Another Open House

Tis the season and I was off to another Open House, this time in Monroe, GA at Hodge Podge Antique Market.   I always find treasure at Hodge Podge and their annual Open House is always a lovely affair.

When you walk through the doors, you are faced with this gorgeous, holiday display.  

Pretty handcrafted soft bracelets of vintage laces and found objects are so unique.

Adorable snowman are made from glass pieces and pretty tinsels.

The main buffet table was pregnant with delicious, homemade goodies.

Primitive decorations are filled with holiday charm.

Love the look of a cottage Christmas.

It wouldn't be Christmas without a handsome St. Nick.

I could live in this space.

Love this copper weather vane, I would hang mercury glass garland from it.

You will find lots of decorative elements to say Happy Holidays at Hodge Podge.

Love this grouping of window candelabras.

Hello, North Pole!!!

Gorgeous tree was filled with pretty ornaments.  This was another festive Open House at Hodge Podge and my visit has become an annual tradition for me.

Of course, the fun of the open houses is not only to see gorgeous displays but to do a little treasure hunting.  Found some interesting treasure and fluffed up my spaces as well.

This sweet flow blue tray has tiny shamrocks on it.  I have never come across flow blue with this theme before.  

Fell into this charming, child's quilt in red and white and it is now in my booth on Church Street at the Buford Queen of Hearts.

Pretty little brown transfer ware pitcher.

 Marvelous find, this vintage Ibrice, double cologne bottle.  Circa 1930s, this is a rare piece and is in my display case at the Buford Queen of Hearts.

Another fantastic find was this hand knotted, silk prayer rug.  Velvety soft and brilliant colors, this is a gorgeous piece for the Oriental rug collector.

Sold quite a few of my Americana holiday pieces so I had to bring in more this weekend.

Brought in a huge decorative piece for an entrance or hall.   

 Delightful faux mink bear and elf are adorable decorative pieces.

Mid Century Santa figurine looks quite happy on the Depression era compote. 

 Great 1940s wool coat with braiding trim around collar and pockets.  Has that great 1940's fitted waist.

Pretty silverleaf Joy to the World sign can be used indoors or out.

Decorating an antique top hat that has seen better days has become a yearly tradition with me.  Love the holiday look to them.

The top hat marries up well with the antique nightgown. 

Found this great, mid century, Leondard silverplate champagne bucket and Art Deco hammered silverplate candlesticks.   Both are perfect for holiday tables.

Marvelous EAPG, Satin Crystal Block Swan Covered Dish.  Made by Challinor Taylor in the 1880’s and most often found in Milk Glass, this is seldom seen in Crystal Satin.  Called the Block Swan because of the block pattern on the lid and the base.  

 My Victorian booth is filled to the brim with antiques for the holidays.  It was a lovely fall weekend for the Open House at Hodge Podge and for treasure hunting.  

Wishing you all a marvelous week. Sea Witch
