New finds in the shop

Well it has been a busy week! I got a lot of the finds into the shop.The wicker chair got the makeover.

I made the sign above the fireplace live,laugh, and love.

Got the red dresser into the shop and love how it looks. It is already sold though.

I'am throwing around the idea of opening an etsy store. I have a couple ideas for small items to sell on there what do you all think?
Mr.Shabby Nest and I took a bike trip over to Galena IL. One of my favorite places to visit! Although not sure I would ride that far again paying for it still today! Getting old sucks! LOL Traci

Junkers paradise!

The barn loaded with wonderful things!
This weekend I went to the Barn Bonanza! It was organized by two gals who are super creative. It was held at Deb's house in the country. It truly was paradise for junkers! She had a barn full of stuff,a junk pile in the back you could dig through and another area by another smaller barn where there were picket fences,odds and ends anything you could want! It was truly a junkers dream! There were booths set up with all kinds of goodies and the barn was open with lot of wonderful things to be bought for wholesale. My senses were on overload!
A few of the booths you could find stuff really reasonable!

I couldn't resist this wonderful buggy! I'm keeping it!

I found this little unusual piece at  a yard sale before heading to the barn!

I adored this seed box! Also keeping it!I

I snagged this red dresser and I will be selling it in the shop.
The lamp below was a yard sale find.

 Loved this hutch top now need to find a piece to put it on!

This shutter corner shelf just called to me so I grabbed it think it will fit in nice at the shop. I got the shabby white table too!

This little beauty not sure what it is but it's mine now I plan on setting on patio with candles in it.

Cute little case!

This piece I think I will try to sell as a wine cabinet it is just so different cause it opens from the front and back.

Wicker chair will be getting a little makeover.

This is in my yard hubby had the fire engine sitting in the attic and I made him drag it down.

This harvest table was at the barn sale.

I actually swooned when I saw this bench but some one had snagged it up!

Almost forgot where else but in Iowa can you go to a barn sale and there is a pig running around? He was put up though after harassing the caterer! I met so many nice people all with the same passion! I can't wait til the next one! Traci
