Vintage Frames


Just got in a bunch of Vintage Frames.

Don't you love old picture frames.  I DO !!

The ones that are original....
all chippy and rickety....all fabulous !! 


I threw them all together in layered perfection




a little mess...
nesting pigeons 


lots of trophies 


love the canvas in the background....


made in the USA


waiting for this heat to pass...

loads to do at the Barn but too darn hot.
Yesterday was nice, the humidity went down, it cooled off a bit and everyone flocked in.

So fun to have a busy day....

See you there...

one by one....


One by one the vignettes are deconstructed, furniture is moved, flipped, sold...

and the new is created.

The new vignettes make us happy.
We all walk by with a happy sigh...something different and fun...

"Ooh I like that", Ashley squeals !!

Ashley knows to stay away when I am building.  At least until I am almost done, and then she knows I need encouragement !  Lots of happy Oohs and Aahs.


this is a great fall vignette
loads of color
birds, owls, pumpkins
weeds and sticks 
!!!


The NAPOLEON ST sign in a deep mustard yellow
Fabulous.




love the tin owls
2 sizes
Tall and squat



this cubby is a great wall divider... hiding the room behind it

it's also fun to fill with like objects


the mossed terracotta pumpkins are always my favorite



they just go with everything, those little pumpkins...



.... I'm off to have coffee with a friend

...and then off to play at the Barn.
I am deconstructing another large area today and pulling in some props to set up for Halloween.

I do a big Halloween area every year.  For the last 2 years it has been in the front of the store, as soon as you walk in the door... this year it will be closer to the back... we're going to mix it up a bit.  I'm not sure how much I will get done because it's going to be close to 100 degrees... and those of you who have shopped the barn know there is no air conditioning in the old place... AND it gets HoT.

So I will work until I can't stand it anymore...and then home to the pool.

Stay cool everyone!

Jd'Arc inventory update:
Issues 4, 6, 8 are in stock if you are looking for back issues.
Issue 9 should be arriving soon.

Apple harvest


More Barn Love.

My friend and fellow Barn - girl, Ms. M, brought me this fabulous table with two matching benches.  We plopped it down in the entryway and I proceeded to fill it with Fall splendor.  Starting with these fab apples.  How can we talk Fall without showcasing apples.

Apple Fest.


The open front cabinet is so fun.
It has drawers at it's bottom and some funky feet....
you have to see it to appreciate the true beauty.


It is so hard to shoot this front area because of the sunlight flooding in the front doors


the paper table runner / cover is really a nice touch

use inside or out !!

just cut a piece off the large role to fit your table.

throw away when you clean up...or re-role and save for the next night.





we've gathered ... you can pick...


we have the burlap...


weeds and sticks....



We have had tons of out-of-town visitors... customers !!
Thanks for spreading the word and telling your friends to stop.

Look for us on Facebook

vintage mixer


I love the fact that my Barn is not all Antiques or All re-purposed finds.
I love to mix in my new market goods also.

In with the new and In with the old, as I like to say...




Love this vintage rocker... my friend Stanley found it in his attic.  He told me it was his Grandmothers favorite chair.  The arms are worn perfect and the fabric - worn but by our standards "superb". 



Be your own decorator is easy when you mix in a little Barn Decor.


just received my shipment of Sue Wolfe art
...she does these in the Fall.
White pumpkin on metal

see you soon.
