Not going to bore you with a lot of blah, blah, blah today, because frankly, I'm kinda short on time. Just wanted to let you know that Sharon and I are SO EXCITED for you to see the fruits of our labors.  We have worked hard....really hard.... to bring you a beautiful feast for your eyes at the spring sale. I hope you love the furniture and accessories as much as we do.  We have a ton of spring d├ęcor, furniture, and yes, primitives, too. 

The sale starts this Thursday at 5pm with our Sneak Peek and Purchase evening.  We will be charging $5 admission, with all of the proceeds of admission being donated to the American Cancer Society.  We'll be offering sweet treats and lemonade to all, plus a reuseable shopping bag for the first 50 customers to check out.  Those of you that come on Thursday evening will get to be the first to see (and buy!) what we've been so excited about. A lot of inventory goes out the door on that first evening, and we think it's worth making the trip out on our first day.

If you can't make it on Thursday, or you prefer a shopping experience with less crowds and less wait at the checkout, rest assured that we have a load of inventory.  We'll do some rearranging, and you won't know what you missed!  We are open from 9am until 5pm both Friday and Saturday.  We have 40 - that's right, 40 vendors lined up for Saturday.  If you've ever been at the sale when we have vendors, you know what a party it is!!!

I really, really hope you can come for a visit this weekend.  We feel blessed to have so many wonderful members of our barn sale family, and we love what we do!  It's loads of work, but loads of fun, too!!!

We have been working diligently preparing the stalls in the barn for the sale, coming up in 10 short days, and we CAN'T WAIT for you to see what we've been up to. Since Sharon and I both LOVE primitives, I thought I would start off with a taste of what we have to offer in our primitive area, which is downstairs.  I know it doesn't look very much like spring, but it's been a LONG winter!  And I think this area is coming along splendidly,  just needs some smalls added in to brighten things up.

If bright and springy is what you are looking for, never fear!  We have loads of bright spring colors, as well as plenty of pastels for those of you that prefer the softer shades.  We've been painting up a storm, and also had help from our sweet friend, Jessica, getting things ready to go. 

Sharon went to the fabric store and has been recovering seats with the best of them....

The wedding area, which is usually all burlap and rustic, has a central focus that's far from burlap...Imagine this dressy little loveseat as a prop for your pictures!

Speaking of dressy, we have not one, not two, but three (and maybe a fourth if the painting gets done!) beautiful servers, sideboards, buffets... whatever you prefer to call them.  We have a white one, a cream one, and a blue one.  Not even going to show you pictures because you NEED to see them in person!!!  A style for every taste, from Victorian to country.

I know I have been absent from the blog world for quite a while....welcomed a second grandchild, beautiful (looks just like her Momma) Sloane Elizabeth is all fresh and new, just 9 days old today.  Really hoping I can interest one of my grandchildren in being a part of the barn sale happiness at some point....maybe Sloane or Asher will like to paint!  Sharon already has Logan attending sales with her at a little over a year old!

Will try to get back to you before the sale.  Don't forget, the dates are next Thursday, the 24th of April from 5-9 pm where we will offer a sneak peek (and purchase, too!) for $5 per person, and all of the proceeds from admission will be donated to the American Cancer Society.  Then on Friday, admission is free, and we will be open from 9am until 5pm.  Saturday will be a special day, with 25 plus vendors set up in and around the open farm shed in addition to our offerings inside the barn.  Admission is free on Saturday, too, and the hours are form 9am until 5pm.

Hope you have a great day!
