Barn Sale Fun

One of the best things about living in New England is the plethora of barn sales.  They are everywhere and I am completely obsessed.

This time around I did not buy anything, but I l-o-v-e-d everything I saw.  The one I went to happens once a month so I will definitely be back.  Look at these great items!!!

Barn sale 1

I am seriously considering buying one of these large bins.  No Idea what I would do with it, but I keep picturing it in a vertical position working as some type of shelving fixture, or lying horizontally across some hay bales chock full of pumpkins on a rustic fall front porch.  Gorgeous, right???

Barn sale 4

I am sure my fellow “Golden Girls” fans know why I took a picture of this sign.  The girls sang this jingle in season 7 episode 24 while they were waiting for Rose in the hospital (“My beer is Rheingold the dry beer, think of Rheingold whenever you buy beer, it’s not bitter not sweet it’s the extra dry treat won’t you try extra dry Rheingold beer”.)  God, I love those women!!!

Which items did you like best?

For today’s song I chose two from one of my dad’s favorite movies in honor of Sunday being Father’s Day.  It’s been nearly seven years since he died and my world has been such a cold dark color without him.  But he and my mother gave me the foundation from which my love of music was born, and from the moment he and I first watched “Eddie and the Cruisers” together, there was no denying how much he loved it and its soundtrack.

We will not discuss the fact that it nearly drove me into a catatonic state every time my dad refused to acknowledge that these songs were NOT by my true love Bruce Springsteen and his E Street Band (so so sorry, Bossman 😦  ).  My dad forgave me for a lot of things, so I must show him the same courtesy here.  So Dad, the second song is for you because I know how much you loved it.  The first one is for us & how much I yearn to relive all the tender years we spent together again.  And how I wish we had more.  Te amo, Dad.

“Oh oh oh tender years

Won’t you wash away my tears 

How I wish you were near

Please don’t go tender years”

Eddie & the Cruisers/John Cafferty & the Beaver Brown Band:  “Tender Years“.

Eddie & the Cruisers/John Cafferty & the Beaver Brown Band:  “On The Dark Side“.

Until next time, happy digging!!!
