Brimfiled continued

I didn't want to bog down any of my blogger friends computer so I am blogging this weeks post in 2.
These Wallace Nutting prints are rather small. The frames are 4.5 x 5.5 and the print is a mere 2x3

The smaller the prints the more expensive they are. I had been looking for a long time for small Nutting prints for this area and here they were in Brimfield. The frames are not in mint condition, but I will keep the prints in the original frames. I now want to find a couple larger Wallace Nutting prints. My husband and I have recently redone every room in the house, and have started to collect antiques prints. I have quite a few different artists.

I just absolutely adored these wall planters. I wished I cold have taken each and every one of them home with me. This booth had a lot of really nice pieces. This booth also had a lot of nice prints, but the dealer was priced rather high. Which here in MA we don't seem to have the deals that I see most bloggers in other states find.
Look at these beauties.
This is the first one I found, it was laying on a table and I took a picture to show my sister.

Then when I found a whole group of them, I was so excited like I was bringing them home....

I just love this one

I had found this vase a couple months ago in one of our local vintage shops.
I just love the back the way it curls like a cobra ready to attack. I have some Astilbes in it here but it sure did look sweet also with hydrangeas. I will be using this often next garden season.

Now on to the vases at Brimfield.

This blue vase is so pretty and would look so pretty in my blue bedroom. I just love the colored glass. I wish I had a nice sunny window for a colored glass collection.


And look at this beautiful yellow, there is just something happy about yellow.

I am looking forward to returning to Brimfield in the Spring.

Those prints are gorgeous. So glad you found them and were able to take them home with you. The wall planters are adorable, but they sure are expensive. At least you can enjoy them on your blog:-)
Thanks so much for sharing.

Wow! What a collection. I know about McCoy pottery and that it is pricey. I have never seen wall planters before. I have a bit of a bird fettish, so the one with the bird is my favorite. The prints are beautiful. I zoomed in so I could see them better.

Great prints and beautiful vases. My fav is the one with the bird. I understand, it was hard to find a real bargin in Round Rock, though I did manage to & was happy with my purchases. The heat really slowed me was merciless!

Thank you for linking to Potpourri Friday. I appreciated your participation. Sorry I'm so tardy in commenting, but I've been away for the past four days. Hope to see you again this week!

Hedda Hopper


May 2, 1890

Feb. 1, 1966
Actress, Journalist. Despite a 23 year career that encompassed over 120 motion picture appearances and chorus girl roles on Broadway to motion pictures, she is best remembered for her newspaper column and radio show that focused exclusively on Hollywood gossip, a subject she was able to tell more about to her audience due to her Hollywood insider status. Born Elda Furry in Holidaysburg, Pennsylvania, she left school to act on Broadway. In 1913 she married marquee star William DeWolfe, a man who was 32 years her senior. They had one son, and divorced in 1922, but she kept his name for the rest of her life (and changed her name to Hedda on the advice of a numerologist). In 1931 she began “The Hedda Hopper Show”, which initially ran as a 15 minute gossip show mostly devoted to Hollywood marriages and divorces. Enormously popular, it ran until 1951, and on the strength of its popularity she started the “Hedda Hopper’s Hollywood” column in the Los Angeles Times in 1938. She steadily gained a reputation for exposing tidbits about the lives of Hollywood figures, and created a character of herself in her own right, especially in regard to her vast collection of sometimes outrageous hats, and a long standing feud with rival gossip columnist Louella Parsons. With the advent of television’s popularity in the late 1940s and early 1950s, he radio show waned, but she herself became a staple of television programs and game shows, being a frequent panelist on “What’s My Line?’, and appear on shows like “I Love Lucy”, “The Colgate Variety Hour” and “The Beverly Hillbillies”. In 1960 she received the Journalistic Merit award, and published her autobiography “The Whole Truth and Nothing But!”, which recapped her over 20 years or being an Hollywood insider. She died in Los Angeles of double pneumonia in 1966, working right up until her passing. As a Hollywood icon, she created a number of friends and enemies; she gave harsh advice to actress Ida Lupino, which helped her gain recognizable part, but was despised by actress Joan Bennett, who once sent her a skunk. In 1985 a movie about the feud between her and Parsons was released as “Malice in Wonderland”, which Jane Alexander as Hedda Hopper and Elizabeth Taylor as Louella Parsons
