Junk in the Yard [Sale]

I spent this past weekend in Thomasville, NC at The Junk Ranch for my first show! Boy, was it beautiful out there!! Out in the country, peaceful and quiet, and the property was beautiful. The house and barns are about 20 years old, but look like they've been around since 1850! Complete with horses, farm dogs, and the smell of horses, the days were relaxing. (Minus the loading, unloading, and reloading!)

Friday was HOT and SUNNY and my fair skin just wasn't havin' it. It's Tuesday and my poor shoulders are starting to blister now. Saturday kept most of the company away with its rain. But, it was just nice to be out new friends, catch up with old ones, take sneak peeks of Angie's (the owner at The Junk Ranch) kitchen every time I went to the restroom, lust over other people's junk, admire all the items for vintage rentals, and buy some of Angie's absolutely delicious smelling candles!

Well, on with the show! Here are a few pictures of my first set up at a show!

My next show is June 1 in Historic Bethania, NC. Any advice for it?

Our House

is a very, very, very fine house
With two [dogs] in the yard
Life used to be so hard
Now everything is easy
'Cause of you
-Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

Well, as of April 30 we are officially out of the apartment! We've been staying in the new house for about a week now, but it's tight in here with all the boxes! I managed to snap some pictures before we loaded her up! There is a lot to do, but it'll be a nice journey!

The mantle is the first thing you see as you walk in the door. I cannot wait to have it decorated!

This is to the right of the mantle, where our couches will be.

To the left of the mantle, our tv is here now. We're hoping to get a desk where that open door is.

Our dining room, complete with a bug bomb (the little orange can). Just a precaution, one of our dogs has VERY sensitive skin.

The kitchen. I'm hoping to find some pieces to use as make-shift counters. And of course, the exit sign must go. This use to be an antique store.

Our bedroom.

The linen hall.


 This is the second bedroom, and is our closet.

This is the closet in the closet. It's the only actually closet in the house! Eeek!

Since this is a rental, we of course, don't want to make a huge investment. But, we are planning to be here awhile, so we want to make it an enjoyable space to live. So, we've moved from Crane Farms "The Apartment Years" to Crane Farms "The Cottage Years." Let's see what fun is to be had now!
