Were you wondering what I bought at the Elephant’s Trunk last Sunday?  (As requested) Here are some of the things that I brought home from my last two trips to the flea market  ❤

When I saw this chair it was love at first site! I adore the shape of the arms and the center back spindle. I am also quite smitten with the colonial revival era painting that was added to this early 19th century chair.

Two more of my finds from 8/30. An amazing early transferware bowl, which just happens to match one of my dinner plates, and a small mid-19th century wool embroidered sampler.

This tiny sampler is later than most of the samplers in my collection AND it needs to be reframed, but it has some of my favorite colors and it was only $15 !!!

One of this Sunday's chairs. This one is a reproduction Windsor chair from Martin's Chairs in PA. I already owned one of his comb back windsors, so this is a nice companion piece and a nice sturdy chair for visitors who get nervous about sitting in my tiny antique chairs :)

Late 19th century folk art scenery panel. Another love at first sight item <3 There is just something about the shape, the colors (a great early green and lots of lavender sky) and the soft mural like quality that I could not pass by.

At the moment the panel is hanging above the mantle in our bedroom, where it is a perfect fit.
