Barn Sale Find

Last week, my little sister Morna and I went to a "barn sale" in nearby Stillwater. I was seriously kicking myself for not bringing a camera, because the whole barn was decked out with beautiful handmade, vintage, and antique items for the home. I wanted to just move in (but it was a little drafty, you know, being a barn). So instead, we just wandered around and gazed at all the lovely items. I did find one thing to take home with me, a pretty amber colored candle holder. At first glance, I thought it was a lamp, but it just has a holder for a candle. 

I like the ambiance that the candlelight brings more than I would like a lamp there, anyway. I think it adds the perfect touch to the rest of our fall-ish decorations.

Speaking of Fall, it's really here! Unlike Summer and Spring, it seems like Fall and Winter really get down to business. When they arrive, you know it. Colors are bursting out on the trees, cool breezes make us grab for sweaters, and, perhaps most noticeably, it gets dark a whole lot faster in the evenings.

I love Fall. I can't wait to get to our local Apple Orchard, to buy pumpkins for carving, and fit in as many bonfires at my parent's house as possible! How about you- what's your favorite way to celebrate the season?


  1. Cool! It certainly tricked me; I assumed it was a lamp. I also really like your gold vase/pitcher. Perfect for fall.

  2. Yeah, it tricked me too! I think it could be pretty easily converted into a lamp though. Thanks! The vase was a wedding gift from my mom, I think she got it at Home Goods.

  3. I love that it's a candle holder. Perfect for fall. You find the cutest things, can you come out and help me "cute" up my place?

  4. I totally thought it was a lamp, too. : ) I love it though! It's probably even a "softer" look with a candle then ti would be with a light bulb. Beautiful!

  5. Your home is looking absolutely gorgeous Mikalah! That candle holder is fabulous. I want one! Lovely find my dear.

  6. It looks awesome! I love that its a candle holder, despite looking like a lamp. We have been to 2 orchards this fall, and I love it. Plus, nearly everything at the orchard provides a perfect background for pictures :)
