Portland Antique Expo!

We went. We shopped. And, six hours later we came home with a full truck load of goodies!! Oh my, my!! So many lovely things for Flourishes!! Among my treasures, a charming old wrought iron garden bench. Wonderfully old Italian chairs. (I think I'll keep those......at least for awhile.) Tables and benches. Vanity tables and dressers. My best find of the day? A bed that matches the style of the waterfall dresser I mentioned in an earlier post....that I still haven't taken a picture of. (I'll get to it.....really, I will!) It's a keeper for sure!

I took lots of pictures of my favorite booths so I'll scatter them throughout my posts this week. Today though, I'm locking myself in my studio so I can put the finishing touches on bears and bunnies and chicks, oh my!! Pinwheels and candy boxes need their finishing touches as well. Perhaps I should lock myself in my studio for two days!!

Warmest Sunday bear hugs, Aleta
