What A Beauty-What A Beast

And I loved them both.  OK, I will buy you.  I take a look-see at her price...sorry sister, at about $1,500 we must part ways.

Met this beauty at Brimfield Antiques Fair, MA.  Yeah I know I should have posted these fantastic pictures already but just to darn busy lately.  Also my mom is in town.

Now meet the beast.  Oh, he was part of a pair from a manor in France.  This mean old guard dog and his sidekick were chained to the front entrance of their grand home.  I was very tempted to chain them up to my humble abode.  Grrrr!

As you know, I am always on the look out for garden urns.  

I really enjoyed this vendor and all of his garden statues.

Ceiling light that I was considering.  Looking for something like this.

This is another beauty.  This vintage lamp stopped me in my tracks with its beautiful color.  Some other bloggers also posted about this lamp too!  I was over enjoying goodbonesgreatpieces blog and they also thought this lamp was fabulous!  We all think alike!

This vendor from Georgia had a great furniture selection.

This ottoman was so adorable with its metal legs!

Some vendors really had it together with a great presentation.

I loved these nautical lights.

Row after row of antiques.  We walked for hours and I left with nothing.  I was really looking for larger pieces for my home such as a mirror.  I am glad that I was able to restrain myself from buying little things.  I highly recommend this antique fair.  Did you go?  Do you wish you went?  I am going back next time.  I think they have another in June and September.

I totally want to go! Seriously, I just can't find a good antique vendor I like in Chicago. Bums me out. Love the crystal ceiling light...reminds me of one my parents had. Wish I kept it :(

Ohhh Brimfield- How I miss you. Looks like you had a great time. Sometimes just seeing what the fair is all about helps you to know what to look for next time. Have you ever been to the Farmington Antiques Weekend in Farmington CT. It is one of the best I have ever been to. Thanks for the pics. maybe I will back it back some time.

You know what... that shows you know what what you want not buying anything that didn't just make you swoon. I'm impressed. I think I would have bought things then got home and said... Now what?
Have a pretty day!
