Home and Garden Show

The annual Southern Home and Garden Show was held on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the fairgrounds. It's quite a big event and is spread out in three huge buildings. I went with my sister, my daughter and my daughter's mother-in-law. We try to go every year. We got there early because there is one vendor we love to visit which is an interior decorating booth that has fabulous accessories from the High Point furniture area, and it's a "first come, first serve" basis.

I was too busy shopping and forgot about taking pictures. I did manage to get two. You can visit my daughter's site sunnispace and click on "sunniviews" to see more photos.

These are the treasures I found. A beautiful old serving plate made in England. I fell in love with the colors.

A pretty heart with ribbon flowers, and embellished with sparkly gold and pearls.

And last, but not least, a little porcelain handpainted teapot that stands about 3-1/2 inches tall.

We had a great day, and after being on our feet for hours, we treated ourselves to a nice dinner and a glass of wine at a wonderful Italian restaurant.
