Antiquing Trip Part 2

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 Antiques

Rust and Feathers . . . just down the street from Lucketts Store.

It is a wonderful place . .

Rust and Feathers Antiques

This is her booth…

So many cute things in her booth!

Rust and Feathers Antiques

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.

Ironstone Tureen

This tureen sits on top of a vintage stool that I purchased from her booth.

Ironstone plates and tureen

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!

Ironstone Bowl

This particular vendor used vintage postcards for tags.

Ironstone Tureen

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???!!

Ironstone Chamber Pot

This chamber pot is quite common; however, I was thrilled to find one with a lid! . . .

~ ~ and this was $8.00 with 20% off !!!

Ironstone Vignette

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?

Chateau Chic Dining Room

I only had my “point and shoot” camera with me . . so at a little disadvantage with taking photos.

Chateau Chic Dining Room

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.

Chateau Chic Vignette

Beautiful vignettes of vintage pieces, ironstone and architectural elements are throughout the house.

Vintage Kitchen Vignette-Chateau Chic

She has a wonderful talent of showcasing her beautiful collections. . .

~ ~ like this one in her kitchen.

Vintage Breakfast Room-Chateau Chic

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 . . .

Bloggers night out!

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!

2014 Lucketts Spring Market Weekend, Part One

Happy Monday everyone . . Hope you all had a great weekend . . . We did!!

We drove up to the Washington DC area on Thursday . .

~ ~ as my hubby had a meeting in D.C. on Friday.

So Kim, Mr. Savvy, and I took advantage of a little sightseeing . . .

~ ~ while my hubby had his meeting.

Washington Monument

I believe it was the first day of the re-opening of the Washington Monument.

Kim and I took lots of pictures of the sights . .

Washington DC

And if you follow Kim on Instagram . . you can see what Mr. Savvy was holding in his hand.

After my hubby’s meeting we headed toward Frederick, Maryland . . to Sweet Clover . .

~ ~ however, it was closed as Cassie and company were setting up at Lucketts.

We then headed to the Lucketts area to visit Mary Alice (Chateau Chic) . . .

~ ~ and her lovely space at Rust and Feathers!
