Today is my final post about our fantastic trip to this spring’s Brimfield Antique Show. It’s my favorite part of every year, and I’m always sad to see it go. My final post is inspired by that last part of a fireworks show. You know the finale section where they seem to light every last sparkler they have left in their kit at once? Well, these last 25 photos are my design version of that finale. These are choice moments, pieces and ideas from the show that didn’t fit into our previous posts’ themes but deserved to be celebrated just as much. From bedding and bird cages to ebony boxes and industrial shelving, these were the last pieces that stuck out in my mind and still hold a place in my design-loving heart. xo, grace

Image above: I loved this set of milk glass shakers. They were too pretty to break up — I wanted to leave them in this colorful set and frame them.
Image above: I wanted to wrap myself in these overdyed rugs forever. Seriously. The color was so rich and saturated, I felt like I could taste it.
Image above: This green chenille blanket was a total steal. Affordable, soft and in such a fun color.
Image above: These sweet matches were such fun colors. They felt like a tiny box of candies.
Images above: See why I wanted to live tucked inside these rugs? The overdyed rugs were my favorite part of the show’s textile collection.
