A little Tired, A lot Happy!!

Traveling the quiet road of Highway 31 through Kentucky yesterday was not only successful for a Thursday (not many people participating until Friday, Saturday & Sunday), but it was scenic. See the house up there? Yard sale. I had an open invitation to go to many homes like this one. Here is a close up of this  old beauty.

Check out this other house that I got a close up visual on during the yard sale trip.

The really funny thing is, these homes are so not the nicer, antebellum Kentucky homes. Not even close. This is the down side of traveling alone. I saw the really stunning antebellum homes to late to grab my camera and there was ALWAYS someone driving right behind me on this 2 lane highway. 
I would be driving along enjoying this country view,

and Bam!! There stood a magnificent beautiful old Kentucky Home! Stunning behind the grove of trees that hides her from the highway until you are right upon her. Oh well. Here is quick glimpse of  the little town that I spent the better part of my afternoon in. 

So ya wanna see what I got do ya? Ok, but this is not all of it. This is only what is in the house. The rest is in the garage waiting to be cleaned, refurbished and stuff. So here ya go....

I wish that you all could have been with me. It was quiet an adventure to put it mildly;) Oh, and FYI for anyone interested, at the end of September (30th and October 1,2) this area of Kentucky will be pouring out for the final yard sale blow out. Apparently it is such a major deal, that everyone participates in one way or another. The locals call it the "Roller Coaster" because it is on highway 63 and this highway dips, curves, swerves like a roller coaster. A large number of locals were quiet a buzz about this event! So on my calendar it goes!!

Well, that does it for me for now. I am just slightly tired from all of yesterday and this morning treasure hunting. I hope that you all are having a wonderful day and I will see you all later...

  4. Ellen,
    I wish I could have been with you. You are really close to where I grew up. That would be a fun day. My great-grandfather's house looked a lot like the one in your first pic. Thanks for stopping by.

  5. Dear Ellen,

    I just found your blog and I saw your post about drilling wholes in the silverware. I make wind chimes out of old silverware and I have gone through dozens of drill bits. Do you have a good one that you use that doesn't break. If so would you mind to let me know your secret.

    Thanks and thank soooooo much for stopping by my blog.

    Take care,


  6. Hi Ellen,
    Thanks so much for becoming a follower of my blog. I came over to say hello and get to know you and your adventures. I would love to have been yard sale hopping in your part of the woods. Looks like there were lots finds there, and oh so pretty houses. I'm off now to look around your lovely blog.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  7. I hope you are finding lots of treasures and having a great time on your get-a-way.
