I can't believe my time here in New England is coming to a close. Lillie and I have had such a wonderful time here. It has not been necessarily very relaxing because it has been quite crazy and we have been so incredibly busy, but it has been oh so much fun. My last post, I shared one of Lillie's favorite things to do up here (going to the farm). This post is about one of my favorite things - antiquing! We have had so much fun hunting for things for Jamie's new house and my parent's future house (and I have have even found several things too, although I am not sure how we are going to fit them in our car to get back to Virginia). Along with several of our usual haunts, we visited a few new places as well. One of these places, White Home Collection in Wilton, I think I went to four times! They had so many gorgeous items and such great prices.
For years now, I have been wanting to go to downtown Peterborough, and visit two of the shops they have, Bowerbird and Friends and The Red Chair. Well, we finally decided to drive over there and wow, I am so glad we did! Both shops were incredible, but I completely fell in love with The Red Chair! It is exactly my style! They still have me drooling. I seriously love every single piece they had in there. I have been dreaming about several of them ever since we left. Here are a few of my favorites:
I think Jamie is going to go back and get this mirror for above the mantle in her great room
I love the mix of the extremely rustic coffee table against the ultra elegant sofa
This mirror was incredible and huge! I want it so badly!
This may be one of my all-time favorite pieces! The store owner got it in France and it is from either the 17th or 18th century (she told us but once we got home we couldn't remember).
I love the touch of blue!
It is not a great shot of it, but this farmhouse table was gorgeous!
Oh, how I would love to work at this desk!
Jason was supposed to be in charge of watching Lillie. When I found them they had wandered into a rug shop and Lillie was snuggled up in the middle of one of them. There was a sign nearby that clearly stated to please keep off the rugs. I was mortified and had to very sheepishly pull her off (although I quickly snapped a picture first - haha)!
I will share some of our finds with you all once they are all in their places. For now, I will give you a preview of our photo shoot the other night with the vintage 1920's truck. As soon as I finish editing them, I will share the rest of them. You can see one other one shot I took (see the header) if you visit The Penny Candy Blog, which is a brand-new blog started by one of my sisters, Jamie. She is the one who designs our clutches and most of our wedding items. I helped her design it and then today she wrote her first post! As you can tell from her blog, and from reading my brother's blog, Small Talk, they are the writers in the family. I am a more visual person so I tend to write really quickly and not put as much thought into the writing as I do the photos, but they are both wonderful writers and therefore their blogs are a much more entertaining read than mine.
