WHILE I WAS away enjoying the balmy Florida weather, I understand you were also treated to springlike weather, much to the delight of those involved with the 27th annual Hunt Valley Antiques Show. The warm temps gave antiques buffs even more reason to get out of the house and enjoy "Garden Style Antiques," the theme of this year's show.More than 350 people attended the gala preview party at Marriott's Hunt Valley Inn, where they browsed through the exhibits while a trio played background music, and food and drinks were served.

Baltimore's traveling food-truck rally has found a winter home -- inside the Gameday Warehouse, a 2,500-square-foot facility near M&T Bank Stadium that is normally only open on Ravens home games. The first Gathering Underground on Dec. 13 is being billed as a preview party for a planned schedule of monthly winter rallies. The family-friendly event will include a coffee bar, a cupcake bar and beer and wine for sale, as well as live music, a disc jockey and vendors from Bmore Flea , Baltimore's new Saturday flea market at Penn Station.

April showers brought not only flowers, but some 650 people to the Rites of Spring Garden Show preview party at the Maryland State Fairgrounds.

Elegance abounded at the 2000 Decorators' Show House preview party, sponsored by the Baltimore Symphony Associates. Formally attired folk toured Loveton Mansion in Sparks, which was just as decked out as its visitors, courtesy of more than 30 local decorators and designers. The 250 guests then were shuttled to Embassy Suites in Hunt Valley to dine and discuss their favorite show house rooms -- such as the upstairs dressing room decorated to look like one that might have been used by Baltimore native Wallis Simpson on the eve of her wedding to Britain's Duke of Windsor, or the $10,000 dining room wallpaper, a pastoral hunting scene mural.

Baltimore antiques dealer Marcia Moylan said the 1796 pendant that she and fellow dealer Jacqueline Smelkinson will exhibit at this week's Hunt Valley Antiques Show "reads like the first obituary ever written." She's only half joking. She said the 4-by-3-inch pearl and enamel pendant is covered in words extolling the virtues of a young woman who died more than two centuries ago. She was "clearly the apple of her parents' eye," Moylan said. That pendant and thousands of other antiques that have touched many families' lives get the chance to do so again this weekend.
