We're Back......

Confession-~~~~- For a month and a half I've been trying to get a blog post done....'What?' some of you say- 'It cannot be that hard-can it?' Well, not really and yes really..... I started one with all sorts of great pictures that I had uploaded from the 2014 Barn sale and then the weather changed- as in the weather forced the computer down and all that was on it (at that time-not forever gone!). So after that we've been gone to stock shows for the better part of a month and when I have been home I've had a date with the washer, dryer and iron rather than computer! I know I'm not a full time blogger (well- maybe in my dreams I am....) but for now I have to re-commit to making this a part of my job!  So, We're back.... (actually we still have a few stock shows left) but for the most part posts should come a little more regularly!

We really do Love Barn Sale--- The truck greets like a huge smile on a warm day!

Not only do WE love Barn Sale- but all these people do as well- This is our AmaZinG group of Vendors from 2014--- The show would not be possible without them...... we are missing just a few that were last minute prepping their booths!

 This picture makes me smile- Dad and daughter hanging out waiting on Mom.....

We were able to jump on the Rusty Truck for some family pictures before the Saturday fun started!  GoOdS were All over the Barn!!
Don't these beautiful ladies look 'HAPPIE' to be in the barn- They truly were!  Royer's Pie Haven was slingin' pies all night Friday and all day Saturday.  We were Delighted to have them in the barn and I know the shoppers were too!!

Speaking of Shoppers- This precious group of ladies has grown over the years- they add another one or two to the group each time.  Armed and ready- they also come in several SUV's now (after a previous experience when they didn't have enough space to get everything home from the barn!)- This year another shopper was so amused by the groups purchases and stood in the parking lot just to watch them try and load all their GoOdS into their SUV's!  Talk about fun and memorable trips!  I've gotten more than one email or call from them asking me to keep my eyes peeled for specific junk throughout the year- and a few times I've been able to find what was asked for!  Their smiles say it all- they L-O-V-E the Barn Sale!!!

Ford Junktion has some Love in their booth too!

Sweet Sisters from Ford Junktion with more Barn Sale love..... This was their first show and they are totally hooked----

And last but not least for this round of 'catching up' on the blog... It's almost Spring- we've officially 'sprung ahead' as my body is trying to figure it out....  time to think of the outdoors, gatherings on the porch, good ol' parties and trips to Warrenton/Round Top.  This sign was one of my Favorites in the Barn this year- thanks to the ever creative and talented duo at Texas Trash and Treasures .  We sure hope all these amazing vendors are getting ready to fill out applications for our Nov 6-7 show this year!!!

 I personally will follow the turquoise arrow- I love to visit and have a good time with friends!

Until next time (not 3 months from now I dare say.....)

Keep up with us on Facebook if you can- we've uploaded a whole lotta' Barn Sale pics in an album there- Rusted Gingham.

Some of the Barn Scenery.....

It is always a surprise to me how fast time goes after the Barn Sale... when I think I'm going to be able to sit and get a note out to our wonderful shoppers and vendors here via the blog and now it is the middle of December- Yikes!  Better late than never, right?!

 To Start off with- I know we have already said 'Thanks' but we can never say it enough!  We here at headquarters know the sale of all sales would not be what it is without each of you- Blog readers sharing this with friends, vendors, shoppers and 'tag alongers' (yes I just made that up) because some of you have just 'tagged along' to the Barn Sale yet find yourself enjoying it!
(If these little turkey hot cocoa bags don't make you smile just stop looking....and by the way- The Cocoa Koolers were Amazing once again! Hope you were able to enjoy some!)

Here she is shined and ready for her Big Day!  This truck greets more people in its two days at the barn than I think see it all year long- SO Thankful to the precious couple that are more than gracious to allow us to make her the centerpiece as you come in the barn!

Not to slight the 'old rusty truck' - It had center stage in the Rusted Gingham booth upon entrance to the barn!  How cute are these two guys sneaking a peak through the window?  There was a chandelier hanging from the roof of the truck- but it sold before we could get a picture of it!

Welcome to the Barn sweet Barn thanks to precious Jill at Soul Sentiments Now I feel like you are ready for a tour of the place since you have been officially welcomed!

True Texas above- Love and Home on old barn wood with rusty tin.... classic Barn style....
And mesquite- how much of that have you seen growing around barns?  (at least in our part of the world)... I know other states don't have to deal with- admire it's beauty when it is cut down!
Such unique creations from both of these vendors!

Terra Cotta art in pretty shapes and sizes right across the alley from fabric file folders and beautiful photography on canvas!

 Silverlicious- Oh yes- always Cute display.... I have a friend at church who has worn her gorgeous silver chandelier earrings every Sunday since Barn Sale- I think she is taunting me as I did not get to them first!

Amen to this- we typically think of children with pure hearts and unaffected by this world.  However, we are all born into sin so it is up to us to have a relationship with our Saviour and ask for this pure heart on a daily basis! I haven't a clue which booth this was in- so kudos to whomever created it and purchased it!

And lastly for this post- I will leave you with this...... Joy to the World- our Lord has come- Let earth receive her King!!!!  May you have a blessed Christmas season!

Thank you for sticking with us all year and for your anticipation for the Barn Sale annually- we are truly Thankful, Honored and Blessed to host it.  We anticipate it so much and look forward to our family that greatly expands that weekend each year! 

We will continue to post pictures... lots of pictures!  And we will post them in our Facebook album as well!

Rusted Gingham on the Road

This Weekend Rusted Gingham will be traveling to a spot in the road called Verdi- This is a worthy little spot as we will be part of Vintage in Verdi!  The gals that host this are absolutely precious and we are glad to be there with them!

Last year was downright 'bone chilling' but I am happy to say that the forecast for this weekend is in the low 70's for the high!!!  Woot Woo!!!
 Verdi is just down the road from Pleasanton, Texas. So if you missed us at the Barn Sale- come out here and say Hello!

This year there promises to be a ton of cool vendors- several I am excited to say were at the Barn Sale- so maybe I can shop their Goods here in Verdi!!!!  We are supposed to be toward the 'back' on an isle... look for our white tent with Rusted gingham goods all around!
This was Kate and I last year at the end of the day- did I mention it was cold?  How about 28° Cold!!  

Yet- there were shoppers all day- A fabulous turn out for a First time event and Blustery weather!  The coffee and cocoa booth was rockin' last year- and I am sure they will be again this year!  

Hope to see you in Verdi!!!!
