Pickin' Barn Wood

Poor ole' guy.
He's old and falling apart.
At my age, I can understand that.


We gathered up some of the wood over the weekend.
Barn wood is not a new passion of mine.
I've obsessed over it for years...37 years to be exact.
It all started with a friend's barn back then. 
We picked the wood and made some projects.


So the obsession continues.
And so do the projects.

Just wondering...what do you think of barn wood?

Coming or Going



This looks like a good haul full of pickins' that is coming into our home. 
But actually, these items are going out.
But just temporarily.


There's a family wedding next month.
It will be a vintage affair and down on the farm.
How fun!


I told my nephew and his bride to be to come on over and shop my basement.
We had a good time while they enjoyed digging through the goodies we have stored.
By the time we were all finished, we had a good sized truck load.


I can't wait to see it all come together as they have some great ideas.
I'll take lots of pictures and I'll share them here. Promise.


But for now...have a pickin' cool weekend!

Hit or Miss


When you go pickin', it can be a hit or miss adventure. Ya never know.
Fortunately, this weekend was a hit.
Here's a peek...


And a little closer...


Fun stuff...


All for the shop...


Except for that big, beautiful, blue bottle in the crate.
I'm not keeping it for myself. It will be a gift.
You may call me crazy, but my granddaughter will be turning 1 next month.
I've been looking for a special bank for her before she was even born.
This will be perfect to house the change we give her.

She will have her first vintage piece.
I know I'd be thrilled if someone gave one to me for my birthday.
Wouldn't you want one?

Pickin' Season



It's almost here in full force! Pickin' season! Yes!
Spring weather is (almost) here so let the festivities begin and the treasures be found. 
Just wanted to show some goodies that we found recently.
We always have crates. I think we should have named our shop 'Crates R Us".
But I must say...I'm likin' those signs.

What about you?
Have you started any serious treasure hunting with the season now warming up?
