2013 Barn Sale count down underway

And so it begins!

The next weeks will be full!  My "to do" list is much longer then my "to done" list -- so, feeling a bit like a squirrel readying for winter. 

This is how the weeks ahead will look:
  • gather, gather, gather -- vintage finds come rolling in!
  • complete & hang posters -- all over the Chippewa Valley!
  • update mailing list and send out postcards -- I still like the old fashioned way of card in hand!
    • If I miss you with a postcard - my apologies, means you are not on my mailing list - yet...email me if you want to be with name & address:  Email
  • untarp the hayloft and begin to unload bins!
  • gather, gather, and gather some more!
  • open prized seasonal & holiday bins in house -- my stuff -- begin to let go of some of my goodies for the sale!
  • update this very blog with the SUPER SECRET password to 10% savings the morning of the sale!
  • gather, gather, gather!
  • cut corn stalks, harvest pumpkins, "fall up" the hayloft and farmyard!
  • breathe.....!
Hoping you will be able to join in on all the fun!

Join us at Meadowview Farm.  Meet Ralphie the goat & Acorn our ferocious Tom Cat!  Enjoy an apple from our little orchard while you walk the grounds - seeing how vintage finds can enhance gardens!  Climb the stairs to the hayloft of our 100 year old Danish Barn & fill up a basket!

P.S. -- I am feeling like this may be my last sale, I am not going anywhere, just realigning my life a bit.  I will head into (hopefully) my last surgery the week after the sale. 

                I will treat this sale as a true Celebration! 

Thanks for letting me dream with my eyes open!  Cross it off my bucket list once more!

I will note those days on my calendar and maybe I'll make a trip "up north" for this. I'll tell my friend, Diane....she always brings her van 'cause my car is to small to hold her treasures!

I so wish I live closer :-) It sounds like it's going to be so much fun!! And I'm sure I could find a few "treasures" (as my honey so lovingly calls them) to bring home with me :-) Lots of hugs to you, you are in my thoughts daily.. Have a wonderful weekend, Melissa

I just found your blog and wanted to say thank you for the inspiration and heart that goes into your posts and photos. I live just down the road in Eau Claire and plan to attend the Barn Sale - I am so excited and perhaps I will get a chance to meet you in person.

Hi Kari,

I can't wait to come back for yet another visit to Meadowview...I miss this place so very much and have such fond memories growing up here at my grandparent's farm! I thank you again for everything you have done to preserve the farm and my family's history!

I look forward to seeing you this weekend and chatting, and I have a little something about the farm I made a few years back that I would love to show you!
