Asher Hill Barn Sale... Teasers and Textures

I kinda left you all cliff hanging last time. I showed you what Brownie got, but I didn't show you what I got at the Lucketts Spring Market last weekend. Well here it is:

From left to right and then clockwise: Jenny Lind pattern tea cup and saucer, a German scrub brush for plant pots (or dishes) and some matte finish Tough Coat sealer from Miss Mustard Seed, three old skeleton keys, and under everything is the vintage copy of Alice in Wonderland I scored for my sister's office make over.

Have I told you guys that I am redesigning my sister's house right now? Well I am and it is my favorite project ever! But that is several other posts from now. So you all are just gonna have to wait.Today we are still talking bout barn sales.

The Asher Hill Farm Barn Sale, to be exact. 

This coming Friday, Saturday, and Sunday
June 3-4-5th
at Asher Hill Farm
4580 Sudley Road, Gainesville VA 20155

I spent all week last week over there painting and sanding and hauling and looking and prepping stuff. You guys wanna see what a barn sale looks like the week before the show? Nothing is styled yet, so I thought I'd just give you guys some "textures"

Jeff, Margaret's master wood worker of a husband has been busy building cool stuff for you guys. Here are some dinner bells he made out of acetylene tanks and some really beautiful wood.

And here is a reproduction wooden milk bottle holder he made. I think there are going to be two or three for sale in the show. They are so crazy solid. You could bathe your dog in them...well maybe not, but they are built to take a beating. And I think they have another layer or two of color coming.

See the copper table top next to it? Here 's a better pic:

There are several patinas to choose from. These are all going on top of various bases, mostly metal, like antique iron sewing machine tables. Super cool stuff. And any anything Jeff builds will last for generations. The man is a perfectionist and a true craftsman.

This is another sample of his work. Not the carving, but the rehab. He pieced together this huge antique mirror (It is seriously huge, probably 3 ft x 5 ft) and reinforced it to last another 100 years. 

I gave it back it's gilding. It took a while. Like 4-5 hours. Wanna see?

I am in love with how this turned out. If you want to know how I did it, you're gonna have to come to the show and ask me.

Speaking of the show, here's the details again: 

So I told you I've been doing some painting. 
Here's a few teaser pics of some things I've been working on:

That's all I have pics of right now. If you're lucky, I'll have time to shoot a few more beauty shots of me and Margaret's stuff and post them before the show. if not, you'll just have to come see how they turned out in person. 

But let's go back to the textures. I love how they turned out!

Sigh. So much good stuff. This is just a fraction of it. 

And it's not just love from me and Margaret. 
There are a bunch more awesome vendors coming. 
Here are the links to their pretty photos:


So come and check us out this weekend! 
We will be there rain or shine, so think sunny thoughts, kay?
