A Gathering of Friends...


Last week I had such a fun day!  I had the pleasure of meeting Suzanne from Privet and Holly !  I love her wonderful blog and had missed meeting her at the Junk Bonanza blog party.  We planned a day to meet at the Bachman's Spring Ideas House and the Gathering of Friends Antique Sale, which was there at the same time!
Suzanne is as sweet and friendly as I knew she would be, and we had the BEST day touring the house, having lunch, and going through the sale twice!  I also ran into sweet Deb of Garage Sale Gal and finally met Lanette of  Cottage Elements !


The sale has 15 great dealers...lots of furniture...


wonderful garden goodies...


great junk and salvage...












Would you like to see the goodies I bought?  This lovely long woven table runner caught my eye~ it has redwork embroidery of apple blossoms and dianthus...




this golden yellow tea towel is appliqued with a charming daffodil...


Old crocheted pillowcase edging was a fun find...


as were these vintage French pastry bags... beignets, anyone?



I loved this old chippy coffee can,


 little alarm clock and drawer...


but my favorite find was this beautiful old cotton nightgown with crocheted top...so lovely...





It was such a wonderful day...I can't wait to do it again, Suzanne!


The Bachman's Spring Ideas House was fabulous, too!  I'm getting ready to start my posts about it soon!  LOTS of great ideas there this time!

Until next time...
Linda

  23. You found some great little treasures, and what a great opportunity to meet other women who blog. That would be so fun!
    I love the stuff that was available for sale, do you know that I have never seen a turquoise jar in Canada yet and I have heard others say the same. I found one in the USA last year.
    Of all your finds, I love the nightgown and the alarm clock best!
    Hugs, Cindy
