Auntie Joy who generously did a little midnight guest blogging right before our last event of the year. We love you, Auntie!
Tarte and Auntie Joy had a blast preparing for the show! I personally feel it was one of our most beautiful shows to date. It certainly was our best ever Fall event, that's for sure!! :o)
Our special friends and visitors have made this year incredible for Barn House!
The growth year over year is astounding. We would have never imagined that we would be embraced by so many after such a short period in this crazy game.
Check out the slideshow below for more pictures:
We have been asked the same question by many folks. "Where the heck are you guys?" It's pretty simple.
We have been doing less BH and a lot more J&J.
This includes visiting with friends and enjoying our farm/critters.
We were also absorbing the last few days of sunshine before what is predicted to be the worst NW Winter in 50+ years -- God help us all, LOL!
Oh, and then there has been all of the other AWESOME pieces of good news we would like to share!!!
#1 - Barn House is featured in the November 2010 issue of Romantic Homes Magazine!!! This year has been off the charts with the incredible press we have received! The Oregonian Newspaper, Somerset Magazine, Flea Market Style (TWO articles!), The Columbian Newspaper, Sunset Magazine and now Romantic Homes!!! Who would have known??!! HEE HAW!!!
Then there is some fantastic news about our Besties over at Tarte. The Tarte Family is taking a a new path on their journey!! Two years ago, we were there when they moved into their Barn in Oregon City.
Please try to imagine the amount of creativity, talent and hard work it takes to start with an empty old barn like this...
And turn it into a place overflowing with Magic and Inspiration for all that visit...
We have been extremely honored to have been featured invited guests at Tarte over the past years. Cindy's talent never ceases to amaze us. She is something else (to say the least)!!
Please check out Isabel (Maison Douce) and Joy (Auntie Joy) to see lots more pictures of the Tarte transformation over the past two years.
We are so proud of The Tarte People!! We love them and are so happy about their new venture. I will let them tell you what's next in The Land of Tarte, but I will say IT'S GOING TO BE INCREDIBLE!!!!
Bye Bye Oregon City...
Tarte is on to a new adventure...

Congratulations, Tarte People!!! Y'all are getting ready to really R-O-C-K the house!! Go on with your bad selves!! :o)
Much love from Jermonne....(Sorry, Cindy, for trying to hug your head off)
And much love from Joe...Thanks Tarte People for your friendship and inspiration...CAW CAW!!!
OK, then there is a BIG FAT PINK ELEPHANT that has been floating in the air for several months...
Honestly, the unexpected response to Barn House Market this year was unbelievable!! We could have never imagined the response OR the amount of work it would take -- product selection, product photographing, uploading pictures and let's not even talk about shipping. For those who have been following us for a while, you know there was a little drama behind the scenes with launching our online store. Check out the details here if you didn't hear the story. It's pretty hilarious. We pretty much shut the store down because we just couldn't manage it during our Event season with all of the other responsibilities. Not to mention, BHBoy #2 has been slowly trying to get BHBoy #1 to drink the BHMarket Kool-Aid. I eventually waved my White Flag and decided to just enjoy the Summer and Fall. It was a very good decision. We had an AMAZING time enjoying our home, farm and friends. It was liberating! Life is really too short to be stuck at this computer during the most beautiful time in The NW. The compromise was well worth it.
The good news is we are almost ready to reopen!! Here are a few sneak peeks...
Did we mention the Barn House Market Giveaway???
