A Beautiful Day for a Barn House Sale!

Are you ready to be blown away?  The Barn House boys and friends put together an amazing show on Saturday and I could hardly wait to share the gorgeous displays with my dear blog friends!  Here we go...virtual shopping spree!
Denise of Pink Postcard was at the sale with her family.  It was such a pleasure to meet her in person!
Kittens!  They added to the whimsical ambiance of the sale!
This one was poised so perfectly on a vintage bed...
it just couldn't be real, could it?
It sure was!
My fellow vintage treasure-hunting enthusiast and dear friend Florence was shopping the sale as well...I knew I'd be seeing her!  She is also a very talented photographer and I'm embarrassed that my photo with her is out of focus!  I forgot to change the settings back to auto before I handed over my camera.
Look!  A chamber pot used to water the chickens!  I've been a little obsessed lately with chamber pots and how they are used in their second life.  Here is another way to use and display them that I hadn't thought of!
Here I am with some of my dearest and oldest friends.  Rebecca, Sarah and I have known each other since middle school and their mom, Rhea is just as sweet as she can be!  Rebecca was a bridesmaid in my wedding 10 years ago!  Seeing them at the show really made an already lovely day, extra special!
And there goes my hunky Sherpa toting my one and only purchase of the day!  I will share more photos of this darling little table and tell you more about it later in the week!
Thank you for your sweet visit!  I hope you had a fabulous, sunny weekend!  I know the folks here in the Pacific Northwest were beyond ready for the sunshine.  Shopping for treasures on the Barn House boys beautiful country farm was such a lovely way to enjoy the sunny day!

Best Wishes and Blessings,

  6. Virtual shopping is better than window shopping, Amanda! I'm not tempted to walk in the store and whip out my credit card! : ) I saw lots of goodies I liked though. That little chair I saw at the beginning and end of your post is something I would have been interested in getting.

  7. I really enjoyed seeing the pictures, The cat pictures are wonderful! And there were so many great things to buy.
