Comfort Antique Show - Part 2

Although I am a color girl - can't help it, always attracted to it - I LOVE old
 architectural pieces and any good old crusty paint, regardless of color!

Nancy and Mike, at House Wren, are most creative when it comes to pulling together the best of old white paint, lots of natural materials like homespun and vintage lace, and tons of natural wonders like bird nests, wasp nests (and I do mean WONDERS - I truly believe these things are miracles of God and nature, but that's another conversation)

Then there is the lighting they create from stuff, really, just stuff - old cans, baskets, scrap metal, ribbed metal roofing - you name it, they can come up with the most clever way to hang it and light it.

These pieces fit in an industrial looking decor or in a cottage look, or even in a most contemporary setting.

They usually set up at Fredericksburg Trade Days and were trying out the Comfort Show for the first time.
Unfortunately they did not have access to electricity so they were not able to light their fixtures. I sure hope they give the show another try in the Fall and get a space with power.

Wouldn't it be fun to see the light shining through all their wonderful pieces!
