Braselton Antique & Spring Festival

A gorgeous weekend in the south and Saturday was perfect for going to the Braselton Antique & Spring Festival.  Brought sweet Gynness with me to help socialize her to be comfortable with crowds and different people. 

We couldn't ask for a better Saturday with gorgous weather and lots of spaces full of antiques, shabby pieces, upcycles furniture, art and crafts and the food midway.

Lots of furniture was up for purchase and at take home prices.  

Decorative elements abound with a myriad of choices.

Crazy about redwork and I have some gorgeous pieces.  Still, they always call to me and the cherubs piece was marvelous.  These were in one of my favorite booths and offered by Mary Anne Payne, a writer, blogger and lover of vintage/retro linens and especially tablecloths.

Look at these brilliant and joyful pieces.  

Mary Anne also creates these color totes from vintage tablecloths.  Joyful colors, you will want them in every color scheme.  You can contact Mary Anne at 404-580-9969 or email her at hellomap@gmail.com to purchase them.  Be sure to tell her that I sent you she knows how you were able to contact her.

This festival is the best kept secret for buying plants and shrubs.  Beautiful and healthy varities at better than nursery prices, I watched people carry armloads full of them to their vehicles.

Gynness loved walking around but when the crowds started to form, she was happier in my Thirty One soft bag.  I put a fleece crate mat in it and she fit inside beautifully and snuggled in.  She liked being able to look out at everything, sniff the good food smells that were wafting everywhere and still be close to mommy.

Braselton Gallery is always filled with beautiful pieces by local artists and this spot is a festival favorite.

 Wicker is still king for summer use and this pretty pair is so inviting.

 I love a container filled with creepy, doll heads.  So many possibilities.

Another eye appealing space, Vintage Redesigned by Jessica Drexler offered lovely pieces for wear or decor.  You can contact Jessica at gray_dove@hotmail.com.

I liked the way she married found objects with vintage plates.

Jessica has a great eye for marrying interesting objects together.

Didn't find anything that I needed to bring home at this years visit, but I did find this great pair of antique cast frames.  I've got enough now to frame family photos in and that is my next project.

Sweet baby is all tuckered out from the day at the fair.  She did so well that I can't wait to take her to another fair.  Blessings to you and those you love.  SeaWitch
