It's Over

I had my final day of the Country Lane Treasures Christmas Sale yesterday.
Overall I did well and am pleased with the outcome. I think this is the last sale here at the barn.
I might do some shows next season but we're going to be getting out of the furniture.
It's hard to transport furniture and also awkward and heavy. We're going to continue selling
more unique and smaller items at Christies and maybe some other outdoor sales.
Something to work on for the new year. I'm happy to be able to still attend auctions and to be able to "treasure hunt". I love doing this. Also hubbie and I enjoy doing the auctions and sales together.
So we'll see what the new year holds.
 I've been playing around with For the sale I posted on different Facebook pages and tried to change the picture with the info each time I posted to make it interesting. I enjoy that. It's pretty simple to figure out, which is what I need. Give it it a try sometime.

Sneak Peak of the Barn and Decorating Tips

This set of 3 ceramic jars would add a nice touch to any shelf.

These sherry glasses were a set of 4, till someone broke one. Now they are a set of 3 tealight holders!

 A glass vase wrapped with a burlap bow, filled with pinecones and acorns.

An array of items makes up this interesting display.

A plaid scarf can add a great accent for your Christmas decorations.

Use that silver platter that has been put away to display your favourite things.

Dig out a vintage pedestal glass bowl and fill it with funky wire balls.

Pinecones and wicker baskets always give you a wintery feel.

Mix old with new.

Do it! : )

Love your milk glass collection? Incorporate it into your Christmas decor.

Lots of traditional reds and greens.

A great old piece.

Gather glassware and group it together placing it on an old scarf.

Fill a pretty bowl with pinecones, ornaments and cinnamon.

Since old suitcases were made popular, they are really hard to find. Use picnic baskets instead.

If you have only 1 picnic basket put it on a table and add fun accessories.

Ornaments atop your placesetting add a nice touch.
                       I hope that you will be able to come to the Barn Sale. I'd love to see you!

Fall~Part 2

I just can't get enough of the beauty of the fall colours.
This past weekend, hubbie and I closed up the trailer to prepare for winter.
It was quite cool but very cosy and the colours were absolutely stunning!!!
I kept on taking picture after picture. I was even holding the camera out the window to try and capture the beauty surrounding me. No, I wasn't driving. After our two night stay we celebrated Thanksgiving with the family which I am so very thankful for. God is good!

Not a very exciting title for this post but I couldn't think of just  a few words to describe my love of fall. I love the coziness of fall, getting out my warm clothing, slippers and my thicker comforter for the bed. At the same time I can still have the window open in the day. It's so nice to come into my room in the late afternoon and smell the fresh, cool air.  I especially love the beautiful colours that God has painted in the forests and in the sunrises and sunsets and the flowers (weeds) that are  blooming on the sides of the roads. Of course pumpkins, gourds and fall mums have to be mentioned too. I wish at times that I could be able to paint what I see, I can't so instead I take pictures of the things I love. Just with my point and shoot camera but hey it works for me.
