Saturday morning I sprang out of bed at 5 am! The day had finally come. I had read about it, heard about it, and today was the day I was going to get to see it with my very own eyes.
Barn House Sale. I had been wanting to go to one of their sales all spring and summer but things were just to busy. Today I was going hell or high water, dead or alive! The drive out was beautiful. None of us had ever been out to the Battle Ground area in Vancouver. It was a gorgeous fall day. The trees were beautiful, sun was shining and you couldn't have asked for a nicer day.
Yeah, I'm the dork with her eyes closed. It's my picture thing. Some people don't smile, some people always look beautiful, some people make faces. Me......I close my eyes!
This is the entry way. It was so inviting, you could see the beautiful food spread and lovely Mimosas from the parking lot. It really looked beautiful. Made you want to jump out of your car and run right up there!
The barn entrance. Spectacular!
I tried to get a good picture of the ceiling. It was really cool. Very woodsy, spooky and romantic all at the same time.
Loved the little test tubes hanging all over in the trees with mini pumpkins in them. Great idea!
We had a wonderful time! There were all kinds of other antique shows and craft shows in the area and we hit all of them. It was just fun to drive around and sight see. We even saw a camel standing in the middle of a field in the middle of no where. It was just so funny and odd all at the same time. Then we ventured up to Portland to Monticello Antique Marketplace for lunch and a little looksie. I had heard about this place and all it's fabulousness but had never been there so while I was so close I was going!
What a great place. One should put this on their list of MUST VISIT places in Portland Oregon. It's right off The 205 at Stark St. Super easy to find. We had lunch there with Joy and Sheila. The company was wonderful and the lunch was very good. Thank you Joy and Shelia for joining us we had so much fun visiting with you both of you.
Then it was the long drive back home. We chatted about politics, gossiped about high school classmates, talked about husbands, old boyfriends, and how our parents still drive us nuts and which homes we should think about putting them in. KIDDING!
I got home about 8 pm, tired, more sick then when I left and excited to tell The Hubs all about the trip. When I put down my handbag on the counter and looked downstairs to my shock and horror you will never guess what I saw.
Any guess of what The Hubs did all day unsupervised?
Stay tuned, tomorrow I'll show pictures......................
