~ lauritzen gardens antique show 2012

It's my favorite time of year! The Lauritzen Gardens Antique and Garden Show is a highlight for me each fall and you can rest assured this year was another great success. So many beautiful things to see ~ I hope you are in the mood for shopping. Funny, when I'm home, going through the photos, I notice new things and realize I'm still shopping!
Let's take a tour shall we?

Always love to see Trace - he's just about the nicest guy ever and always brings a whole lot of gorgeousness... 
Prettiest pair of Ginger jars I've ever seen...

Spectacular paintings...



A handsome pair of consoles...



Rumi Antiques


I thought this was one of the most beautiful selection of antiques I've ever seen. Seriously, one gorgeous piece after another...





Thomas Jayne on Shop the Show tour







Thomas Fortner Antiques
(901) 452-3207

Thomas Fortner has the cutest southern accent in the whole wide world. And he can definitely hook you up with some charming antiques...






Janice Paull

Traveling all the way from Portugal, Janice has the most spectacular collection of English Ironstone around. This gal knows her stuff...



I seem to take multiple photos of the pieces I really want. That orange piece is SO stunning... and I do want it.




Anthony Scornavacco


I think I've bought something from Tony for the last few years... Always love to see what he brings, always impressed!





 Katherine Walker Griffith Antiques

A wonderful place to start a collection of transferware...

or charming pitchers...



Jayne Thompson Antiques

Elegant pieces abound at the Jayne Thompson booth... always.






This pair of sconces (only one shown here) was one of my favorite things at the show...





This is just the beginning friends... much more to come this week!

So many great item! Up until this week I was hard pressed to ever spot a cow painting, now I have seen 3 in the last week! I hope you took a moving truck with you to load some of those goodies!

I cannot believe this show! When we go antiquing which is rare these days as the house is pretty much full, usually one or two dealers stick out, not at this one! One after another, after another! Thank you for sharing talented dealers with such beautiful things!

Thank you for sharing! I considered going to the show this weekend, then talked myself out of it. Now I am kicking myself! Next year for sure!
