Barn House Virgin

I don't ever wake up early. Ever. 8am is early for me, by the way. But I work at 2pm everyday, and well, I like to sleep. Anyway, today was different. I was up at 4:30am. My eyes burned. BAD. But it was totally worth it, because I went to my first Barn House event! My friend Eva and I made the 3 and a half hour drive to get their bright and early and I'm so glad we did. Stuff was flying outta there! We made about 5 laps, each time picking up a different treasure. I only missed out on one thing I wanted--a little whale, that I am still thinking about! Here are a few pics of the day. Some great ideas that I'm going to duplicate. My treasures tomorrow! :)

Definitely worth burning eyes. Can't believe this was Battle Ground! Here I was near there in June D: I always have bad timing. Love the lockers & the skirted bench; chickens too!

Divine! Those burlap number pillows are tdf! And those little metal drawers that look like they came from a card catalog in the library.

I am so glad you came out to see BH! Isn't it just incredible???

Next month is another must see. Linda & Ludmil of Willownest will be there. They use to live in Washougal & had events like BH. That is where I met Joe & Jermonne. Linda & Ludmil are all our mentors. They will be bringing some fab stuff from the great flea market state of Texas.

Hope to see you there!
