We talked about the thrill of the hunt previously.
The thrill of seeing the item, enjoying it’s beauty, it’s character, it’s flaws.
Well I experienced another thrill of the hunt this week. Where was the hunt?
At a large antique mall in Strasburg, Virginia.
Mary Alice took me to this wonderful antique mall that was about an hour away from her home.
This was actually a short trip for us, when we are used to traveling up to 2 1/2 hours to reach
Here is one of the pretty booths of the antique mall in Strasburg.
There were so many amazing quilts in this mall.
I purchased two items in that mall and this is one of them.
She’s a beauty that measures about 10 inches tall.
The tag described the tureen as having a rope design.
This is a fairly new sugar bowl that I purchased from Mary Alice’s shop.
I love the wheat pattern.
I have had these topiaries that I purchased from HomeGoods years ago and I decided to lose the
containers they were in and place the topiaries in the ironstone sugar bowls.
I gathered a few more pieces of ironstone to create the new kitchen vignette such as this
antique French ironstone stockpot in which I was told was centuries old. I bought this
piece when I was in France.
An ironstone creamer that I purchased on a trip last month while antiquing with Mary Alice
and Yvonne (StoneGable).
Brought my ironstone mortar and pestle from the great room into the kitchen.
I left the pretty grain sack star made Ann (On Sutton Place) in it for added texture and color.
My vintage scale . . . another France trip purchase.
The vintage breadbox remained on the counter.
I added a vintage monogrammed tea towel that was a birthday gift from a friend.
Love my new kitchen vignette. I think it will stay like this for a while . . . or not.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone! . . . and for most of you, enjoy your the first 3-day weekend
of the year!
