Sue's Country Barn Tour

It's that time of the year again for Sue's Country Barn sale.  I can't believe it's been three years since I wandered over to our neighboring town to visit the barn.  Sue opens twice a year for a short two week period, then she spends the next several months gathering treasures for the next opening.  You can see pictures from my last visit in October 2011 here and April 2011 here.  I didn't make it over to the barn until the third day of the sale, but there was still plenty to see.

Don't you love that rustic Sears Roebuck box?  The blue chest of drawers it's sitting on grabbed my attention also.

Enjoy the tour.  I'll try not to talk too much:-)


This is the view when you walk through the front door.  Notice the sun shining right through the barn walls?   This explains the white blobs and lines in some of these pictures.

This rusty metal cabinet full drawers had to be my favorite item in the barn this time.  Unfortunately I had to leave it behind because it was way out of my thrifty loving price range.

Things grow big in this barn....

For greater see-ability you can buy one of these humongous light bulbs.  They're about 14" long!

Or you can buy this bird mansion.  

It's hard to see just how big this suitcase is without a reference, but it had to be at least 4' long.  

Love these chippy old beauties.

What did I buy?
Three of these old fruit drying racks for just $5 each.  I see signs. 

I couldn't resist the biggest stamp I've ever seen!  This thing is 9" long and the rubber is in perfect condition.  This one is a keeper.

Sue's Country Barn will be open daily 10:00am - 5:00pm through October 26th.
12607 E. Hwy 120 in Manteca, Ca.  For more information you can call 209-607-6013.  Sorry, still no website or Facebook page that I know of.

Vintage Inspiration Link Party

Welcome back to the Vintage Inspiration Link Party.  We're so happy to have you partying with us!  This is the place to share anything old, treasured, passed-down or tattered, but you can also share projects that were made to look old, including repurposed and upcycled creations.

When you link up here at Vintage Inspiration Party your links will be seen on all 4 blogs!!

This week it was my turn to pick the features from last week's party and it sure wasn't easy. Thank you all for sharing your creative ideas, fabulous projects, vintage finds, and for inspiring us every week!

My 1929 Charmer shared her amazing deck reveal.  It's such a cozy space and packed full of vintage charm and beautiful fall decor!

D.D.'s Cottage and Design gave this secretary/desk a makeover with homemade chalk paint.  I love this color with the contrasting white interior.

Itsy Bits and Pieces shared her cottage style guest room that she decorated with some gorgeous and very special treasures.  I love this gallery wall she created with vintage dog pictures.

This wreath made from a drop cloth and embroidery hoop is so clever.  Simply Country Life shares a great tutorial on how to make your own.

Lavender Dreams made this adorable bear out of a quilt that she's had all her life.  The quilt was tattered beyond repair and she finally got up the courage to bring it back to life.

Red Tin Inn created this wonderful hanging basket from an old galvanized feeder and chalkboard paint.  It's so versatile and it could be decorated for any season by simply changing out the Christmas decor and chalkboard greeting.

If you were featured this week, feel free to use this button on your blog.  You can grab the code from my sidebar.
