Barn Sale Time: Hometalk Halloween Hunt
Last weekend, Doug and I took a little drive out to Frederick, Maryland by way of Lucketts, Virginia. We really love having the opportunity to get out of the city and into the surrounding Virginia and Maryland countryside. Many weekends we can be found out in Middleburg, Virginia for lunch and antiquing, Purcellville, Virginia for whiskey tasting or Delaplane, Virginia for a trip to our favorite winery, Barrel Oak.
This past Saturday we took the opportunity of lovely, summer-like day and an invitation from Sweet Clover Barn to come out to one of their monthly sales of hip vintage furniture and other housewares. We also made stops at Chartreuse & Co. in Buckeystown, Maryland, and Old Lucketts Store and On A Whim in Lucketts, Virginia.
The event was the Hometalk Halloween Hunt, which was intended to be a blogger meet-up affair at the above spots, but as Doug and I got stuck in traffic on the Beltway, we missed most of the festivities. No matter! There were still loads of fantastic things to see and buy and photograph so here are a few of my favorites from our day trip.

Stay tuned later in the week for a couple of projects I've been working on using what I found while I was out hunting and a couple of little things gifted to me during the day. Here's a big hint: I've been learning to sew and some of my inspiration came from the Halloween Hunt!
I was invited along with other DC-area home bloggers by Sweet Clover Barn to take part in the Hometalk Halloween Hunt. In return, I agreed to make a purchase from one of the stores on the tour and write a post about what I created. All content, ideas and opinions are my own.
