All barns should be round . . .

. . . and all round barns should be full of beautiful, fun, Frenchy-type, unusual things!

The Round Barn Potting Company in Andover is a lovely refurbished old barn.  The only building left standing from a former farm, now in the middle of a residential area.  Still has the old brick flooring.  Makes me wonder what the farm looked like many years ago if the barn was this fabulous.  Why oh why can't our farm have a barn like this?   Anyway, this barn is full of fantastic offerings to those of us who love all things beautiful.

I'll just let the pictures do the talking . . .






See anything in these pictures that I should have bought?  Yeah, me too (many, many things) but I wanted to eat the rest of the trip and couldn't spend ALL my cash now could I?  Then again, there is always plastic!



Don't feel sorry for me just yet.  I did manage to pry my billfold out of my purse for a few (2 trips to the car!) things.  I need to loose a few pounds anyway!


The vignettes were over the top and I got some great ideas.  Makes me wish I had a room just for displays!  We talked to the owner, Lori, and of course she was as nice as could be.  I'll be looking for her at the Junk Bonanza!

This just happens to be my 100th post.  The joy!  The rapture!  The hours of computer time!  I plan on showing you the rest of my trip before getting to the celebration but I might not be able to wait that long.  You'll just have to keep VISITING and COMMENTING to see what I'll do!

Gonna be hot, hot, hot here today so guess I'll stay in and (yuk! yuk! yuk!) clean the house.  Or maybe sew ~ that's way more fun!

Have a fun weekend and create something wonderful . . .
