Vintage Garden Show & New Purchases For The Courtyard




Steve and I went to a vintage garden show last weekend held at Renningers in Mount Dora, Fl.   This is the same location that hosts the huge Extravaganza Antique Market several times per year. 






I've always loved vintage garden furniture and there was lots of iron and wicker pieces at
the show.  We were shopping for items for our soon to be home,  especially the enclosed
courtyard.   The house is Mediterranean style and I envision the courtyard with lots of
plants and iron furniture.


  I couldn't pass on these large pots. They were made in Italy and will be perfect for
our palm trees.


I love the pots but this iron gate is the pièce de résistance !   The vintage gate will become
the entrance to the courtyard. 


Enjoy more pictures of the landscaping at Renningers Flea market in Mount Dora, Fl.







We close on our home in two weeks and I am excited to start updating and decorating. 

Thanks for visiting and have a great week.

I can get soooo carried away at a place like that.
They always make a yard look so elegant and green

I adore the iron gate. I cannot wait to see it as the entry to your garden. I love the photo of the asparagus fern in the birdhouse. Good luck on the house closing.

We've been to Mount Dora but never for one of the big sales. I've heard they are awesome though. One of these days I'd like to go. We've sure had beautiful weather to be out and about! Enjoy your weekend! Hugs, Diane

Hi Sherry! I think that your purchases will go great in your Italian courtyard! Thanks so much for sharing those photos of the garden show...it's kinda like being there for me. Also, it gives me some inspiration to get out in my own backyard and start sprucing up out there...it's a mess!
