Whoa Momma!

It’s Sunday evening and we just finished our three day Mother’s Day Event at Matilda’s.  I have to say it was absolutely one of our best shows!  Our customers were lined up Friday morning and not a parking spot was to be found by 11:00…Thank you!!!  Keith took lots of wonderful pictures and Matilda will be posting them soon, so for now I will just show you my space.

This great cupboard is about 9 feet tall and is one that I brought back from Texas.  It came out of an old home in Pennsylvania.  The urn and pillar (a  pair of each) also came trucking home with us.

It seemed like every where we went in Warrenton, Marburger and Round Top, this beautiful color of aqua kept showing up ..When I saw this amazing Madonna and Child I had to have her.  The ceiling tile behind her is a convex shape with a cross in the top center.

More of that great color!

Love these old gazing balls!!

Again, in so many of the vignettes in Texas, not only were there splashes of greens and blues, but Frenchy foo, foo mixed with industrial…love it!  I brought back these French chairs and the sweet gold one in the background.

Another glimpse of the entrance to my area.

I found a pair of these wonderful half columns from a church in Louisiana.

This is a great old rusty medical cabinet with that wonderful old 1940’s cotillion dress.

I’m sorry this picture is a little blurry…that was me, not my camera!  I just had to show you the fantastic 7 foot farm table that I purchased at Blue Hill.  Then this wonderful cupboard from Mandy at Marburger….man did we have fun!!

One of my favorite finds was this concrete Madonna and the Victorian clock case.  One may just have to find it’s way home with me…..

Well, it’s been a long week end, gals, but I am closing knowing how truly blessed by our customers  we are at Matildas ….Again thank you!!  I know I haven’t been out there in blogland, commenting a lot lately, but I am trying to slowly catch up on everyone…I’ve missed you!

Eveything is just beautiful Gale. I heard that aqua will be the color for this year. Now I don't know if that was meant in fashion or home decor, but looks like home decor to me! lol
