Well, hello! It’s my pleasure to be visiting here today, doing a guest post, for Kelli. My name is Patty from…Another cookie, please! Actually, I’m quite honored to be in her Manolo blog-shoes today even though they pinch a little. She has smaller feet than I do.
What a lovely place! Beautifully decorated, very cozy as blogs go, I must say. There’s even an inviting bottle of Merlot sitting here…with my name on it. How thoughtful!
Excuse me while I go and find a glass….
Kelli’s been at Brimfield, lucky lady. I so would love to go there and step back in time, looking at all the treasures people leave behind.
Just to give you an idea of the vast expanse of Brimfield, take a look at this aerial photograph. Isn’t it amazing? For both antique dealers and lovers, this largest outdoor show in New England, takes place three times each year, for six days in May, July, and September.
Displayed everywhere are old rocking chairs where a young mother once sat, cuddling and nursing her baby while singing soft lullabies. As the years passed, this same woman would slowly rock back and forth, gazing out a window as the seasons changed; so much older and nearing the end of her life with each creak of the chair.
Photographs, paintings and exquisite etchings, Kelli’s favorite works of art, long to be admired, waiting to again grace the walls of a home as potential buyers glance.. then quickly walk away.
