Barn market finds

 When we moved into this house last October, I put a “Welcome” sign that I had over the kitchen fireplace because it fit the spot well, and I was really just trying to get stuff out of boxes. But I never loved it there, it was ok, but nothing great.

Since then I have been looking for just the right thing, but it wasn’t a priority. Sure, I have seen some really great things, but since I only work 2 days per week doing window displays, my decorating budget is tight. So, I was really happy to find some new wall art this weekend at a Barn Market sale in town, for a great price.

One of the vendors had been using these in her home, but was purging to prepare for a move ( I could totally relate), they are vintage reprints she bought at a shop in Connecticut. I don’t mind telling you I only paid $50 for the set.

They really brighten up the room and I think they will work all year ( I will probably only change them out for Christmas). And the Ironstone pitchers stand out much better now with the colors behind them.

There is a nice distressing on the frames too.

For the kitchen, I also picked up hand full of vintage silver flatware. This was a splurge, but I love them.

For our Den, which has a slightly masculine style, I bought this beautiful vintage electric wall sconce,

I saw it and couldn’t pass it up. I think it was about $45.

And some vintage bottles to add to a few I already had, that I was given by a family member years ago.

Some where inexpensive, others, not so much.

These are the new bottles;

All in all, a successful day at the market. Hope y’all are having a great weekend too!
