Saturday Fun!

After a week of rainy, cool days our weather was perfect on Saturday and we took full advantage of it. We packed as much fun into one day as we could.

Tessa and I started out the day with her friend Jenny. Jenny has been staying with us this week while her parents are taking her older sister to school at Notre Dame. We love Jenny and she is a delight to have around.

They agreed to get up early with me and head north to BattleGround to attend an event at the Barn House - a type of vintage flea market. It was quite the adventure as it was way out in the country and I was quite sure where I was going. We did take a ten mile detour but with some help from my dad over the phone we were able to get back on track and find the Barn House.

What fun!

Here are some pictures of the BarnHouse

Tessa and Jenny had fun with my camera doing a little photo shoot!.

Here are some of the fun treasures we brought home with us.

I had been looking for something to put in the cloche I had bought at a store that was going out of business and when I found these old books tied together with antique lace I knew they would be perfect!

We feel in love with the little white antique baby dresses we saw hanging on the ladder so we bought them along with the antique hangers and hung them over Tessa's window as a window valance. We add a pair of old baby shoes we found there too! Doesn't it look darling!

Then we found this sweet "sweet" sign - perfect for Tessa's room too!

We headed home to meet up with Cali and Jim. Cali had had a brunch with "The Crew" - her group of friends she has gone through Girl's Camp with.
