Last weekend, at Barn House, I truly ooed and ahhhed over all the beautiful pieces displayed, but tried to stay away from spending money, as I was there to sell, not to buy (how many times do we say that...??!!! It doesn't really stop us, does it??). But there were a couple of things I couldn't resist! One of them was this adorable little wicker purse... This one is my fourth, does that mean I have a collection?



This little child's dress called my name...


At the end of the day, as I was packing my stuff, Joyce surprised me with this sweet needlepoint pillow... She had seen me grab it a couple of times during the day, while I was pondering wether to get it or not... How sweet is that?!! Thank you, Joyce!!!!


Then, at a local antique mall, I found this cute vintage wallpaper chest of drawers...


... a great ironstone chamber pot...


... and the sweetest miniature rose painting...


Today, while garage "saling" (making up words, now!), I came home with this great iron stand...   


... a slipper chair which I will attempt to recover...


... a footstool base...


... and my most exciting find... A great wood cabinet!!


Finally, I got this huge framed print from a friend who called me asking if I wanted it it, before she dropped it off at Goodwill!! I see a gorgeously huge inspiration board in the future....!!!
