So I decided to have a Barn Sale. You know the things you buy here and there that you think you need or the things you believe you can never live without. How about the ones that you say "OMGOSH I have to have it!" Well all of those things, I'm selling. Honestly, you know what usually comes after an impulse buy, for me it's "Hmmmmm, why did I get this?" Although I must say alot of the things I'm selling I still love, but I have been in a mood of finding a balance between pretty and simple, between accessorizing too much or accenting just right. My upstairs is alot different from my downstairs. It's simpler and less accented by little things here and there, where downstairs I am more preoccupied with how the room looks because any guests will automatically be in those areas.
Ever since I photographed my friend KC's home (see A Charming Country Home) I have been fixated with the idea of incorporated antique and vintage with new and traditional the way she so beautifully succeeded in doing. If you haven't seen the photos please do, just lovely.
Here is a peek inside of my barn.
So at the end of the day I am beat. The day was lovely but a little cold for me. I froze in my barn. I think I did well although a few ladies I was expecting weren't able to come. So that just means I'm gonna have to have another one soon to see if I can sell the rest of my things. I had in total 15 lovely ladies and two husbands come today and I wish to thank them all. I met new people and enjoyed visiting with my friends who came to support my impulsive idea.
You really know who your friends are when they support you even during your crazy ideas.
Thanks Michelle & Dawn your the best!
Also thanks to Karen, Meg, Amy, Donna and Shannon and her crew, sorry a 20 minute drive took a three hour tour. . . a three hour tour. . . Hee Hee.
