What A Treat! Holly Lane Antiques In Print -

"Why do we love antiques? Perhaps it is because they are works of art with a past, or because they remind us of years gone by, or maybe it is the way they surprise and charm us?"

Last month Holly Lane Antiques participated in the Antiques At Elm Bank Show in Wellesley Ma. This is a favorite show of our summer schedule since it is set on the grounds of the historic Elm Bank Estate in tents amidst beautiful gardens.

I always strive to have my booth looking perfect to best showcase my antique treasures. On Sunday we were visited by two ladies who asked if they could take pictures for a magazine article they were working on - commenting that our booth was magazine ready. What a lovely compliment! The article would be featuring Antiques in New England.

What a surprise and treat it was to receive the link to the completed issue late last week! To see such beautiful pictures of our booth being featured was an amazing feeling.

Thank you to Yvonne Blacker and Rosanne Palazola and New England Finery Magazine!

"I love incorporating antiques into my design work. It gives a new design some history - some "ghosts"! With each piece I try to imagine what life was like when it was first brought into a home - how the owners lived, how the piece was used. And now it gets a chance at rebirth bringing the past into the present. Antiques also fit into my ethic of "Recycle, Reuse, Repurpose!" Antiques are the ultimate in green design."
