Gardens and Gables English Conservatory Event

20100701155054 Well before I can start telling you about our last event, I must show you the pictures of the process of finding all the wonderful  antiques!  I didn’t actually ride on the chair, but it was so comfy looking that I just had to sit there for a while and of course, my dad, couldn’t resist taking pictures of me!

Now, onto the big event!!!! I was dressed as a barrister  from the royal court of England. However, it was a bit hot and I just could not tolerate the heat!  Also, I was pretty upset by the appearance of a rather large bird, known as “Peabody” the peacock!  I feel that it was totally unnecessary  for that big flashy bird to be at my store!

Well beyond that everything was beautiful! There was an amazing square grand piano, with a beautiful statue on top of it.  Also there were lots of cloches with old books and plants in them.IMG_5021

Then there was a pond full of these crazy flamingo’s and they even all had names! They looked pretty silly if you asked me, but everyone loved them and several of them were “adopted”.IMG_5016 IMG_5015 IMG_5017

The beautiful “conservatory” was so wonderful, lots of windows and lace and cozy places to relax and beautiful chandeliers!IMG_5027 IMG_5026

There was a lot of wonderful antique  English  Transferware, in lots of different colors.IMG_5040 IMG_5005 IMG_5006

My sister, Charity , was visiting from Arizona and she did a lot of decorating with my mom. She did the “pink” section and the “industrial” section. They were both so fun and creative!IMG_5062 IMG_5050 IMG_5055 IMG_5060

All the Matilda’s girls did such beautiful displays with so many creative, fun ideas! IMG_5090 IMG_5082 IMG_5070 IMG_5066 IMG_5078

Out front of the barn there were so many antique garden items, it was really wonderful!  All of our customers were so pleased and we were so pleased that they came to see us even in the Hot Hot weather! I did all I could to entertain my fans, but even a professional star like me, gets worn out! IMG_5101 IMG_5099 IMG_5098 20100718112230

Our next event is Aug. 13,14,15. We are having our annual “dot” sale! There are lots of surprises in the works, that you are sure to enjoy!!   

Kisses,

Matilda
