Remnants of the Past…Part 2

Hi everyone! I wanted to share a few more pictures of Remnants of the PastJudy Watkins, family, staff and vendors did a spectacular job.  You can see more images on her blog.  I had so many pictures that I had to split the post in two. I was privileged to get in before the event started and thousands  of people showed up. This is a view from the outside looking down one of the isle.

You can see Part 1 here of the inside.

I have linked a lot of great vendors here today. You may want to book mark and save these.

This vignette was styled by Atelier de Campagne.These guys have amazing style and stunning, one-of-a-kind European finds. You can visit them on their blog, and on Facebook.

I love old sign’s and wish I didn’t pass this up.

I was so busy taking picture that I forgot to get this. Trinidad do you still have it???

This vignette reminds me of Italy. When we were kids we would go to the Mercato in the morning, they mostly sell food but, some sold goods..  We love Europe and hope to someday return and  take our children there to meet the rest of my  family and visit my dad.

 Baskets are another favorite of mine. I especially love the ones with old letters and  numbers on them. I should have grabbed this one  because it has the initial L+D on it, perfect for my boys,  Luke and Dustin.

 Last but, not least I finally got the opportunity to  meet Brooke & Steve Giannetti authors of Patina Style.  My new favorite design book. I ordered their book month’s ago.. .They also have a creative blog, which everyone knows about called Velvet & Linen. Their blog was one of the many blogs I first started to follow and I continue to follow. They were so gracious and kind.
