I graduated from a fashion design program at the top of my class..I guess I’m a little bit of a nerd....but my true love was, and is, interior design. Thankfully the two are very much the alike. Put together with a love for the old and the new, City Girl Barn Treasures was created.
City Girl was born and raised in the city, sky scrapers, cement, hustle and bustle, traffic and not to be forgotten... the smell of the city which.. can be good or bad..depending on where you are..lol... I love it all. You can jump on a bus, train or in a cab at any given time of the day or night and be anywhere in the city . There is always a choice of restaurants and if you prefer to cook at home...there’s a 24hr grocery store somehwere. One of my most favourute things to do in the city is to sit on a patio with a glass of wine and watch people go by. Stylish women in high heels and expensive bags sporting newly coiffed hair. Men with manicured nails designer shoes and of course a great belt...a must have for a stylish city boy. The lights of the city at night can be mesmorizing...it’s never too dark. Despite loving everything about the city I also longed for a simplier life..the quiet of the country. For as long as I can remember I enjoyed long drives in the countryside stopping at antique stores, flea markets and definately garageg sales...nothing like a great garage sale. Most of the time I buy things cause I love them...weather I have space for it or not..uummm yaaa... I have a lot of stuff..lol. I get home and transform whatever I purhcased into a one of a kind treasure fit for the a downtown condo, or stylish country house.
I finally followed my heart and purchased an old farmhouse in the country.. and when I say old...I mean old...150 years old to exact..lol and moved out of the city..well not too far.. I still need my fix every now and then.
The first time I drove to my new home at night I couldn’t believe how dark it was. I could hear the leaves rustling on the trees...I’ve never really heard that. I could even see fire flies...yup I said fire flies..thats; a big deal to a city girl.
My new old home stands on 2.5 acres of land and includes a beautiful barn full of space for my workshop and treasures. After much thought I decided to restore the barn and make a beautiful space for my old city friends and new country friends to purchase treasures both old and new.
Welcome To The City... I’m city girl, and these are my treasures
