This weekend was full of family barbecues, but I did manage to squeeze in a fabulous estate sale at a very old farm in Bridgewater, CT.
They wouldn’t let us in the actual house, it was allegedly empty.
Everything that was for sale was in a barn that had been converted to living quarters — and it was awesome in there. A very small kitchen with everything built into the walls, and that’s where I started of course, and I was crushed to find that there was NO Pyrex.
There were tons of old books and old sheet music – mostly classical – and an empty cello case. I almost bought the case in order to decoupage it but decided to leave it for someone who would treat it honorably.
Sometimes I have a hard time believing I live near such beauty as this farm and it’s property.
And check out these ancient floorboard in the actual barn!
There were a ton of tools and gardening items and things I didn’t even know what to do with in here.
There was also this gorgeous cabinet that the estate sale people for which the estate sale company was asking $300.

from Edgar Allan Poe published in 1934, some Bach sheet music
And my favorite finds!

box for tea that I am decoupaging for a friend.
