Last Friday I got the opportunity to go do a bit of ‘Pickin’ in a couple of old barns. Something that I have dreamed of for quite some time.
If you missed the post and would like to read it, click here:
It was two of my friends, (Joyce and Kathy’s) Aunt Pat that lined us up for our ‘Pickin’ adventure.
Before we got started we visited Pat’s home. I just had to share it with you.
It’s a small home of only 975 sq. feet. Don’t let that fool you. Inside are treasures galore!
If you think the outside is cute. . .
Wait till you see inside. It definitely lives up to “good things come in small packages.”
When I first walked in, this darling scene caught my eye. Love that red basket! Did you notice the bead board ceiling? Dreaming of doing that in my bedroom.
It didn’t stop there. The pegboard ran clear across the wall with an assortment of the most delightful little chairs.
She is a true recycler. She bought this settee for a great price and then had it recovered. I didn’t get a good picture, but her coffee table is an old incubator. She cut the legs down. I just happen to have one of these in my unfinished basement. Might have to do the same.
Her living room was darling, but her kitchen was to DIE for!
Look at this small Hoosier. I couldn’t get enough of it. It’s red and white, need I say more? She had so many treasures in this little space. I just kept snap, snap, snapping.
This one is on my list of: Things I have GOT to do. Don’t you just love it?
Love that original green paint on the windows!
Isn’t this kitchen just the cutest thing you ever did see?
The Family Room is next.
And finally, her bedrooms. One down and two up.
I especially loved her collection of old toys.
I hope you enjoyed your visit as much as I did. She was the sweetest lady. Her entire house delighted me, but oh that kitchen; I just can’t stop thinking about it.
Before I go, did you notice that now I have over 100 followers?
I just want to say “Thank You”. I have had so much fun sharing and meeting with new people here in blogland.
I am working on a project for a give-away. Throwing a bridal shower next week, and making projects for it also. I should have the give-away ready by the 30th.
I will be sharing this post with:
