From Looking Back...to Looking Ahead...


 In my last post...I reminisced a bit.  But, in this post...I'm looking ahead to something exciting!  What I'm about to share with you is something I've wanted to do since we built our house 4 years ago.  Yes, I can hardly believe it...but, we were actually in our house 4 years Halloween Day! My oh my...How time flies!


You can kind of see how our place is laid out in this picture.  To the right of our house you can see a cabin, a glorious big Maple tree...


 ...and a barn.  It is an old tobacco barn that has seen better days...yet, it still has its charm.


  So...instead of thinking about it - I'm just putting it out there...  I'm gonna have a barn sale there next year!

My sister and I have decided it is time to make it official...no more talk...just action.  So we are giving ourselves a year...a year to clean (oh my...the groundhogs have made a mess out of that place), a year to haul out the junk that was there long before we built here, a year to shop for furniture and fabulous finds, well, I keep saying a year to prepare, but honestly, knowing me...I'll put it off as long as I possibly can.  Can't help it...that is just the way I roll!


But with all that being said...we have a cabin that my late father-n-law lovingly restored...


...a really neat cave that just kind of lures you in...


...and we even have an outhouse!  So what more do you need for a fun fall afternoon on the farm.
 So, y'all have to hold me to it...o.k.  And we'll look forward to seeing you next fall..for our first barn sale...right here at Cobblestone Farms!

It looks beautiful Cathy. A barn sale sounds so exciting. I know it will be amazing. Too bad I don't live closer.

Did you make your barn quilt? If not, where did you get it?
