A Whirlwind Week Brimfield + Blogfest2011 Part 1

Good Morning Friends! The last week was literally a whirlwind I feel like it was just yesterday I was picking a winner for our Coulson Macleod giveaway! Well today we get back on track with a 2 part recap of the last week and than back to daily inspirational postings!

Part 1 - Brimfield Antique Market:
As you know I look forward to Brimfield like others look forward to Christmas morning! It is so much fun waking up before the sun comes up to trek out to western Mass and scout for treasures! This year was even more fun as I had 2 of my best friends with me AND there was a fun #Brimfield tweet up hosted by Benjamin Moore, Daily Basics and the fabulous Gretchen Aubuchon!

I immediately fell in love with these chairs. They are not vintage but made such a striking impact with their exaggerated backs and nailhead trim that I could not help but stop and stare!

Brimfield Chandelier
This stunning chandelier wanted to come home with me but I just didn't have a place for it! Though I visualize a feminine bathroom with this hanging over a gorgeous clawfoot tub, almost like raindrops falling from the sky!

This year I was overwhelmed....in the best possible way with all of the linen vendors! It is by far my weakness and every year I fall in love with this New England scene. Someday I will grab it to put in the beach house, that is when I buy the beach house!! The red and turquoise is one of my favorite color combos!

I love the new england linens!

I never know what to do with those vintage tea towels but I always want one anyway.

Looks like you found several great finds at Brimfield! I have to say, I think there are a few Daily Grommet gals who would also love that New England scene!
