La Maison Rustique Barn Sale

This is the 3rd weekend of the month and it's time for another visit to the FAB La Maison Rustique Barn sale in Temecula.

I needed to go to pickup a wonderful wooden vintage paper sorter that I asked to be saved for me. I should have just purchased it last month and brought it home but had to think about it for a "second" and email the Barn to hold it for me.

I'm going to use this in my "new" studio for the TONS of scrapbook paper I have. It will be nice to have it organized in some way to enable me to find SoMEthIng!

Also, Congratulations to La Maison Rustique for being featured in the April issue of Somerset LIFE Magazine. Woo Hoo!!! Check it out, on the newstands April 1.

I arrived at the Barn and started clicking photos as Sandy, a Altered Artist in Canada had mentioned "wouldn't it be nice if you could give me a virtual tour and I could tell you to buy this, buy that?" I thought I would give her (and you) a view of what they had this time.

Let's start our VIRTUAL TOUR....

Hope you enjoyed the tour. I didn't even go upstairs or out in the garden area!!!! So much eye candy, when shopping at the Barn you need to circle and circle to finding new delights each time :}

The Barn is so FABuloUs because all the items are moved and restaged with new items each month so you might have missed it last time and discover it this time. It's also fun to see the vignettes that they set up for the merchandise.

This is a picture of myself and Linda who owns La Maison Rustique Barn. She is such a giving person and I feel blessed to have found the barn and these lovely ladies. The next picture is of Sherri of Glamarella Junk and Linda. Sherri hand tye dyes vintage silk slips for fun/sexy fashionware. Sherri also is a wonderful artist who creates rustique jewelry, altered art and the marketing of wonderful Vintage tee shirts.

Of course, I couldn't get out of the Barn without a few extra purchases. I purchased this great antique looking personalized necklace made out of the a vintage watch casing. Cool huh? Necklace by Lizzy Bee's. She doesn't have a website yet but you can email her. Also, I purchased some old typewriter keys...I KNOW I can make SOMethiNG with these. tee hee

To put the icing on the cake for the day, I had a package waiting for me when I got home. I had purchased this creative Martini glass art doll from Sandy. She is lovely and will have a place of honor in my studio.

I had a delightful day and I hope you have a delightful, art filled week!

Eeek thanks so much for the virtual tour Jackie! I love the doll heads and the necklace you bought! I just about freaked out when I got a closer look at the doll I sent ya. The german doll broke off the scrabble tile and all I see is a torso and a head scattered. SHOOT!!!!! Do you think it happened when the post man through it over the fence. I'm so bummed!

oooooooh, LOVE that vintage paper sorter!

PS E6000: I don't take the top off of the tube. I cut one of the corners off the bottom of the tube and squeeze from there. When I am finished, I place the tube in a zip lock bag and store until the next time. Keep clipping the end for each project.

Hope that works for you. It works GREAT for ME :)
