While I didn't buy anything at the recent Northwest Flower and Garden Show/Festival I still appreciate my favorite vendors that continue to show up year after year. Christianson's hauls in quite the vast quantity of plants and plant related items.
This Portulaca molokiniensis tempted me. Not hardy but it's a looker.
It makes me happy to see such a wide variety of plants at a show that seems to have fewer and fewer pant buying opportunities.
I carried around one of those grey-leaved Grevilleas for awhile (on the floor, there's one left, behind the three green leaved ones), then I talked myself out of it. Later I talked myself back into it (after all it's my duty to support the plant vendors!) but when I returned they were all gone! Oh well...
This is a good combo!
Christianson's also had two extraordinary pieces of jewelry on display, a pin...
And a collar (?). They looked to be vintage, they were lovely. And too expensive for me.
Swansons keeps on showing up too...
I think they had this same "fern table on glass" thing in their booth last year.
No worries, those are not real fish.
Love that container, the ribbed metal one.
Although over in the Ravenna Gardens booth...
Was the actual vintage version that my heart pines for.
Everybody loved this book...
I still love the hanging octopus planters...
And giant Monstera leaves are always a good thing.
Kokedama is still popular.
I like the knotted twine accent.
Now that I've finally made peace with the fact there's a huge vintage market in the corner (instead of plant vendors) I actually kind of enjoy it.
After all it's better than gutter covers or hot tubs.
I should have bought one of these...
And enjoyed checking out the vintage barware at Raising the Bar, from Spokane.
Have you missed my posts from Paris? I still have a lot to share!
Love those Royal Copley vases... (I collect them)...
That's a wrap on my coverage of the 2018 NWFG Festival!
