This was our second Christmas Extravaganza "Down On The Farm" It is the only show I do
inside our house and the barn. My other shows are in the barn only. The question I get asked many times is,"Isn't this a lot of work?
To tell you the truth, it is a lot of work...... and EXHAUSTING I might add! But..... I really do enjoy it so much! Especially when I watch the excitement and the anticipation on my customers faces as they come come through the front door.
So in case you were not here..... take a peak and see what you missed!
It was an absolutely gorgeous balmy day as the 4:00 hour approached. We opened the doors at 4:00 sharp and soon the house was bustling with excited customers running from room to room taking it all in. Decisions had to be made quickly to "Buy it or not" if you thought you could go to the barn and think it over and then come back into the house and think it would still be there...... well let me tell you, there was a lot of disappointment when the item was no longer there!
4:00..... everything is in place and time to open
We sold several of these bird houses. They stand approx. 3 feet tall. We happen to still have this one. It can be yours for only $99.00
This side table is still available and it has a twin. $49.00 each
This Wicker set was displayed in the barn. It was not sold during the show but.... several inquiry's have been made about it in the past several days. If interested let me know as soon as possible!! (it is in great condition and very sturdy)
Vintage Wrought Iron Bed Sorry...... SOLD!!!!
Not only do we have furniture but some really cool vintage coats as well!
I still have several of these very unique and different mirrors for only $29.00. Unique in the fact that they have number on all 4 sides. Great for kids rooms or a family room.
Through out the show we were constantly moving furniture. Either loading it in trucks, or cramming it in cars or just moving it to another spot to fill a vacant hole.
More items in the barn
This table is still looking for a place to call home. It's
a drop leaf and perfect for seating a few more guests during the holidays
More items in the barn that were sold
These 2 little guys were just way to cute. So much for shopping when there were eggs to be gathered. They took the eggs home for breakfast the next morning.
This vanity was handcrafted by a local furniture maker. It is still here and it sits in my family room. I may just decide to keep it for myself. I absolutely love it. You might still be able to twist my arm and I might........... well, maybe sell it.
Even the bathroom was a shopping destination!
A bit of shabby chic going on here ????? Very cool!
This was one of my favorite pieces!!! Sorry......SOLD!
By the looks of things, 3 happy customers!!!
Should I or not......

You will probably never see another desk quite like this one. Vintage LADIES HOME JOURNAL magazine pages cover the top of this desk. Better yet, it is all protected under glass!!!
This was the 3rd day. Each night I would redo the rooms to fill in vacant spots and bring in new pieces. So if you were here one day and came back the next day, Most likely it had a different look. That was the fun part for me. I love to change furniture around. My hubby never knows where the sofa is going to be when he gets home from work!! Or where the bed is going to land up at. Oh well.....
Even though my Mom was in a lot of pain on this particular day, she insisted on helping me. Several days after the show she had surgery. Thanks Mom!!!
So now I will put my paint brush to rest until after Christmas and enjoy some time off. Off to more inportant things at hand..... Christmas shopping, entertaining, baking cookies, having coffee with friends, spending time with family, baby sittng my grandkids, date night with hubby, etc.........
