|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. http://www.tatteredandtorn.ca/
|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!
|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!! http://www.eclecticpelican.ca/
|This booth was Christine's from http://1871farmhouse.blogspot.ca/ 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)
|I purchased this Vintage by Nina Christmas coffee table book from http://www.tatteredandtorn.ca/
|cute skates from http://1871farmhouse.blogspot.ca/
|This stocking is from http://darylmc.blogspot.ca/
|I have never owned a rug beater-so I picked this one up at the show.

|I have SO many antique laundry room decor items-wooden iron boards, irons & trivets, sock stretchers, buckets, stands, a folding bench ringer, washboards, brown glass Javex bottles and the list goes on....

I went to town this morning & on the way home I stopped at a florist shop-flowers ALWAYS make me feel good! and today being my 40th-I REALLY want to feel good! I specifically pointed to the oldest ones that were open & bruised with brown edges-I turned my head for a second and when I looked back I saw the girl was picking off the brown petals! I said "NO! I like them 'RUSTIC' looking"-she said "OKAY? that's a first!" and made a face-well I can't help it-I like them like that! So on the drive home I came to a realization-whenever I have the opportunity to purchase something for my home I prefer something with 'patina'- chips, cracks, flaws, worn but definitely something AGED. I find that is when something is most beautiful. I am like a lot of women who struggle with CHANGES as we age but in all reality I am SO loved within my home and they see me as beautiful-my issues are my own- SO I think it's best I try to let it go and embrace my own 'patina' and the imperfections I see in the mirror.
