weekend find

 This past weekend I went to my friend Laurie's Antique and Artisan's Show.....

 and picked up this little beauty......

a beautiful old strawberry tote.

I love how when you decorate with mostly white.....beautiful weathered pieces like this just pop.

I picked up a couple other things too.....and will show you those soon.

Laurie's show was great with lots of wonderful vendors and fantastic vintage and re-purposed junk. She'll be having another show in the fall....and I'll be sure to share the dates with you so you too can check out some great stuff.

  9. I love your strawberry tote with its vignette. They are so fun to use in decorating. I just picked up a berry crate today and am anxious to play with it in my house.

  24. What a wonderful find! How beautiful it looks with the hydrangeas. I'm not sure there is anything more appealing to me than the mixture of warm wood and white.
