The Barn House Flea...


When I heard that my mama was going to be free for the weekend...I asked if she'd like to take a little trip down to the Barn House {vintage home & garden} Flea Market.  


She said she would.  So, Friday afternoon, we hit the road and a ferry...and headed in the opposite direction of the show.


"Why not..."  I thought,


"...take the scenic route!"


Being almost equally as nutty as I am...my mom agreed.

Isn't she fun!  Why not turn a five-hour drive into fifteen?  I'll fill you in on our wee road trip later.

 In the meantime, here are a few other things that make me happy...


ruffle-trimmed sofas on hay bales 



flip-flopped baby feet that make being little...feel like yesterday



cat naps



cowgirl hats

country gentlemen

Joe, of Barn House


Would you like to take a look inside the barn?


I was so happy when I learned that Liz, from Seabold Vintage Market, was going to be one of the vendors at the show!


Her warm traditional style speaks volumes to me.


Not only does Liz produce her own exquisite fabrics (Bainbridge Blues)...


She has a beautiful children's clothing line too!!!

Ahhh...so much loveliness in one place!

I'll show you what I found at BH along with a collection of other treasures I've gathered throughout the spring & summer...

...including goodies from:






...soon!

The day, however, wasn't just about treasure hunting...it was loaded with fellowship too!  In addition to being blessed by visiting with Liz, Deb & Bob, Heather, and Tiffany again...we met sweet Kimberly & Lissa.

Tiffany, aka The Fancy Farmgirl & Lissa, of Humble Pie

What fun!

Ya'll should definitely visit their wonderful blogs.  I felt a bit like someone attending a concert who'd never heard the music as Kimberly pointed out fashionable farmgirl after fashionable farmgirl and asked if I read their blogs.  One of these lovely gals was Lara Blair.  What a dear spirit she has!  Do you read Modern Prairie Girl?


Thank you so much to Joe & Jermonne for hosting such a beautiful show!  My mom and I really enjoyed it.  Everyone clearly put a lot of time, energy, creativity and love into the day!

Please visit Barn House for more detailed information about the show!

Thank you!

I hope you had a fantastic weekend!

Hi Julie . . . It was soooo good to see you at Barn House!! Now - if we just had a bit more time to chat it would be even more wonderful!!

So glad you got to spend some special time with your mom!!! Mother and Daughter trips are extra special - I so remember doing them with my mom!!

Just so you know . . . your pictures are ten times better than mine of my space . . . so I think I will send people your way to see them :)

You know that you have a deep place in my heart as you were one of the very first people I met in this Vintage world - when you were so kind to me at Farm Chicks last year!! I feel so blessed to have gotten to know you more over the last year!!

Love all your scenic photos!! Have a wonderful summer!!! xo . . . liz
