Another one of my favorite things about living in New England ... the Brimfield Antique Market! The first time I went, I was in such shock I came home empty handed! It was too much, I couldn't wrap my arms around it ... it is amazingly HUGE!! But that was the first time, NOW ... I am prepared and I have a ball every time I go, and generally have a list! I have also figured out my favorite fields and head there first. This summer when my daughter, Erin, was home from college ... we loaded ourselves up and headed out ... in the Denali!! I LOVE this car. Yes, it allows me to cart my children and their friends and all of our dogs anywhere they need to go. Friends even borrow it during graduation ceremonies to load millions of balloons and cart their children to birthday parties! Besides all that, I love to HAUL things!!! She has 135,000 miles and was built in 2002! As as much as I'd like to trade it in ... I can't! We have come to love one another and she proves her worth every day!!
This is the arrival home from Brimfield! The nice young men who sold me the wicker sofa helped me load this and even gave me their bungee cords to tie it down!! Did I mention I am a sucker for wicker???? I think it comes from sitting on my Grandmother's wicker sofa on her porch in Alabama ... I still have that sofa and it makes me smile!
All of these things need a little love and attention ... They are all "under renovation" as we speak ... I will report back with photos of their "coming out" party!!
Happy hunting and picking!!
