a day in the country




I've been visiting my sister this weekend...and we're been on a couple of junking adventures...today we went to a barn-barn-barn sale (yes, that's three barns on one property).  Since I've been paring down, my eye was going more for quality junk...rather than quantity.  This sale was out in the country...and obviously at the end of the road...










A few of my finds from today's barn sale and yesterday's yard/thrift store sales...



Always love rusted metal...these locks and the metal box are sitting on a metal desk that I picked up for $2.00...
































ironstone and silverplate is dear to my heart...the english ironstone tureen was only $1.00...

















A bit of color is good...I picked up quite a few keys...good for art projects
























and the rusted locker baskets and the green painted wood screen...perfect display items for art shows this summer...
I have one more day before I head home...let's see what else I can find...
