Antique Fest, Part 2 and a Giveaway Opportunity You Won't Want To Miss!

~If you haven't heard yet, Robyn Story Designs is having a Mountain of Giveaways. One lucky winner will have the chance to pick amongst a mountain of fabulous prizes like a shopping spree or 10 cans of Chalk Paint. Yep, you read it right, 10 CANS!!! So be sure and click on the button and go sign up to win!

Now on to more antique fest. Here are some random shots of the whole proceedings!

There were plenty of treasures to be had but I only bought an old white platter and a small crock.

Then there was this. A fellow blogger was in town and spotted this pretty chair in a booth up the street from Jazz and posted on her blog Delusions of Grandeur that it would be perfect for someone like little old me to buy, paint and resell for a good profit. She was half right.

About the buying and painting part. She now sits in my bedroom and will not be sold! At least not anytime soon. I just LOVE this chair! It has a few tiny spots on the upholstery I haven't tried to scrub out yet and I will add some paint to the wood since it has some dings. I'm thinking gray or my favorite ASCP, Louis Blue. Maybe I'll win that giveaway and I can stock up on my supply. Overall though the chair is in great condition and was a score at the price I got her for. 

Thanks Vanna!

Ooohhhh Sares it would look amazing in that Louis blue! I'm so glad you love it too *winks* I love the rose fabric in the bacground of your bedroom!

I never saw that statue of a little girl when I was down there....I think I would've picked her up! Do you know which store she's in? Maybe I'd venture down for her if she isn't a crack smoker price! *winks*

And it's STILL raining!!! Grrrrrrr!!! Vanna

Hi Sares,
Oh, how I wish I could have been there for all that good stuff.

Love your chair. I'm not sure I would change a thing about it.

Well I reckon that chair made up for the lack of purchases Sares, it's gorgeous and I can see why you're hanging on to it.

Had a giggle at the you reckon they'd send 10 cans of chalk paint all the way to Oz if I won! I think I'd have to have it delivered to your that would make you smile wouldn't it.

Well I'm off to bed...catch up again soon.
Warmest hugs,

The chair...perfect for a Queen in Training, yep! By the way, I'm gearing up to have another give away myself in August and write a short story to go with it like I used to. Folks seemed to like my Gnomes Ahoy and Queens in Training and remember that silly game show I wrote and the Enchanted Playhouse?

Now...enough about me, that whole street fair looks so awesome. I think we'll have to make a point to come down to it, Portland or no Portland...your fair would be worth the trip for sure.

Love the pink table...oh...I love it!

So look forward to meeting you.

Have a great week.

I visited your blog today. It is so pretty. I love your HEADER...very unique. I was browsing at the Antique Fest and saw some wonderful finds. I really liked the Girl Statue and the Guitar. My son is learning to play the guitar. Me and my daughters just started a new blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you and seeing all your charming ideas. Hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day.

I'm very intrigued by the stork-like bronze-ish figure under that fragile glass cover, surrounded by pink tickets!!!!! That IS a stork, isn't it?? And those ARE pink tickets, aren't they???? What is the story behind that, would you know?? I would truly love to hear it!! :)
