The Vintage Suitcase

If you live anywhere within driving distance to the Springfield, Missouri area, try to come Saturday to the Open House at the Humboldt Mansion. Robin Gilmore has opened up her gorgeous Carriage House and grounds for a seasonal sale which is being held Friday and Saturday, October 14-15.

I'll let the photos do the talking, but it's truly wonderful, full of inspiration and gorgeous finds.





















See the two concrete candlesticks in the center of the photo below?
They came home with me, along with two wonderful vintage looking bird prints.















The Carriage House is rented as an event and wedding venue.
