This weekend Amy and I embarked on what must have been the most epic Mother’s Day weekend ever. Both of our moms came from Virginia and joined us on a mother-daughter Brimfield flea market weekend, followed by brunch (and more plant shopping) at the newly opened at Westport, CT. We lucked out and got the most beautiful weather I’ve ever experienced at Brimfield and managed to score some fantastic pieces, despite visiting at the end of the show week. Like always, we thought we’d share some of the fun pieces that came back with us (and some we wish had). I can’t wait to find new homes for all of these oldies-but-goodies. xo, grace and amy

Image above: If I’d had an extra $1200 burning a hole in my pocket, this vintage carousel mirror would have been MINE. — grace

Image above: I WANTED THIS CARNIVAL WHEEL SO BADLY. ARGH. — grace
Image above: My jewelry splurges. The Victorian onyx earrings on the left were a 31st bday present from my mom, and the Victorian watch pin (which I’m turning into a necklace) is on the right.
Image above: Old timey bikes with old timey riders.
Image above: I loved the color of the chipped paint on these garden chairs.
Image above: I wish I’d had an excuse to take this home . . .
Image above: Very heavy — but pretty — metal curtain tie backs (looked, but didn’t buy)
Image above: A plastic bag got stuck to the bottom of our car and melted there. It smelled awful. I had to crawl under and peel it off.
Image above: Southern Lady door knocker. Wish I’d gotten this.
Image above: Amy and her plastic bird have a moment. I had a moment with a championship belt.
