Have you ever seen an interesting "thing" at a show site and wondered what you would do with it? I am so inspired by the bloggers and merchants I see online. One Kings Lane is an online merchant with great staging ideas. They beautifully showcase one-of-a-kind items. The very type of items you will find in the fields and show sites of AntiqueWeekend.
A blogger I enjoy is Georgia's Home Inspirations. Like we do, the gals at Georgia’s love prowling the show sites at Round Top and Warrenton, finding unique items and including them in their decor. They have a great idea for displaying serving trays. Vintage trays like theirs abound at all the show sites. Silver or tole painted, plain or fancy, they are both practical and attractive. Rather than letting them end up collecting dust in the attic, Georgia’s Home Inspirations
posted a wonderful piece on decorating with silver trays.
this and other photos on their site for ideas before you shop this spring. http://www.georgiashomeinspirations.com/2014/01/silver-tray-array.html
Watch for vintage French linen like the pillow on the couch at the shows, too!
As always, enjoy the hunt!
