Hello everyone,
September is the end of Summer and the last week of the Brimfield Antique show.  I go to every show and this the first time it has been a very hot September show! Friday was girls day for us, Robin, Gretchen, Liz and Balcus sp(?) were my partners in crime. We had a mission of finding the perfect treasures to bring back. We had so much fun laughing from the time  we left my house until we got the time we got home. We all search for different things so we were scattered for some of the time but kept meeting up. I wanted to share some of the cool things that I saw this year.

                                              Industrial is always big at this show.
                                                                 So pretty.
                                           Love everything in this photo.
   Nautical. Now that we have a little lake cottage I look at the water decorations.

                                                    Cool industrial lights. In my kitchen I use just the shade on my lights and get the same look as the green ones.
                               Tuesday Don and I went to the show. He met a long lost friend.

 OK this is so important!!!!! If you  are ever lucky enough to go to the show you have got to have a pilgrim sandwich.  It is the most devine sandwich you will ever have.
                                   Brought home some pretty clothes home for the shop.

                                                 I love this dealor's yearly set up
 Inside this tent is the most gorgeous French fabric, I couldn't afford any of it but I can look at the photos. Seriously why are prices so crazy in some booths? I do know that people come from all over the world to shop here.
                                               I wish you could see inside! It's is magical if you love fabric like I do.
                                              Another pretty booth with lots of pink and Florentine.

                            We had no er ...drama about the heat. Oh, hi Gretchen.
                      I really wanted one of these fabulous bins but for $200.00 wasn't going to happen.

                                           I would love a yard full of this gorgeousness!!!!!
 This is Linda. She is an awesome sewer and make the most beautiful bags, pillows, lampshades.............very talented lady. Don't stand still, she'll put a millinery flower on you:)

                         These chairs were funky and comfy. Each slot was painted a different color.
                                                                    Great display
                                           the stool.


                        Love the color and these chairs. so pretty.
 This is a very special booth. Why you ask? Well first of all it is gorgeous! BUT It is an IRISH BOOTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Most of the booths do the French thing but this lovely lady went with her own roots and did Irish and I just love it. Her booth is called By the Olde Garden Gate from Salem NH.
                                       Look at how great its put together. 
 This booth is from Reclaimed Charm and I fell in love all over
 Irish booth again.

                                                            Reclaimed Charm
                                                  More Reclaimed Charm
                              Don waiting for me:) Off to eat a turkey sandwich!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So there is a little part of my shopping day with my friends.( I brought back a bunch of treasures for the shop. )  Love getting together with all of them. Just love them. They are all so different and so  much fun to be around. A great day of friends, shopping, laughing and eating. Now that's livin'!

'Till next time.................................................
Have a beautiful day:)

AND THEY'RE OFF.................................................

Well, it was 'the' day this morning. The day that the girls went back to school and boy were they excited!

 Stella in the back, Fibi and Maci. Poor May got stung near her eye a couple of days ago and Nicole sent a letter to school explaining that she doesn't usually look like this, ha ha Poor little baby.

 This is the first year that they are in the same school so they will be able to see each other in the hall ways.
 Stella picked out this little summery outfit with boots to wear to 5th grade. 5th grade???? I remember cutting the cord on her when she was born. How dare she grow up so quickly!!!!
               The always in style Maci, picked out this pretty dress and pulled it off quite nicely. 1St grade this year. Stop growing!!!!!!
 And last but not least, Fibi picked out a blue fancy bowed dress for her first day of kindergarten. She was so excited!
                     Look at the size of those book bags. And they weigh as much as my purse!
 There is daddy walking them to the bus. Lots of kissing going around this morning. I think we even kissed the bus driver.

                                               And off they go.  Happy and laughing !

Hope you kids are lovin' school this year:)

'Till next time ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
