The older the better

Good Morning Ladies, hope your enjoying your Friday and are looking forward to a wonderful weekend.  I know I am. 

Instead of doing my weekly roundup today, I thought I would share something that I love antiques, and junk treasures.  As most of you know, if you have been reading my blog for awhile or even just surfing the pages, you realize I have a thing for things of old.

My hubby and I love to scour new “junk, um, I mean treasure ” stores, and a couple a weeks ago we found a gold mine.  I am in love with this place, it is three floors of pure heaven for a girl like me, well and my bf too. 

This is a old barn, that the owner is redoing from top to bottom all by himself.  It’s still got a ways to go, but it’s incredible inside with all the exposed beams, and new wide plank flooring. 


Look at the front of this place, all the chairs and goodies, just begging for some TLC, or maybe some paint.  {wink}


How cool is this sign, I need one like it to put on my front porch.   teehee


Loving all those old crates (my mind automatically when to the pantry remix that was done at The House of Smiths) and what about the carpenters tote there on the ground.  Lovin it, lovin it!  And all the things I could do with it.   I think hubby saw the smoke coming out of my ears, with the way my brain was working overtime.  He got me out of there quickly considering I already have several, this is what one of them looks like in my house now….btw, this is a small inventory of my rolling pins that I have been collecting for several years, and my rule of thumb is NEVER pay more than 5 bucks.  Most of them I picked up for 1 or 2 dollars. 


One of weakness is anything that has to do with a kitchen or pottery, specially some crocks.  I wanted to take them all home, unfortunately the checkbook wouldn’t allow that, nor would the space in my house.  But if…..I had a big ole farmhouse, just sayin….

20100909_6 I have a passion for bringing new life to old things, that are seasoned with time, and if only they could talk, the stories they could tell with the things they have seen through the years. 

I ran across this old antique cupboard (while daydreaming online one afternoon), and I fell in love with it.  Again, I am drawn to the old meeting the new.  How cool would this be to have in your house? Again, my mind started working overtime. I want this cupboard in my house….And I think it goes well with granite countertops too.  What ya think?


I hope you enjoyed your visit with me today, and hope you will stop in again real soon, I plan on sharing all kinds of wonderful autumny (is that a word, or a Cindyism) things in upcoming post.  Stay tuned!

Have a blessed weekend!

  3. Hi Cindy, I am so glad you are feeling better, and there is no better medicine than being in a barn full of antiques with you BF. lol. Just please next time take me.

    I enjoyed all of these antiques, especially the rolling pins of yours, My love of antiques began many years ago, and now that I am an antique I have even more of an appreciation for them. lol.
    Enjoy your weekend.

  4. Hi Cindy:

    Dropped in to wish you a happy beginning of the week. I used to love going to antique and "junk" stores LOL! What's somebody else's junk could turn out to be my treasure I used to say. Have a lovely day my friend. Hugs

  5. Hi Cindy! LOVED catching up with you here tonight (or early morning, seeing as it's past 1am now). I had to smile when I pictured you in the store full of 'treasures'. My brother would have loved that store...he loved 'treasures' too, Each time I see an antique, I think of him.

    Guess what girl...I started keeping a list! I am sold now...I just LOVE the feeling I get when I get to check something off! Honestly, I think I accomplish twice as much now. I don't want to put things off, because I want to make my check. :-)

    Love you Cindy. Look so forward to you sharing your Fall home. Hugs!

  6. I AM RIGHT THERE WITH YOU ON THIS ONE!!! I could spend hours, DAYS in antique stores!! :) Love the pics you posted!
