Ashley Creek Farm

We had another beautiful day here in the northwest.  The temperature ranged from 30 degrees when we woke up to a high of 74!

Dan had the day off. And since the weather was perfect, we headed out to a pumpkin patch.  A few friends recommended a little hidden secret….Ashley Creek Farm. So we were anxious to check it out.

Ashley Creek harvests pumpkins, corn, gourds, garlic and more! And they sell them for far too cheap, in my opinion!

Look at all of these beauties!

We’ve been to pumpkin patches that are muddy…soggy and rotten pumpkins…stems broken off.  These are all perfectly lined up by color and type of pumpkin. It was like shopping at a high end pumpkin patch, if such a thing exists!

Dan picked this pumpkin.  Guess how much it cost.  Do you have any wild guesses?  Why bother. You’re probably guessing too high!

We paid a whopping $5 for it! Are you amazed!?  {And Emmie couldn’t resist jumping into the background!}

Their corn stalks were $2 a bunch. They had several stalks wrapped together to create a bundle. And did I mention it was only $2 a bundle!!

And apparently there are no signs of running out of pumpkins anytime soon! As were were leaving, they pulled up another tractor full!

Before we left, we had to get a few token family pictures….

And here is a look at all of our goodies before we crammed it all into the car…

Other than having sweat drip down my torso in our blazing 74 degrees, the pumpkin patch trip was a complete success!!

Now I’ve got some decorating to do on my front porch!

A Day in the Country {Barn Sale Weekend}

Today was the perfect fall day. Cool morning temps. Sun shining.  Boots. And barn sales!!  So after the kids got on the bus, I headed out to hit a few of my favorites.

My first stop was to the Country Chicks.

{and the address for locals that are interested….13535 Littlerock Rd. SW – Rochester}

There were endless booths of antiques, fun junk, barn wood creations and more .

{succulents plantings}

{pumpkins, pumpkins and more pumpkins}

{old shovels….fun garden art  to write on the back of the shovel with chalk}

{rosehip branches and bittersweet wreaths}

I did end up buying two little wooden boxes. I wasn’t sure where I’d use them, but I can always find a use for an old wooden container!

 My next stop….The Clement House.

{7420 Lords Lane SW- Olympia}

When it comes to curb appeal, this place takes the cake!

Doesn’t it make you want to have a big red barn in your yard?

I only purchased a few pumpkins at the Clement House, but sure enjoyed walking around their barn and property.

{pumpkins galore outside the barn}

{fun antiques inside the barn}

{and more pumpkins}

I had a fun day buzzing around town, visiting the local barn sales!

Come back next week to see my little wooden boxes being put to use!

Are you heading out to a barn sale or pumpkin patch this weekend?
