Spent a little time at the Country Living Magazine Fair in Rhinebeck, NY this past weekend. If you are ever able to attend one of these fairs, what fun!
Here is a wand from the The Painted Fern. Glorious paper art! And a little Nicole Bowen Panda...so cute! Fits right in with the kinds of things that I make and do.
On the way back from the fair, we went to one of our favorite antique and collectible stores In Millerton, NY, where I found this wonderful primitive bear. It is 7 1/2 inches tall and has a mohair head.
At another shop I found these early hand painted gnomes. These are probably made in the 30's or 40's but they were made well into the 1960's in Germany as wall ornaments and nursery figures.
The weather has been...fun. Some days warm, someday cold and some days incredibly beautiful. The past few days have been wonderful. It is a pleasure to go antiquing and for rides through the lush green New England summer landscape.
A new week begins. Working on a few things...how about you? Where have you been? How is the early summer treating you?
Until the next time,
enjoy the day!
