Did I really need more stuff?

 Wisconsin Barn Sale!

Just what I need...more stuff...I guess if I have to be addicted to something, better this than something bad! LOL!

I've been to this one a few years ago but I thought they had quit...I'm glad they did not!
I've found some pretty good treasures in the past.

I love this perfectly crocheted pillow. At the very bottom of the picture above are a pair of pink slippers with ruffly pink flowers. The instant I saw them I remembered my mom had the same thing when I was young and she loved those slippers! These are in great shape and for $2 it was worth the memory.

I never pass up small ornaments if they are cheap, a couple of Gurley candles and some ruby glass found at the thrift store near the barn sale.

I love the old rose picture

Then we went to an antique shop in River Falls. I can't pass up vintage flower hats if they are cheap, a pretty crochet pot holder in the lower left corner and the little silk satin drawstring bag that was too adorable to pass up for $1.
Vintage crochet thread. I always grab that if it's cheap.

The chippy green tote will go on top of my chippy white hutch.

A girl can never have too much vintage stuff!

Thanks for stopping!

I'm linking to these parties;

I see I am not the only one who jumps at the chance to get old art and old crochet thread. I am such a sucker for those.

Too many??? How do you know when you reach the point when you have too many?? I suppose when a camera crew from the show "Hoarders" shows up at your door. As long as you can still set up pretty vignettes with what you have, you are okay.
Great finds, Faye!!
