barn house - the flea































I am not sure I can come up with words to describe how incredible this past weekend was. Thus, as I want to share some of my photos with you as soon as possible, I will post some of them now, and post more with my write up on the weekend soon!

Honestly, SO. WONDERFUL.

xo

Oh, except a couple of things...

J & J are the most magnificent of hosts, and I am not sure magnificent is a big enough word to get the sentiment across.

There really was something for EVERYONE at this sale - the vendors were incredible.  I PROMISE to have the links to all of the vendors who have sites and who gave me their cards tomorrow.  Pinky promise.

Somehow, I am missing some of the photos I took...  I am also missing a camera - this camera to be exact:




It is the Wales Reflex on the right.  If anyone has seen it, I beg of you, please let me know so I can find a way to get it back!  I bought it the morning of the sale and it has gone missing... (insert pitiful tears here)

Update: I am thrilled to report that the fabulous Joe found my camera this morning!  One more thing to thank those boys for~

OK, I was already head over heels for Barn House {gazing at them on blogs from afar in California} but your pictures have sent me over the top! Honestly, I think you've captured the day better than they did, sorry boys! Your photography is amazing. I hope you don't mind i'm going to copy a couple pictures and credit them back to you and include you in my upcoming "birds of a feather" post... these pictures are too good to miss!

Take care,
Kari

I'm Julia said...

I see some things that take my breath away... ! Surely some kind soul will find & return your camera.

Clarity said...

Dear Mimi, thank you for your lovely comment on "Listening". It stuck with me as I pondered it.

Your Barn weekend looks gorgeous, they look like "my people" too, the neutrals, the rustic, the wood. It was dreamy, even down to those gorgeous framed bottles.

I collect old cameras too and hope you retrieve this one. Have a lovely, lovely weekend. You deserve it.

Susan said...

ooooh you got some good pics! :) I hope you got as many awesome things as I did! :)

If I'd have been there ( I wish ) I would have had to pinch myself to see if I was dreaming....heaven...absolute heaven...we don't have such good flea markets in the U.K. so I'm soooo jealous....Hope you get your camera back. XXXX

You are the most adorable sweet photographer in all of puppet land, thank-you so much for including my goofy cakes in with all those beauteous shots.

Hope to see you again, Lulu

Alicia @ boylerpf said...

Fantastic! I oogled over so many things in the pictures. My pocket book thanks you for showing them to me..if I was there, it would be empty!

robinbird said...

kim i was so looking forward to coming by a visit today :) your blog is so pretty, all white and many pastel photos. and such variety to choose from! food, antiques, your art and your photography which is fabulous, friends, your beautiful boys!

your photos from the sale...i have to say i love your eye for the details. all that silver, pewter and white you found! my favorites are the three little salt shakers in a stepped up row and the vintage canister set. such perfect focus!

i don't have adequate command of descriptive language to say how much fun it was to meet and hang out with you and tiffany this weekend. You were so welcoming, friendly and funny. I definitely plan to take you up on your suggestion that we meet somewhere between to take a photo walk.... how about if you suggest some time in september since i know your august is completely booked already. i am so looking forward to the next opportunity to see you!

Barn House said...

OMG...did my pictures get "dissed" on your blog?? LOL :o) Actually, I must agree with Kari...you captured some incredible shots! Thank you for being here and taking such great care of us and our friends that were such an essential part of the success of this show.

How special our grocery store run was, right??!!! Thanks for keeping me on track...and thanks for being one of our highlights of this incredible weekend. We miss you already...

J & J

Kimberly said...

I am so glad it was all you thought it would be!! I am still so jealous and continue to live it through you, so keep those photos coming! Not only did I miss this wonderful show, but the Carolyn Westbrook show at her plantation here in my own back yard. I was off to retreve a child from camp in Arkansas (sadly my oldest picked up another week of counseling at the camp...I won't have him home until the 2nd week of August). Lovely Pictures!!! xoxo kim

Auntie Joy said...

Hi Kim or would you rather I call you Mimi?
I have a hard enough time with keeping names straight and then I have all the blog names to remember too?? Well my sweet Kim I will always remember yours and I am so very happy that we could spend enough time together to get acquainted. It was an amazing weekend and I know the
BH Boys appreciated having you there lending a willing and able hand. I am anxious to see the rest of your photos and I am so glad Joe found your camera. Remember I had a camera crisis of my own... I had locked it in the truck so I wouldn't loose it...
JOY!
