My Brimfield adventures and spoils in action!
I had the supreme delight of hosting Mademoiselle Mariah, from Quite Continental in Boston last weekend. We had a jam packed weekend of festivities, heading out first and foremost to Brimfield (click here for Mariah's lovely recap and some pictures of moi, in my Brimfield fatigues.) Antiquing is a battle my friends. And I am a 5 star general.
Believe it or not, the weather out west was stunning. Made for a picturesque day of haggling, viewing, and toting goodies home. My wandering eye was caught by a plethora of vintage goods. Colored glass, cast iron, vintage shoes, and the elephant accent table that got away. It was divine. Totally over the top with no place in my living room what-so-ever, but I am still thinking about it and whether it found a happy home. Perhaps it is the Tuft's Jumbo in me?
What did make a happy home with me in Cambridge?
For starters, this so ugly, you can't help but love it bottle opener that bears an uncanny resemblance to my bullmastiff Kiki.
And my dream of dreams has finally come true, I am the proud owner of a lucite bar. I am now fully equipped to be the hostess with the mostess. Below, are some photos of my plastic beauty already installed in the living room (allowing access to cocktails at the speed of light). Thank goodness we found a porter to wheel this bad boy back to the car. I'm sure hijinks's would have otherwise ensued.
Even husband had to concede that this was a purchase well made- and trust me, it takes a lot for him to say that something was a good use of money! I can't wait to put this to further use when we have a larger space and actually hang our poster of the Cotes de Beaune AOC's over it, rather than behind it.
