Monticello Marketplace

I finally got to visit Monticello Marketplace last weekend! I have been a big fan of some of their vendors and their blogs for many months. My sister was shocked when I recognized a couple of the booths from online. Does that mean I blog too much?

There were lots of fun vintage finds to be had.

I loved this vignette. The colors popped so beautifully.

A cabinet my sister considered buying. I think she has decided to pass, but I am sure it will find a happy home soon.

The front window at Monticello. Each month a new vendor gets the chance to decorate the front window. Doesn't that sound like fun! I may mention that to our shop owner and see if it's something she would be interested in.

Always love the silver pieces, tarnished or shiny.

This was my VERY favorite piece. Come to find out it was my Mom and Aunt's too! We weren't perusing the isles together so when we met up we had a good giggle about our similar tastes! I am loving the gray right now. I just finished a dresser for Jazz that I did in a light gray and it turned out pretty good if I do say so myself. I'll have to show you in another post. My posting here seems to be few and far between, I barely seem to blog at my personal blog anymore, let alone here.

More gray and white. It was strange when I looked back through my pictures that the vignettes that caught my eye were mostly gray and whites. It seemed to be a recurring theme and popular amongst the vendors.

Little touches of Autumn were around every corner. I hope you are all having a marvelous Fall and thank you to Michelle for keeping us entertained with such wonderful posts!

Oh goodness, those are great pictures, cousin Tara! I love their goods! I am digging the gray tones these days, too. What is it about gray? I've always loved it for my wardrobe....but rarely chose items in that color for my decor.
I hope I can take a trip to Portland some day and check out the great vintage shopping there!

Love all the gray furniture and the white dishes and such! So many beautiful items! My mom is just coming home from Portland today! She loves it there and visits every year.

That gray is so wonderful! Just painted our master bedroom a French gray/blue. I can hardly wait to paint a few pieces of furniture too!
