BARN HOUSE Flea Market - part deux!!

As I mentioned a couple of posts ago, Lisa and I went to the most amazing flea market, hosted by Joe and Jermonne from the Barn House. We had a ton of fun and came back with some great treasures, which I will share later in this post! Enjoy the pictures!

Here is Lisa, Joy and moi!

I brought this gorgeous dresser home with me... (bought from sweet Natalie, from Sparrow)

J&J live in the most beautiful country home, decorated with incredible detail and right out of a magazine page!! I had shared some pictures a while ago, but I couldn't resist snapping a few more pictures!!

My favorite part of the house!!! Can you tell?!!

I came home with...

a couple of vintage pink ticking pillows...

... a large panel of of barkcloth...

... a darling barkcloth purse...

... a vintage slip, a candleholder with barbola detail, a piece of ticking, a musical jewelry box, a pillowcase and... my favorite find of the day, a handpainted fabric glove box! How adorable is it?!!!


  1. i love to read your blog! hmmm... that is a cute little dresser you purchased! lol! absolutely you may have the coconut lime bar recipe! i am going to give it to J & J to post on their blog.

    Coconut Lime Sour Bars
    2 C flour
    4 T sugar
    1/8 tsp salt
    1 stick plus 2 1/2 T butter
    Mash together (dry, but holds together). Pour into 13x9 baking dish. Press into pan as evenly as possible. Bake at 350 degrees for minutes.

    4 eggs
    1 C chopped almonds
    3 C coconut flakes
    1 1/2 C brown sugar
    Mix and spread over hot baked crust. Bake 30 more minutes.

    4 T lime juice (2 limes)
    1 1/2 C powder sugar
    2 tsp lime zest
    glaze while HOT. Work quickly.
    I usually add a little bit more lime juice to thin the glaze a bit.



  2. BLESS YOUR HEART, sweet Natalie!!!
