For those of you interested in the farmhouse look and have a creative spirit, I offer up the following pictures for inspiration.

Have you seen the new show on Lifetime called "Picker Sisters"? These two cute, young things travel around finding stuff similar to the above. Then, they take them back to Los Angeles where their shop guy makes furniture, light fixtures, etc. out of their finds. And, of course, they then sell them to their rich clients.

I took these pictures at a farm sale a year ago. Things were going cheap that day - I could have made a fortune. Oh well, the story of my life! Or as they say down on the farm - a day late and a dollar short!!

I'm joining in the following parties this week:

Funky Junk Interiors for Sat. Nite Special

The Shabby Chic Cottage for Transformation Thursday

Common Ground for Vintage Inspiration Friday

Be a sweetie,

Love the one with the tree branch "growing" through the wagon wheel. These days around here people are sending this all to salvage for $$.

Went to Denver today and visited my newlyweds. Will stay overnight in September as there is a Park Hill home tour then. I love this area!♥♫

Some good "stuff" there Sally!

We've seen Picker Sisters a few times. We always watch American Pickers.

Yep, a Junquer's Dream this would have been! My problem is that I'm inspired to drag too many Found Treasures Home and have to edit what I will keep or sell... decisions, decisions!!!!!!!!!
