Barn Sale Dates (slight change!)

It is official:   Our Barn Sale will be this Saturday, June 23 and Sunday, June 24, both days from 8-4.   We have already started piling the stuff up; this is going to be one of the biggest sales we've ever had!    And we are pricing the stuff to sell; so make your plans to visit the Orient, Ohio area and look for signs on Ballah Road (off St. Rt. 62).

Garden Gala Fun!

The Circle-of-Caring's Garden Gala was last weekend and quite a success!   Unfortunately we didn't get there early enough to get the booth completely set-up before the crowd started pouring in.   We were selling the garden fancies faster than we could get them set-up; it became quite comical.

This was my last show for the year until the Christmas shows EXCEPT we are having a big Barn Sale at our home June 22 and 23!   Any leftover shabby garden creations will be drastically marked down, so you must come for some fantastic bargains!   

We'll also have the usual garage-sale stuff as well as a few old vintage metal garden chairs, some wicker chairs, etc.   I have a slew of things I've been hoarding in my basement that will come out of hiding to find a new home, so save the date!

More details will follow on this blog next week and maybe I'll do a little preview posting of some items!

Yet More Mason Jars

The mason jars decided to make yet one more appearance, as table decorations at my mothers 2nd wedding last month.   It was a very casual, backyard affair with just close family and friends and a beautiful day for a wedding.

Afterwards I continued to enjoy the decor on my own front porch.   Here a couple of jars sit on my new little brown table found at the flea market for just a few bucks.

I missed the daisies so much that I had to replace them with fake ones! ha!   Can't even tell, can ya?!

We've been enjoying some fantastic weather lately!   Sunny, no humidity, 70's!  My kind of weather!    It's really put me in the mood to decorate my front porch & patio.  

Here's a really cool old light fixture I dug out of my "someday" stash and hung on the front porch.  (We all have a "someday" stash, right?  That certain thing you're going to do something with "someday"?) 

It looks right at home there.  I just love it and can't believe I bought it, no lie, at least 9 years ago!

A cute little ladder holds a few plants (that I haven't transplanted yet):

Super-cute plantstand on the back patio:

Here's my 'garden' this year: a few tomato plants, rosemary & basil.  (The bench was a 'find' at my old neighbor's house.   Yes, he said I could have it.  geesh!)

And check out this old galvanized little garbage pail.   I saw it at a flea market, thought it was very cool, asked the price, $5.00, said I'd think about and started to walk away but then I heard Mike Wolfe's voice in my head (the guy from American Pickers) and he said "the time to buy it is when you see it", so I made a bee-line right back and snatched it up before someone else could.

My initial plan was to put flowers in it but the lid doesn't open wide enough, so it will just be a little stand for now.

Well, for all you locals, the Circleville Circle-of-Caring Garden Gala is this weekend with lots of beautiful gardens open for touring.   I've heard the gardens this year are located right in Circleville and there will be vendors at most locations.   I'm going to be a vendor on Sunday-only from 1-6 and not sure what house I'll be at yet but if you take the tour, you're bound to run into me!   Hope to see you there!
