Lakewood 400

I've come to grips with the fact that I am no longer an adolescent. I enjoy gardening, npr, and antiquing just to name a few very "adult" things I partake in.

This saturday I enjoyed a mother/daughter day at Lakewood 400. Being a big fan of the previous Lakewood, I didn't have very high expectations. I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived to a vision of cottage flowers, iron yard art, and table after table of, as I affectionately call it...junk.











My favorite booth was Annie Grosgrain. Her shop was stocked full of vintage spools, hand dyed ribbon and lace, and lovely old gift wrapping supplies. Heaven.







Other favorite was this hardware and wood salvage booth. I love these old letters. I bought some wood block letters and numbers from him. I could have gone crazy, beautiful glass knobs, door knockers, hardwoods.





I bought a few pieces and you will just have to wait and see how I turn them in to little wonders in my home...

I want to go to this! I used to go to this amazing antique flea market when I lived in Chicago, and I didn't know there was anything like that here! I want I want! Oh and I totally bought some wood printing letters at the market in Chicago. Love those!
