My first stop is the old farmhouse down the road, they always put out the best stuff. I didn't even let the guy unload from his truck. I bought two chairs, a small white bench and a red stool.
And then I spied a dresser in the barn, excuse me Sir, are you selling that dresser, "well yes I am," he said "but I didn't get it out yet, I thought it was going to rain." Mind you, it is only 8:30 AM. Oh you don't have to bother moving it to the front yard, I will pay for it and come back and get it later. I skipped back to the car. There really was no need to look anymore, I was already a happy camper, but I will.
The picture doesn't show it but it is YELLOW, soon to be WHITE!
And, of course I did. It was slim pickings this year. I was able to find a small bench that I have been looking for to use my burlap on.
Just don't let Berries sit on it.
I did quite a few drive bys, I was not in the mood to look through kids cloths and have my son whine that he needed a new toy, NOT. So we headed back to pick up all my treasures. Lucky timing for me, another neighbor was also out looking for treasures to resell in his barn. I have met him before and I knew he sold furniture out of his big red barn, but I always thought he refinished them. Oh no, he has a little of everything and he was on his way home to put the open sign up. Well let me just unload my car and I will be right there.
The clouds cleared and the ray of sunshine was upon me. This man had so much WHITE in his barn, how do I wipe this stupid grin off my face. He seems to love chairs a more than me if that is possible. I could not believe I had never stopped by his barn before, that might actually be a good thing. I bought two more white chairs for my gardens, a white bench seat, with a lift up lid for my mud room and a white potting stand.
Do you see the theme here?
With a wave he told me to "stop on back."
"Oh, don't worry, I will, you have a mantel and a bed frame that I might just have to come back for."
Here is a picture of all my new treasures.
My favorite treasure of the day is this little rose pitcher, it is just perfect and I can't wait to get it home.
I am going back out again tomorrow. Insert evil laugh here, hahahahaha.
Um honey about those groceries, I got side tracked on the way to the grocery store. Do we REALLY need milk today. Isn't life just grand! I hope you have as good a weekend as mine has already been, and it has only just started.
If anyone has seen Blossom, tell her I have been looking for her.
