Burlap, Business cards and Bathtubs.

There was only minimal eye-rolling with each request.

"Don't argue-just do it."

I have a vision.


to Miss Gracie's and Friends

Vintage Barn Sale

This was my outdoor space

~Before the rain~

Ember came and set it up for me.

She did a great job.

Just like I knew she would.

Thanks, Ember.

It was a great sale.

We did about 2 months of work in 2 weeks.

A true family effort.

Now, back to normal family life.

I wish so much that I lived near enough to come to your barn sales. ALL of these pics are such VISIONS...like being in a fairytale, surrounding by all your favorite shabby chic things. I don't know how you sell it!!!! To see it all go would cause me to burst out into tears.

Ember's display of your outdoor items is dreamy. I just love that name, Ember...a heart always burning for God.

Maybe if you fluff up a little spot somewhere with some of your favorite beautiful things...like how you made it all so lovely for the sale, but this time do it for you to recover in. A place of retreat to sit in and rest and reflect in thanksgiving over these past two busy weeks. Just a thought!

Happy mama's day to you dear one. You are an extravagant mama!!!

Gorgeous, Rene'! You have beautiful treasures and a knack for making it all look beautiful together. If only we could have combined our treasures in a flea/barn sale together! We would have so much fun!
