REMNANTS WEEKEND With the MR.

A Little late in getting this post up. My Mac Crashed (evidently they can!), but fortunately Apple got me back up in a few days and I am now backing up on outside service for future....ANYWAY.....Usually I go to the Remnants affair with my dear friend Lidy (French garden House), but she couldn't attend and I didn't want to miss, so I took the hubby, with explicit instructions that he couldn't say, "Where are you going to put that" or "We don't NEED that." He agreed so off we went....I won't go on about the chaos of the even this time since Country Living Magazine published the story. Let's just say there were long lines and shuttles..TWO shuttles....but we persevered and this is what I came home with....Did we NEED it, NO...but my hubby actually picked it out! We love our little lobster from New York Painting.
Loved all of the great ideas and inspiration....isn't this the greatest lamp shade?
Do you recognize what this is? They are made with old gas pump numbers? Maybe you have to be as old as me to remember when the numbers rolled like this...
Anything white.....
Loved this.....
Just adorable

And Elegantly clever... Couldn't you spend the day in this bed? The displays were so much fun.
All in all, the crowds got a little less, so we spent a little more.... I was surprised at how much my hubby liked it. Maybe it was the whole weekend away with wonderful food, nice hotel....quality time.....the perfect weekend...for both of us. I will go next year, because I know they will work out all the bugs of the huge crowds.....a good thing doesn't stay a secret very long!

This looks like SUCH a fun event! I'm sure I would have had a blast looking at all those unique items, and the display methods always catch my eye too. You were smart to give your husband "the talk" before the show though, I would have done the same thing. I get so sick of hearing it, even when he's right! ;-)~

Oh yeah...I remember when the gasoline tank numbers rolled...they still do around here on some of the tanks.
Looks like y'all had a great time...I'm envious -smile-.
