My, that was some good barn love yesterday!! Thanks for sharing your links, thoughts and memories.
My news?! I'm so happy and terribly excited to announce that my mother (Nan) has just opened an Etsy shop, Nik Nak Nan. How wonderful for the many who have fallen in love with her barn and amazing sense of style. She will be dipping into her very own personal collection of vintage artifacts and objects for display to share some favorites with you! Currently she's unveiling items from her California "inventory" and come summer, she'll share special selections from her well loved barn. My mother has always been attracted to the beauty of imperfection...wear and tear, dings, patina, rust, artful repairs... how old objects can inspire the imagination. This fascination and her keen eye are represented well in her new shop. There is beauty and dignity in ordinary objects, such as this hand crafted dustpan from the '40's. Oddly enough, Remodelista featured dustpans as decor... just today!
So please give Nik Nak Nan a big welcome and a little visit. Yay, Mom!
