LOVE this lamp. The white parts were actually a really light blue, and we all know that I've been loving green and blue lately :).
I have a good/bad habit of only buying things that I KNOW I have space for. This is good, because I don't have a lot of un-used things lying around. On the other hand this is bad because I passed up some really awesome things! There are a few things I wish I would've bought this weekend, including:
This super sweet little stool. I'm still kicking myself. I love the color, the shape and the cute floral/shamrock pattern stitched in on top.
This botanical print! It was really sweet and the color was beautiful.
There were so many great trophies - I'm sure I could've found space for one at home.
After all that, though, we did not come home empty handed.
We brought home these fantastic copper cups. They need to be cleaned up a little, but that's easy! I'll make sure to show you the process for cleaning when I get to it :).
The cups have these great rings at the bottom - sort of like plastic cups, except much cooler.
And this sweet little wheat embossing. I am so excited to use them!
Have you picked up any great antiques lately?
