Gathering of Friends...


Last week, I had the best girls' day out with my friend Suzanne of Privet and Holly !  Suzanne and I met through blogging and have become wonderful friends!  We went to the Gathering of Friends Antique Show and the Bachman's Fall Ideas House (posts coming soon)!  Gathering of Friends is a wonderful sale held in one of Bachman's large greenhouses each spring and fall.  Thought I would share some of the goodies with you...enjoy the eye candy!


















I would have loved to take this cabinet home with me...but it was huge and heavy!



There's so much to see...my post could have been MUCH longer!   The dealers have lots of unusual pieces and style everything wonderfully!  It was the best day!

I am joining Debra for The Marketplace at Common Ground
with etsy goodies...hope you'll stop by!

Until next time...

  13. We DO have fun, each
    and every time we get
    together! I have been so
    blessed by your friendship
    and your talents, which
    inspire me and encourage
    me to dig a little deeper,
    especially with photography.
    Your pics are so lovely, my
    friend--just like you!

    Happy Monday,
    Suzanne

  31. Wow! It sure looks like they have a lot of great stuff there. I've never heard of that sale. I feel like I'm at Bachmans pretty much every week...I wonder if they advertise it and I'm just to blind to see :) What a cute photo of Suzanne. xo
