Oh my, what a fun day I had today!
Star Mill Antiques held a Beatrix Potter Festival.
Arriving there around 10:00 this is what we saw.
We could hardly wait to get out of our vehicles and start the hunt.
My friends Peg, and Kathy with Connie in the middle. Connie works at the Mill and was the inspiration for this entire ‘Potter's Party’Let me tell you, this lady does nothing minimally. She goes all out!
Two of my many treasures. An old lamp, it has a cast iron base; and A tartan plaid aqua colored tin. You know I love my aqua!
Not only did we have so much fun at the flea market, but we got to meet Beatrix.
And her sweet bunny...
Inside the Mill Miss Potter had a table set for a spot of tea and crumpets.
I painted the wooden animals years ago. When I saw that they were holding this festival I loaned them for their decor. Don’t they look right at home on their festive table. As usual, naughty Peter is hiding behind the cabbage bowl.
And no table would do without a chandelier hanging near by. A carrot chandy no less.
They are hard to see, but Beatrix even brought along 3 of her pet mice.
You know that they would be in 7th heaven if they got loose in that Mill!
I am sure that you would like to meet Daniel, the shopkeeper. Notice the star on his shirt?
And take a peek inside his wonderful Mill.
This is his fabulous ‘WHITE ROOM’
My entry way pillar and the chandelier hanging from my pergola came out of this room.
Another of Connie's creations. You never know how this mannequin will be dressed. Each time you visit she adorns a new gown.
Now can you see why I love shopping here for vintage treasures?
There is so much more to his shop, but I thought I might do an entire post on it at a later date.
Maybe when It is all decked out for Halloween or Christmas.
I wanted to end with two new vintage sprinklers that I picked up to add to my collection. Love them!!
Oh, and be sure and check back. I am going to be posting the three wonderful gardens that were in the tour. I guarantee, you won't want to miss!
