While in D.C., I was thrilled to have met with my friend and fellow blogger . . .
~ ~ and she so graciously took me to some of her favorite places to shop for antiques.
If you missed Part One of my adventure, you can view it here.
On the second day, we went to places around the town in which she lives.
The first stop was the antique shop where she has a booth.
Rust and Feathers . . . just down the street from Lucketts Store.
It is a wonderful place . .
This is her booth…
So many cute things in her booth!
Here is a collage of items in the shop of some items “for summer” . . .
~ ~ that I took from their website, Rust and Feathers ~ Vintage Redefined.
After making my purchase from her booth, we drove into town to visit a couple of local shops.
It is there that I found more ironstone. Yay!
I did a vignette of the ironstone that I found on my 2 day shopping trip.
This tureen sits on top of a vintage stool that I purchased from her booth.
In a local antiques shop I found 4 matching ironstone plates and bowls. . .
~ ~ it wasn’t until I unpacked everything at home. . .
~ ~ ~ that I discovered that the plates and bowls matches the tureen that sits on top of the little bench.
Oh Happy Day!
This particular vendor used vintage postcards for tags.
Two out of the three tureens were very close to excellent condition.
The third with a few blips here and there…but that just adds to the character right???!!
This chamber pot is quite common; however, I was thrilled to find one with a lid! . . .
~ ~ and this was $8.00 with 20% off !!!
So here is my “loot” . . . I am still giddy over my finds!
Now, the following are snippets of rooms of my friend and fellow blogger’s home . .
~ ~ can you recognized these rooms and vignettes?
I only had my “point and shoot” camera with me . . so at a little disadvantage with taking photos.
Love how she showcased her ironstone on top of the vintage stools!
She told me that her grandmother loved ironstone, and is the one who started her on collecting it.
Many of her grandmother’s pieces are displayed in her home.
Beautiful vignettes of vintage pieces, ironstone and architectural elements are throughout the house.
She has a wonderful talent of showcasing her beautiful collections. . .
~ ~ like this one in her kitchen.
What a wonderful vintage breakfast room . . just swooned over the cabinet in the corner . . .
~ ~ and the vignette on her table ~ ~ and how about that great chandelier?!!
So, have you guessed who I spent 2 days with running the roads from Virginia to Pennsylvania???
Probably so . . .
It is Mary Alice of Chateau Chic! She is on the left.
We were so busy shopping and dining and me swooning over her house . . .
~ ~ that I forgot to take a pic of us!
This is a pic of when Kim and I met Mary Alice for the first time during the Lucketts Spring Market weekend.
I had a wonderful time and I thank Mary Alice for her gracious hospitality. . .
~ ~ and taking me across three states to shop!!!
Have a most wonderful day being with the ones you love and doing what makes you happy!
P.S. A big congratulations to Whitney and John of Drab to Fab Design . . .
~ ~ for winning the 2nd Challenge of Flipping The Block. Their bathroom remodel was genius!
