~ here's what I got...

Each year, the Lauritzen Gardens Antique Show helps beautify my home. I can never imagine what treasures I will find, and am always surprised and thrilled with what I bring home.
I have become a regular customer of Zane Moss Antiques. Zane and his lovely wife are an absolute delight. I bought a black box from them last year, and although I promised myself, no more boxes, somehow, I couldn't let this one go...


I'm always on the lookout for antique books. Clark Graves Antiques, a new dealer for our show this year, had plenty to choose from. I added a few more to the shelves ~ little by little...




Thomas Fortner is another regular for me. This year, I found this awesome french brass jardiniere. I can use it in almost every room in my house...


I've been searching for just the right thing for this wall. Previously, there was a very plain and regular print. Now, a super charming Van Gogh-ish painting from Sebasky and Hildreth. I love the colors, love the frame, and especially the crusty quality. I think it's absolutely perfect..



Barley Twist, another new dealer this year, also had something I couldn't live without.

This darling bench with original needlepoint, the most gorgeous wood color, and beautiful carved legs was too beautiful to pass up...


And from The Black Tulip ~ remember the antique shop I visited in Denver? I found this exquisite little dude. I'm so attracted to crusty!


I found several other things I really wanted, but I have to save some room in this house for future shows!

I am not surprised you were not able to pass on that box. I would have fought you for it :-)
Beautiful.

Jan: What a post!!! Your home is so beautiful. Love your taste and your wonderful way of accessorizing what you bring home with what is already waiting...As for those green drippy confit pots, I could just die!!! As for Bill from Barley Twist, I have shared a few events with him and have bought from him as well! He actually has a shop next to my old shop in Hinsdale, Illinois. All and all it is a small world!
I never miss visiting and anticipating your "next move"

I can see why you couldn't pass up that box and it's dated, perfect! Love the painting colors behind it too.
