This past weekend, I tromped over acres of antiques and vintages treasures in Mount Dora at the Renningers Antique Extravaganza. The first of the season, it is one of my favorite fall activities.
In Florida, we don't have much in the way of seasons but this show always makes me think of the coming holidays, cooler days and the thrill of finding a great treasure that someone has discarded and is just waiting for me to repurpose! I have found many of these over the years and the fun of it is not knowing what you might bring home. And even if you don't find anything (rarely does that happen), it is just fun to look. And then there is a trip into the quaint little town of Mt. Dora and a visit to all of my favorite little shops. Bliss.
No matter what your decorating style may be, every home needs a vintage or eclectic piece. As an interior decorator, I love to mix and blend old with new. It's what makes a house a home.
Best wishes to all for a wonderful thanksgiving.
