So I LOVE their website and have spent ALOT of time browsing all the goodies before. No doubt about it, I'd put my $25 gift certificate toward the purchase of the little white primitive table! I have been eyeballing it for a while now!

Destiny said...

Just added a link to your giveaway on my sidebar ; ) Hope you get lots of entries...but not TOO many..I WANT to WIN!!!!

Jackie said...

That charm is the SWEETEST thing ever! Love the BH Boys - their booth at Farm Chicks last year was amazing!

Natalie ( Sparrow ) is just the sweetest thing. I would definately pick one of her charms.

I have never visited their site before. Thanks for that little find for me. I'm not sure but I think I would choose the gas can or the wooden tool caddy.

My Shabby Roses said...

Wow! What a fun giveaway! I have visited the Barn House Boys website many a time. They've done a wonderful job and have such a talent with their display and phography. I love the seltzer bottles. I haven't found one yet so I just drool over theirs.

Ali said...

Another fab giveaway! So many lovely things at Barn House but I am eyeballing that lovely primitive caddy! That would look lovely on my dining table to hold silverware and linens! Love it! Thanks!

Amy Kinser said...

I love galvanized anything so that would probably be the direction I would head. Thanks for the chance to win something over there.

Florence said...

I would love to win this give away, those Barn House boys know how to pick them. Natalie's charms are the best. Florence

krys kirkpatrick said...

I love the Barnhouse boys. I drove down from Kirkland for one of their events...it was amazing. I would get the galvanized tub. I love metal...love it, you can do so much with it, from planters to an ice bucket. Your blog is amazing by the way, I love your style.

cerealjoe said...

So many quirky things at the Barnhouse... and I have such a small flat! I really need to stop living in capitals so I can afford a bigger place so I can have more space to decorate.

In any case, the cow frames (or is bulls and not cows in those frames) are pretty awesome.

Cathy said...

the big ole ironstone pitcher! or the cow charm (by Sparrow!)...or.....

Martha said...

Impossible to pick just one isn't it...you have a great blog Kristin!!!

I would pick the ironstone pitcher or the shell bottles...they are wonderful!

I cannot believe how many wonderful give-a-ways you have done my dear:)

Joelle said...

I love barn house! I am a sucker for baskets.. anything wicker I would look at buying, or any pitchers.. I esp like their old silver pitchers. And I also love old egg baskets and have my eye on one. - I could spend 25,000 in their store! I hope I win!
Thanks for the opportunity!

Raye Marie said...

I am in love with Barn House. If I won I would have a hard time choosing one item. I really like the vintage childrens gardening tools, any of the ironstone platters, the locker basket, the enamel was basins, I could go on and on. I love the charm as well. Perfect for spring! Thanks for all of the fun.

Ticking and Toile said...

I really love your site!! It's so fun & you have a wonderful sense of humor!

I love everything on their site but if I had to choose it would probably be the little primitive table or bench!

I'll grab you button & put it on my sidebar, and link up on facebook!

Shellagh

p.s. have you been over to put your name in the hat for my jeanne d' arc giveaway?? come come, if you haven't already!

Becky@Tea Party said...

I love the turkey basket and industrial bread pan! I can already see where these would go in my house. Great giveaway, thank you!

Kindred Spirit Soap Co. said...

I too love Natalie's shadow boxes. My fav find is the Ironstone wash bowl. If I were to win I would buy a something made from burlap.
Have a great day
Julie

Vintage Junky said...

It would have to be the little soldered boxes to hang on the wall.

Off to tweet about this great giveaway!

Carey said...

Just started stopping by your site a few days ago...and I LOVE it!! Never been to the Barn House before. Lots of fun. I'd probably go for the locker basket or the turkey egg basket. Thanks for the giveaway!

Dionne said...

I LOVE Regina. I am glad she won!

Wow, more giveaways? You are so generous!!!

There are too many goodies in this store to choose from. I would either put it towards getting that cute Primitive Table, or else I would get that old picnic basket. It's picnic season!

Preppy Mama said...

Love, love, love Barn House!! So hard to pick my faves, but I would have to say I am narrowing it down to the numbered lavender sachets and the painted number buckets...to start!
Thanks!!

Preppy Mama said...

Just blogged about it!

Thanks!!

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

I want to thank you for introducing me to Barn House and fueling my addiction for chippy paint & rusty things. There are so many things I love..but I think I would use the gift certificate toward the Turkey egg basket. I also love the little charm and it is adorable.

Prudence said...

I would love to have one of the barn house bottles with a sea shell on the top.

Susan said...

Love your blog!! I have been eying that soap dish collection for a week or so - I may just "have" to have it!

Tanya said...

Love your blog! I adore the charm and would probably use the certificate for the Turkey egg basket! Thanks for the giveaway!

creekside rummager said...

I'm so glad I found your blog. The Barn House symbol caught my eye right away. I check them nearly every day and have got a wire caddy from them so far. I would use the $25 for either wire, rust or white ironstone.

Kate said...

Love your blog and I truly enjoy following you. I would use the gift certificate toward a cross bottle or soldered cross. Have a wonderful weekend.

Kate

Jennifer said...

I love your site and girl - you would have soooo much fun in my yard - wooden totes, funnels in every size, rust galore and more! I've always wanted a selzter bottle but there are so many treasures! Jennifer jennsthreegraces

Jacque said...

First thing is if you find something you really LOVE, get it that very minute because I have learned the Barn House goods go fast!!! Love Natalie's work, already own two of her charms! Wire, galvanized, or rusty so I could show it off to "Creekside Rummager" and make her envious! Just kidding I would probably give it to her! ~Jacque

Marci said...

i love the barn house boys! i think the bee skep...or anything in the apothecary or the dough bowl...

i'm so happy that you have a blog! i love your etsy store and didn't know you were a blogger till i saw you this morning. we are from the same state...you live by my friend v. i love the little restaurant where you live...they have the prettiest deserts in the world!;D

Anna said...

Oh.MY! I NEED that charm! I'm a ranch girl but raised sheep all my life and can't wait to have kiddos that raise them...aagh please random.org pick me:)
If I won the $25 I would buy...the turkey egg basket or no the Soldered Cross!!! I want that!!

Anna said...

Hi Kristin! my tiny town is waaay far from you :( I'm down by Mexico/CA border but who knows if I will be driving up to MT to visit family this summer. And my sister and I plan a little sisters weekend every year and we were just talking about doing UT!
So I mapped Torrey and saw Salina sorta/kinda-ish near you and I've eaten there at Mom's Cafe, such a small world! Do you know any Yardley's? I've bought some heifers from them before...

WhiteWhispers2u said...

Awesome Giveaway! I adore those boys J&J what a fabulous giveaway.I am missing them today in Camas.......Only because my daughter is having a baby.LOL

I would buy the Rallo "Sicilian" handblown wine bottle of course beings I am Sicilian.~Cheers Kim

she dreams big! said...

What are the chances the last comment will win? I think I'm just making the deadline! The sheep charm is adorable! Makes me think of the county fairs when my daughter showed sheep for 4-H! And her sheep won too!

I have always, always wanted those seltzer bottles from the Barn Boys. That is definately what I would use that $25 bucks for! Please, oh please pick me!
