Orchard In Bloom

What a wonderful weekend I've had!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Saturday was girl's day out so I went with 2 friends to Indianapolis to the Orchard In Bloom Garden show. It is one of my absolute favs as far as garden festivals go. It is held in Holliday Park, which has some beauteous ruins.

The festival is a fund raiser for The Orchard School and I'm sure they rake in the dough each year. I could have filled up about 10 houses with the stuff I saw and loved. Even though it is a 'garden' show the home decor found there is so awesome.

I loved these paper mache shoes...................

In the same booth was this darling piece......................

And also this chair...........................LOVE IT...........................................

In another booth was this repurposed vintage light fixture..............

and this old windowpane framing a hand-painted wreath.........................

This little gnome garden was really cute too..................................

I would give just about anything to have an outdoor living space and thought this set-up was cute.........Love the old and new mixed together!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Or maybe I would prefer to have an outside shower.................................

I even found an cabinet with chicken wire in the door panels so I had to snap it to show hubby who thinks I'm crazy when I see a cabinet at an auction and say I would love to do that to it.

I love that aprons are coming back too!!!!!!!!

I was a good girl as all I bought was a parsley plant, some cat grass, Mom's Mother's Day gift, and this pillow for the bedroom...............

Found the pillow at this cute little booth........................

Can't wait till next year's event!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Gosh I would have blown the budget there - that chair with the writing on the seat, the grey cabinet with checken wire, the iron bench etc. You had such willpower....and the embroidered pillow is gorgeous.
