Here it is! The SIMPLEST Christmas Tree EVER!

 This is the simplest tree we've ever had-I've heard some complaints from some of the kids-maybe next year we can go with something a little more traditional but for now I find the simpleness REFRESHING!
 I painted these little guys about 15 years ago or so...

Wishing all my blogger peeps a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

The Start of our Christmas Decor

 OK, so I finally started to dress the place up with some Christmas decor. We all have our own style and mine is quite minimal compared to some and I don't like a lot of color. My family thinks it's boring-I think it's simple and pleasing.

I will be bringing out more decor and posting about it in about another week or so. This year I would like a small REAL tree and I hope  there is no spiders in it waiting to thaw!!!! eeek!

Tattered & Torn ~Day in the Country Sale

This weekend  was the one I've been waiting for since the last sale they had here in May! I picked up my friend that went with me to the last one as well and off we went!  It's called  Day in the Country Sale and is hosted by Kim Davies from  Tattered & Torn. The barn is packed with antique and homemade deliciousness from multiple vendors. Seen here is the lovely Ironstone bowl I purchased from Kim. 
This barn is packed with AMAZING antiques & handmade goodies from multiple vendors-they even have a portable potty which impresses most of us since we are up early drinking our Timmies! lol
And they actually had drinks & donuts for everyone there as well!
This couch almost made me cry-and for very good reason-which I will explain in  a minute

Most of the photos you will see are from Tattered & Torn booth because it is the largest, most spacious booth-unfortunately I didn't get a chance to get all the booths and views of the sale because there was just too many people in there! 

This barn sale has some serious amazingly beautiful pieces! 
AND! I just noticed Chrissy from right there in the background by the fireplace mantle! it was SO nice to meet her in person!
This was the Eclectic Pelican booth-I apologize for not taking the best photos of the event-it was VERY HARD due to the fact that there were so many people in the way!!

This booth was Christine's from which was shoulder to shoulder people fighting for her lovely hand made & vintage goods! 
This beautiful PIE SAFE also has special meaning! I coveted it since her May show and it is now mine because Kim is a very, very  wonderful woman! (tears)

such details!

I purchased this Vintage by Nina Christmas coffee table book from

cute skates from

This stocking is from
I have never owned a rug beater-so I picked this one up at the show.

NOW! this couch (on the left) was a road side find from last year-I picked it up and brought it home with the intention of doing 'something' with it. As time past we had moved it from the barn to the trailer to the bunkhouse  and back to the barn and my husband asked what I was going to do with it because it is a very large piece and with all my other road side finds-it was taking up space! SO....I just KNEW that Kim would turn it into something fabulous so I handed it over to her and here it is adorned with antique grain sacks & homespun. It was beyond my expectations! 
IMPORTANT MESSAGE: I just received notification that this sale is going on AGAIN NEXT SATURDAY (24th) so save the date!!
