Well, the barn sale was a bust.  I came home with three birch logs from the firewood pile.  And I forgot my camera!!!!  Ugh.  But my buddy Sharon got herself a fabulous old iron sink from the 100 plus year old farmhouse!  SCORE....and it was only 10 bucks!  It will look great in her log home on the lake and right in keeping with the rustic kitchen decor.
It was such a beauty day and we enjoyed ourselves immensely.  The drive round the lake was just beautiful and we would get glimpses of the blue water shimmering through the birch trees.
Maybe you are wondering about the birch logs??  Well, I plan on using a spade bit and drilling some holes in them to accommodate my votive candle holders.  I will place them in the faux "fireplace" with greenery and berries for a Christmasy look.

Hello dear Friends!  Hope you all have been well since your last visit to this little spot in the blogosphere.  We are fine here at the bungalow and as busy as ever.  Renovations are taking place and the bungalow is getting a new look.
Tomorrow morning, bright and early, my friend Sharon and I are heading out to the south shore area of  Lake Nipissing for a "barn sale".  I cannot wait!  The excitement and anticipation are an important part of the experience,as well as the possibility of finding "treasures" or maybe something which I can re-sell.  Sharon loves antiques as much as I do, so I know she is excited too.
I will look forward to posting some pictures and maybe a little tale or two tomorrow here on the blog.
