Barn House Sale - This Saturday!!
We had a wonderful time this weekend at the first Flourishes Flea Market. Outside of an actual bear rolling through and knocking over some of the displays in the wee hours of the morning, it was a beautiful day. Aleta has some before and after pictures on her blogs. Fortunately for us, the Barn House booth was untouched. I don't know if it was the garlic cloves Joe hung (to ward off any vampires), or the fact that he peed around the parameter of our space to keep the deer from eating our display flowers, but whatever it was, IT WORKED! Just Kidding Aleta ...he would never-ever-EVER pee outside at your place! But, we did have a little talk with Bill, your son and son-in-law just for future reference. ;o) Here are some more pictures of our space.
The Barn House Family has been hard at work here on The Farm getting ready for Saturday!!! Everybody has been out shopping like maniacs over the past few weeks. Joe has spent ALL of our breakfast, lunch and dinner money...Sylvi (Little Cottage) is exhausted from all of the shopping/sewing she has been doing...we saw Susan & Chrissy (no-blog-having-Couture Junquie) this weekend and they told us about the truck loads of great treasures they are bringing over!! Toree (no-blog-having Narrow Gate) called today and has also found some great items she is bringing. AND, we can't leave out our favorite "Master Primitive Finder" Natalie (no-blog-having-Sparrow) and what must be her under-studies and the newest members of The Barn House Family, Debbie & Laurie (no-name-having-OR-blog having!). They (Debbie & Laurie) came over today and started on their space and it looks Fantastico so far!!
NOW, it's just time for EVERYone else in The Family to get to work while I (Jermonne) am slaving away at my other gig!!! :o) This evening after I came home, I helped Joe haul all of the completed projects and new-finds out of the basement to The Barn...and out of the basement to The Barn...over and over like a broken record.
Good thing there is always the surprise of a pretty new flower when I get home to distract me from all of the hard (and I mean HARD WORK) that still needs to get done, or I might have a spell that requires some "porch time." BUT, this family works great under pressure!! And we hope y'all are delighted by the end result!!
Keep checking on us out for more pix of the progress this week...Hope to see you on Saturday!!
