my treasures

here's a look at the goodies i brought home from the farm chicks show.

The last photo may need a bit of an explanation since you can't really see the whole thing. It's a beverage stand...the part you can't see has a bottom shelf. The top opens up to a cooler, which is what you're looking at. The piece was made by the sweetest old man named Don, from Temecula, CA. He goes out and helps people tear down old fences, then he repurposes them into things like this. The fixtures are vintage...the towel holder in the center there and it's hard to make out, but there's an old-fashioned bottle opener just to the right of the towel holder. There's an old handle on the top of the chest too (which Don told me he got in trouble with his wife for using because it was expensive & she had another idea for it...boy they were a cute couple.) They even invited us to their barn show in November & said if we had an RV we could park on their property...4 acres in wine country...quite tempting I must say!

The Farm Chicks really know how to put on a good show. We had an absolute blast & can't wait for the next one!
