Two girls and a barn sale!


If you've been following along this week, you know that Megan & I have had a busy week of painting. Well today we decided to take the day off and head off to our favorite barn sale. Wow, that sure was a good decision. The barn sale was having a yard sale! What could be better than that? Here are the goodies that made their way home with us!


The tennis racquet is going in Ryan's room and the azaleas sign is going out in the garden.


We love homemade ice cream around here and this is a really cool old freezer.


A roll of upholstery webbing, a toolbox that's going to become a planter and some fun vintage croquet mallets.


Hey, it's never too early to be thinking about Christmas!


The pail and clock are Megan's.
The knobs are for my newly painted bedroom furniture.


I just love this scale!


All sorts of treasures!


I am most definitely a scarf girl!


The fan is for Megan.



She's working on a globe collection too.
And she even found a great deal on a pull-down world map!


The industrial shelf is just totally awesome! We had to snatch that tag quickly. It went home with Megan too, sigh!


No, the Toms didn't come from the barn sale, but I've wanted a pair for a while now and we just happened to find some after lunch. Aren't they cute?


Lunch was a treat too. We ate at Bryan Voltaggio's new casual eatery Lunchbox. If you happen to be a Top Chef fan, then you'll definitely remember the Voltaggio brothers. And after a bit more shopping, we hit Ben & Jerry's for a dessert fix before heading home. ..... Now that was pretty much a perfect day!

Wow! Check out all those great finds! I especially love the globes, that industrial shelf and of course, those toms, I've never worn them before but they looks so comfy.

Boy- You girls hit pay dirt there! I love those globes and the shelves, too. Those knobs are getting harder and harder to find,too....at least the old ones.

Love your new Toms. Make sure you saturated them with Scotchguard. They will look like new forever. I do that with EVERY pair of shoes (or purse) that I get- rain and drips (ummm coffee spills for me) just roll right off.

Have a wonderful weekend- xo Diana

Looks like a fun sale! I love the industrial shelf and the Toms. I've wanted a pair for a long while too but I've yet to take the plunge. Ha ha

What a fun day you had!! I wish there were barn sales in my part of the country. If there were, it would be sales of old farming equipment (which there is plenty of around here), but no fun antiques or vintagey things.

My favorites, that scarf, I am a scarf girl too! I have tons of them. The globes, love globes, the croquet set, and I am so in love with that scale!

LindaC said...

We live on Azalea Court so that sign is so me. Also love the fan. I too have been eye-ing a pair of Toms. Great haul!

It's just such a treat to see all you came home with! I can't tell you how long I've been trying to find an old croquet set. So cool! Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a nice note about my map project. Part 2 should be coming very soon! Hope you'll come back by.

What fabulous finds! Love the glass knobs and globes! The scale is also something I would have snatched right up. :-)

Donna Wilkes said...

I am awed by the mix of your finds. I really love that azaleas sign and the glass knobs. Totally envious of the lunch destination - he was my favorite on the show! Can't wait until you show what you are going to do with this loot!
