We knew this was gonna be a hum-dinger of a day so we borrowed my friend's husband truck so we could be sure and buy all we saw that we wanted....no matter what size! How's THIS for a Texas Sized Truck!?!?!?! The Barn Sale was about a 2.5 hour drive from Houston so it was nice to cruise down the highway in this "Cowboy Limousine."
It was a beautiful day for a Barn Sale. It had been raining in Houston when we first started the trip but the weather was moving East and by the time we arrived.......Cool breezes and blue skies!
And just to PROVE we were at a Barn Sale.....check out these HUMONGOUS cows that were lounging about just next to the sale
And speaking of lounging....how about this cute little cowpoke! He was enjoying a bit of sunshine (and Cheeto's) while his family ran the hot chocolate stand.
This booth has beautiful, antique Christmas tree ornaments just like my Grandmother had on their tree. We loved the way she decorated her booth and marketed her wares with the beautifully, chippy windows!
Tyra purchased this old washtub made of metal. We are thinking it's going to be perfect on her back porch as a soft drink/beer/ice holder, especially during the warms months (and in Texas that about 10 months out of the year)! There are plugs in both sides so it will be easy to drain.
After the barn sale, but before we hit up the local antique shops, we needed to re-fuel. We were told this was a wonderful local place to get lunch and it was true! So, we went through the cafeteria type line and ordered up the sampler platter which had a bit of everything.....brisket, chicken, ribs, sausage, potato salad, beans, cole slaw, bread, pickles....but hey, we didn't get dessert. We are trying to watch our figures...LOL!
All in all, it was a great day to get out of the city, meet some sweet fellow blogging friends, buy some cool stuff and enjoy the weather! I am NO LONGER A BARN SALE VIRGIN!
Check in next time to see what else we bought!
