vintage wicker


vintage wicker to me, is classic and timeless.

it reminds me of a fabulous trip to brimfield 14 years ago with really good friends.
i was living in boston at the time and we all piled into a car and went for the day.

it was pouring rain, and we ran from field to field laughing and not stopping until it was time to leave... we came to the most amazing set of wicker furniture... perfect for my friends home...

problem was, how do we fit a fabulous set of wicker into our car and drive home?
due to circumstances and the weather...we had to leave it behind... we kick ourselves all the time over this.. "the one that got away"...

have you ever had something like this happen??

the french vintage floral on this vintage wicker is amazing.

I know my mom and I went to a barn sale one time and left a really sweet chair because it was in New York and didn't know how to get it back to CO--the shipping was ridiculous. We still talk about it. I shipped a stop sign home :)

Oh that chair and the fabric is so beautiful. It has all faded to the perfect degree !!
I used to miss things all the time. I'd hum and haw over something, then go home and wish I'd bought it.
I'm much better now though.... now I'm older and wiser !!!! XXXX

This happens to me all the time. Usually when I am in Hong Kong and can't figure out how to get cheap but divine furniture and homewares back to Australia! Love the blog!

I would love having beautiful wicker tables, chairs, and what-nots scattered throughout every room of the house...and the fabrics would hopefully be as beautiful as this one is.
