From This...To This!

Sorry for my long absence! I have wanted to post pictures of the transformation of the Barn for the first Barn Sale but have been sidelined by cooking some real food for my family, placing orders (thank you!), compiling numbers (to see if I can do this again), figuring out how to actually get the pictures off my new camera and onto the computer (have I told you that I am technologically challenged?) and catching up on some zzzzzz's!

I was thrilled with the transformation and again, cannot thank my friends enough who stayed up with me into the wee hours of the morning to get it done! as well as a huge thank you to my husband for being the cabana boy...albeit in an environment much different from a cabana! Brrrrr!

     FROM THIS...


Welcome to a virtual tour of Life's Patina first Barn Sale!

A couple of my children and their friends made dog treats to sell at the sale. We used our son Aidan's drawing of our dog Willow as the label. They were a huge hit and the dogs liked them!

We don't want to forget our other furry friends! Next sale they will have to come up with a recipe for cat treats! 

We hope that you can experience our Holiday Open House on Sunday, December 11th as well as the transformation of the Barn at
Willowbrook Farm 
1750 North Valley Road
Malvern, PA 19355
8:00 am - 4:00 pm

Fulfillment of a Dream

Wow! My head is still spinning from all the love and support that I experienced last night with the Opening  of the Barn Sale at Willowbrook Farm! From the friends who hung tight with me until the wee hours of the morning in a cold drafty barn to price and set up, to the contractors who were scrambling to get all the renovations finished in time, to my family who gobbled down way too many bad pizzas in the last week; you all helped make this dream come true! 
XOXOXO's go out to all of you! 

Come check us out this weekend! We will have hot mulled cider, yummy goat cheeses for you to sample from Yellow Springs Farm and delicious Springerle cookies homemade by the Springerle House in  Strasburg. You can nibble while you shop!
