Do You Believe in Fate?

After I ran some errands and went to one not-so-great garage sale on Thursday morning, I decided to visit a favorite antique mall that I haven't been to in awhile. I found a few little treasures there--nothing too exciting, but sorta fun! But, while I was checking out they had a few brochures and fliers on upcoming sales and events. One flier in particular caught my eye---It said "Barn Sale" ~ and it started the next day!! Well, needless to say I was intrigued and pumped!!!!! So I headed out the next morning and while getting ready I kept saying "don't forget the camera...don't forget the camera"!! Yeah, you guessed it--I forgot my camera!! So I had to take alot of "after" pictures!! Of course the locale of this barn sale was a beautiful country scene with a driveway that dipped down invitingly with tall shade trees all over the lawn!! Arghh!! But I guess my new reasoning is--if you forget your camera, the sale will be fabulous!!! Here is a bunch of great stuff still in my van! Wonderful vintage Christmas, a beautiful Eastlake mirror and fun men's straw hat!!
You know how much I love pincushions! I found this super-duper old lady to add to my collection! Do you think her face is creepy? I love her anyway!!
I love primitives ~ especially farm items. This cow from a weather vane was calling my name--LOUDLY!!!

Looks great with my other prims and my piggy weather vane on a lightning rod!

And then I found some fun.......

and games!!

I love all the little game pieces ~ wondering if they are all from the same game??

When I spotted this little piece of architecture--I knew I had to have it!!

I LOVE the chippy blue paint and the flower motif!!!!!

Looks amazing above my little aqua cubbie!!

Sets right ahead of my computer so I can look at it all I want!!

So to make a L-O-N-G story short, I am so glad I chose that particular mall to head to that day!! Otherwise I would never have seen the ad for that barn sale!!

I love "happy accidents" don't YOU ?!?

Happy hunting!!

  6. It's good to follow your "gut" on sales. Hubby and I went out on Saturday and didn't think anything sounded that "great"...we could have stayed home..okay..he did find some old toys..otherwise not much!
