Another Year

Well a year has passed(almost) since I've closed the store.
It's been a year of reflection, of pondering, of wondering.
(They have almost all the same meaning. LOL)
I started out in my location, "our barn" with a 3 week sale in the spring.

It went well. Hubby and my boys pulled it together and made it a welcoming
place to sell my wares, complete with my tree. Over the summer we continued
to go to auctions and stock up on our furniture. I continued to "treasure hunt"

Oh yeah, I almost forgot the infamous Wing Ding. The washout! 
Believe it or not I'm going to give it a try again in May.
In September, Hubby and I set out to the Christie Sale in Dundas loaded to the rafters!

We enjoyed the show and we had awesome weather. 
We will return in May and give it another try. 

We learned that some people actually stay overnight in their vehicles or trailers.
I don't think we're that adventurous!

To end the year we had our Christmas Sale. It was held for 3 weekends.

I love decorating and setting up for Christmas. It has a cozy and warm feeling. year we'll see what awaits me. I've been checking out a few options.
Kind of exciting. Till then. Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!

I Love Fall

I think Fall is one of my favourite times of the year.
I can't get enough of the beautiful colours that are abounding in the leaves all around.
I love the smells of autumn and the feel of a warm sweater on a cool evening.
We had an exceptionally warm week, last week. It was amazing!
We even had our Thanksgiving dinner outside amongst the leaves that were falling from the trees.
It was a wonderful day with my family. I have so much to be thankful for. I am truly blessed!
My mom and dad. Love them.

The awesome view from the Huntsville Lion's Lookout.

Me and my hubbie.

A pretty spot along the path of my walk this week.

Love barns.

A perfect yellow leaf.

Even weeds are beautiful.

My lovely family.

Some dried hydrangeas from our garden.

What's fall without gourds.

                 Christie's Antique Sale Results
We had a great day at the sale. For one the weather was absolutely perfect. Hubbie and I ended up making 2 trips to the sale, one on Friday night with a load and back again on Saturday morning with a car load and truck load. We left at 4:40am on Saturday!!! The sale opened at 8:00am, I happened to go to the office to ask a few questions, passing by the main gate at 7:45 and there were about 50 people waiting to get in! On Friday, we just dropped off our load, wrapped a tarp around it and left. So on Saturday we had  alot of work ahead of us. Mind you I love to set up the displays. A lady even complimented me on our booth. Being our first sale I was flattered. We did well as far as the sales went. Many "smalls" sold(check out my previous post on smalls). No dressers sold which made me nervous thinking that we wouldn't be able to fit everything in our vehicles for our return trip home. But Dan being the master packer did it!! I was so proud of him. We really enjoyed ourselves and will hopefully return in May for the next sale.
Dan the Man

My cute visitors with Santa who by the way was $3000!!!

He knows how to do it.

A hello from my Uncle Henry and Aunt Dea. So nice to see them.
