Barn House Flea Market

If I ever write anything on time will be a miracle! My excuse, sometimes good times need time to breath like a fine wine! That is just how I feel about Jo, Jermonne and the Barn House.

Lynne, Heather and I spent a hot but great weekend on July 17 & 18 at their farm in Battleground. I was just along for the ride (what better excuse to hang out and shop for antiques) while they sold at the Barn House flea market.

Jo& Jermonne were so busy that I never got a picture of them, next time! We met a great family from Roseville, Ca. They own The Tattered House and they brought a yummy dessert and a breakfast cake that you can see Lynne licking further down the blog!

Heather and Lynne enjoy the amazing pot luck dinner the day before the show. Jermonne cooked a wonderful chicken on the BBQ and everyone brought something to share.

Cindy from Tarte had an amazing booth!! of course!

Lynne as cute as can be!!!

Ready to take your money!

I realise that I didn't take any pictures of the crowd. Well, I was to busy helping Lynne with sales. The day turned out great and we met wonderful people, new customers and regular customers.

Lynne, Lynne!
What ever shall I do with you!

Thank you Jo and Jermonne for an amazing weekend and for the invite. I slept well for my 4 hours!!
Thank you Lynne and Heather!!!!

2009 Street of Dreams preview

Chris and I delivered our product to unit 1001 this week and we got a peek of the almost finished penthouse. It looks amazing!! I will have finished pictures in the next few weeks before the opening on August 1st.

I found this great architectural mirror at the Spokane Farm Chicks show in June. I bought it from a very inspiring and beautiful woman who owns Chaps in Spokane.
Finished architectural mirror with crackle finish hanging up in the music room.

I happened to find this industrial table at a second hand store when I was out shopping with Lynne. It was covered with boxes and hidden by miscellaneous junk. Could this be what I was looking for? I was excited about the project and I knew I had only 2 weeks to finish it for Phyllis and the Street of Dreams but I believed I could get it done.

While cleaning the base I happened on the embossed label, "Old Chicago".

After 5 days of stripping, sanding, buffing, painting, cleaning and sealing! We placed the 1/2 beveled cut glass on top and yes! it was beautiful and Phyllis really liked it!!
