The Christmas Barn

Hi everyone!

With holiday shopping season well underway, I wanted to share a beautiful shop that opens its' doors for just six weekends each year. The Christmas Barn is located out in the southeastern Wisconsin countryside. Each year it overflows with handmade local artisan items, seasonal decor and fabulous antiques & vintage items.  The styling of the many vignettes is so fantastic and I always walk away with a ton of inspiration!  And a smoking credit card...just sayin'.....

Mr. Bluebird and I took a drive out there a few weeks ago and this year's offerings didn't disappoint.

How cute is this vintage red phonograph?

After this weekend's big snowstorm, I wished I had bought a pair of these handmade woolen mittens. Love these!

This  vintage travel sign caught my eye.

What more can I say?

There are two working fireplaces. Have you jumped on the snowy owl decor trend?

It wouldn't be Wisconsin without Packers and cheese merchandise!

I loved this has battery operated fairy lights inside.

The fireplace in the entry is stunning and beautifully styled.

This November/December store is a little gem and worth the visit. It's an easy drive from Milwaukee, Madison and Chicago. You could really make a day of it and head over to Lake Geneva, for even more unique shopping and dining in one of cutest towns you'll ever visit.

That wraps up today's Wisconsin travel adventures - ha! I just love poking around all the little shops and towns, how about you? At Christmas time, it is especially charming.

Thanks for stopping by,
