At Home with White - 2014

This past weekend I was so fortunate to spend a lovely morning at the Wrentham Country Store's annual At Home with White Event.  It was better than ever!  My first visits were in 2011 and 2012, and I was so happy to return this year.  Sandi and all the shop girls did an amazing job in that gorgeous white tent.  I'll let you take a peek around...
















(that rusty stool came home with me!)

One of the highlights of the day was meeting Kris from Junk Chic Cottage.  She and her hubby Terry came all the way from Chicago!  Kris was such a joy to meet!  She had a warm, bubbly personality, just as you would expect from her friendly blog.  Terry was such a good sport, taking lots of photos with all our cameras and helping Kris score some treasures.  She and Terry arrived early in the morning on Saturday, and from what we hear - it was a mob scene!  By the time Michelle and I arrived around 10:30am, the place was hopping and the lines were long.  Way to go WCS shop girls!

Here's a photos of us bloggers.  It's hard to believe that Michelle, Sandi and I all met at this very same spot just 3 years ago!

We spent so much more time chatting than shopping (shame on us), and I was a bad blogger by not getting any indoor shots or pictures of the gorgeous porch.  I was too busy ooohing and aahing over everything!
Michelle did get a picture with her camera as we visited inside with sweet Karen.  Karen used to blog at Shabby Moment in Time, but she hasn't found the 'time' for that these days.  :)

Ladies, it was a joy to spend that morning with you - laughing, hugging and talking about sour cream in freezers and such (funny story Kris!).  We advised Kris and Terry to check out Concord, MA on Sunday and I'm sure Kris will fill you in on that visit, especially since she stopped in at the wonderful Nesting store.

My sweet sister Michelle lives nearby and she joined us, too, and even scored a cute Victorian chair.  It was fun shopping with you sis!  (darn, wish we got a photo together)

So...wondering what I brought home?  3 fabulous treasures!
This rusty stool and this chippy old box...

Look closely at their fabulous patinas....sigh....



I also nabbed these vintage math flash cards.  Thought I'd make a vignette on the stool using the flash cards and some $1 baker's twine I found at Target recently:


Well ladies, it was a wonderful time to be had at the event - all those whites never disappoint.  Oh and Jan from Todd Farm, if you're reading this it was so nice to see you!  You ran off and we never got to chat more with you.  You looked amazing and we hope you scored some treasures.

I'm joining in at these great parties this week:

Good Morning!
Wow, how lucky did we get with the weather for the show! Thank goodness we didn't get the snow a few days earlier! Your photos are great Susan and I LOVE the treasures you got (kicking myself over that box)! It was great to see you and hope to see you again very soon when I have more time to visit!

It looks like it was a beautiful day, Susan! Love all the displays in the pictures you've shared. You came home with some great pieces. Love that little stool. We have the Springfield Extravaganza coming up here in May. I didn't go last year, but think I might just go this year.

Sorry I missed it this year - I well remember being there a few years ago when you and PML came down for first the time. I have been down a few times, but the older I get the longer that 1.5 hr drive seems :-) Will I see you guys at the Vintage Bazaar? that's a LOT closer to me!
