White Wednesday on Thursday~Barn House Sneak Peek

I see that I have been absent on this here blog.  The days are getting away from me and some days  I can’t even remember what day it is. As you already know, I’m knee deep in getting my goodies together for the big Barn House sale coming up on the 30th.  Can’t tell you how excited I am.  Got lots done, but as usual, there are a million little things that need finishing up.

What I haven’t mentioned here before is this.  I’m going on a trip the day after the Barn House sale.  A big trip to jolly ol’ England.  Quite awhile ago, Isabel mentioned to me that her youngest daughter was going to soccer camp in England and did I want to go along to keep her company while her daughter was at camp?  Silly question, of course I did! So, flights are booked and our London accommodations are booked too, but we haven’t really decided where exactly we will be for the rest of our visit.  Flying into Manchester and hope to check out some lovely English villages and maybe even stumble upon a car boot sale or some other fun junking adventure.  It’s kind of nice not having everything planned.

With all that said, we would love any recommendations you might have for places to stay, must not miss places to visit, etc. This is my first visit to England and I am super excited as you can imagine.

Okay, enough of that.  You probably want to see some pictures, right? Okay, here are a few White Wednesday on Thursday photos for your viewing pleasure.

Found two extra large funeral baskets at Goodwill on two different occasions.  I find these from time to time, but never this big.

A sweet little white tattered baby dress. So much cuter in person.

And finally, a little before and after makeover. Found this cute vintage buffet at a thrift store awhile ago. It’s a nice size for a smaller space.

Here’s the after.

I gave it a little shabby look.  Love the arched piece on the back and the original pulls.  Had to add the sparkly glass knobs to the long drawer as there was one missing and the other was messed up.  I think it turned out pretty cute.

Well, better get busy on those one million things I still need to do.  I’ll be back with some more sneak peaks of Barn House goodies. TTNF!

That buffet is *very* cute - love the size. I'm trying to get it all together for AVG as well. Sadly, no trip to England the next day for me.
:-) Wish I could see you on the
30th at BH - have a great time!
